ST. LOUIS, Mo.  – A Texas family of four – whose new home stands dangerously close to their old termite-infested, hurricane-ravaged house – has won the “Most Endangered Studs Contest,” created by BASF to find and treat the property most vulnerable to termite damage in the United States.

Janet and Eddie Gallaway of Anahuac, Texas, recently received a termite treatment by BASF with Termidor termiticide/insecticide. The Gallaways were selected by people across America who voted on the saveastud.com Web site (see related story).

Below are photos from the service, which was performed by Bill Clark Pest Control.
