Preventative Measures

If you’ve had a termite problem in the past, and feel they may return, or you are interested in preventative measures, here are a few tips to help keep your home free from termites:

  • -Close off any cracks, crevices, or breakage in your home’s foundation
  • -Keep any firewood stored several yards away from your home
  • -Keep your property clear of rotting vegetation or excessive moisture
  • -Remove and repair any water-damaged wood in your home or property

To keep your home safe from termites, you should also be aware of what food sources they are attracted to. Food sources for termites include: cabinetry, decks, lawn furniture, floors, ceilings, windowsills, posts, siding, and any other wood construction in your home or property.

Damp wood is especially dangerous, not only because of how attracted termites are to it but also because of how quickly they can go through it. The more moist the wood is, the easier it is to consume, making it more and more weak very rapidly.
