How to prevent termite damage
Termites are simple, destructive creatures. They only need three things to thrive: food, moisture, and shelter.
To keep subterranean termites from entering and damaging your home, clear the perimeter of your home of any wood, brush, and moisture.
- Keep logs stacked away from your house.
- Don’t lay mulch against the edge of your home’s foundation.
- Repair any leaks in your roof or basement to prevent water damage and moisture from seeping into the wood or pooling in an unfinished basement.
- Keep gutters clean and make sure they drain away from your foundation.
Pest control professionals can establish a defensive barrier around your home with a termite liquid treatment. This liquid insecticide is applied to the soil beneath concrete floors and along the entire perimeter of your property’s foundation. The product is safe for children and pets, both interior and exterior, and costs significantly less than termite damage repair.
