I have had some termite infestations in my house and the exterminator
has finally agreed to do a whole house treatment with Termidor. A
second exterminator told me I am getting my money's worth and this
should take care of the problem. My house is on a slab.
My question has to do with repairing my wall. The termites did some
tunneling about two feet up the wall from the baseboards. The trail
they left behind is dirt, I'm told. My wall is dryboard with the swirly
plaster design on it and the dirt has embedded into the grooves pretty
well. I have used a stiff brush to clean it, but the trail still
Should I use a primer to cover it before painting, or will paint
suffice? Is there a way to clean it without painting?
