    My question seems to be confusing everyone. We hired a pest control company. That is how we know about the termites. However they said I’d need to hire someone else to come check behinds the walls or the outside siding of the house. Idk what type of professional to hire for this. Another pest company who can do a more invasive inspection? A contractor? An engineer?

      i'd recommend a mom and pop owner operated company rather than a large company that hires low pay low skill techs.

      We are not. We are buying this home. Owner has approved us to do a more invasive inspection at our own expense.

      I hired a pest control company and they are the ones who told me about the signs but said that I’d need to have someone come look inside the walls and or behind siding of house. Don’t know what type of person to hire for this? A contractor? Structural engineer?

    Any terminate company in your area. They do inspections. Speak to a few before they come out to get comfort on their methods. This is typically non-invasive.

      If there are termites around, they WILL come back. Not the next day, but give it a couple years and they'll be there again. It's no different than ants, spiders, or any other bug.
