    You only killed a small number of termites. There are 10's to 100's more underground. They are just reading another portion of your house. get the professional chemicals that kill the colony. Two top of the line products are Termidor SC and Taurus SC

    I agree. The pest control company that I work for uses Termidor--it's very effective.
