Interested in preventing these destructive bugs from becoming a menace to your home? View the passages below for helpful tips:
- Don’t let wood from your home touch the ground, and allow at least 3 inches of earth-to-wood spacing. Having wood too close to the ground allow termites to create shelter and feed. Window frames, and sidings should be roughly 6 inches from the ground. If you have a garden be sure that your soil or mulch don’t make contact above your foundation. Also, eliminate wood from supporting steps or post.
- Do not let moisture accumulate near the foundation. Termites thrive in humid environments, and fixing any dripping faucets or pipelines could help. Air conditioning units will need to be properly maintained.
- Ensure there is no stacked wood against the sides of the property, this does not only give termites shelter, it allows termites to eventually make way to your home through the piled wood.
