How to Prevent Termites
Although termites are year-round pests, every spring they’ll emerge in search of a new structure to invade. These tiny pests can cause severe damage to your home, impacting its structural integrity. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to help avoid an unwanted termite infestation.
Termites, especially subterranean termites are attracted to moisture. Keep your foundation and home dry by ensuring your gutters work properly, your siding and windows are in good condition, and your sprinklers are not hitting your home.
Keep Firewood Away From Your Home
While it may be convenient to store firewood up against your home, it increases the risk of termites. Instead, store your firewood at least 20 feet away from your home and on a raised structure, like bricks for example. Then, cover the firewood with a tarp to help keep the wood dry.
Consider a Mulch Alternative
Many homeowners use mulch to improve their curb appeal and provide health benefits to their plants, unfortunately, termites are attracted to mulch for its moisture-retaining properties. Consider stone as a landscaping material instead.
Fill Holes and Cracks
Termites, like most pests, will search for any weak points in your home. In fact, many can gain entry through cracks in your foundation. You’ll want to seal any cracks and holes you see to help keep termites out.
