How to locate and gain access to bath traps in a slab house?

for treatment of termites.


There is no easy way to do this unless you are ok with doing damage to Sheetrock.  It takes years of practice.  But basically the goal is to cut an access hole to where the plumbing pipes come through a slab and into the tub.  You would cut a hole into the Sheetrock above the baseboard, on the opposite side of the wall of a tub.  Sometimes you get lucky and the other side of a bathtub wall is a closet.  Sometimes you're not so lucky and the other side of your bathroom wall is a hallway or another place you would not want to have an access door.  You can probably find some information by doing a google search on "cutting a bath trap access door".
