Pregnant in a termite infested house - do I have to move?
posted by Wantok to health & fitness (6 answers total)
I am 19 weeks pregnant and living in a fantastic rental townhouse with my partner and our kelpie. Unfortunately the whole place is riddled with termites, and with two stories of wooden floors and a wooden frame, that's a lot of termites. The landlord has arranged for a termite inspection on Monday and presumably, treatment very quickly afterwards. Being pregnant, I am really, really concerned about this and finding it difficult to get any definitive information on how dangerous this is for the foetus. Has any one had any experience with this? Should we looking to move house asap or just finding somewhere to stay for a week or so?
