    Hello Pinside,
    We need to fumigate our house for termites. Will this be of any harm to my collection of games?????

    Please help,

    Thanks,

    I'd remove them. If smell gets into them, it may be hard if not impossible to get out.

    not to mention termites and wooden cabinets don't go well together

    If the house has termites I would think it would be a good idea to fumigate the big wooden boxes too.

    Just did my house about 3 months ago. Sales rep said no problems at all. Vicane gas is odorless so no smell. All 7 pins and my MS Pacman came through it with no issues. Hope this helps

    This helps greatly! I was also told odorless non-harmful to furniture and other stuff. Just wanted to make sure. Food was the only thing they said should be removed.

    With 38 games in the collection, I bet that helped immensely! Good luck.
