They may be small, but termites are a big problem. They can cause substantial issues, including structural damage to your home. Prevention is important when it comes to handling termites around your home. Below are some of the best things you can do to protect your home from termites.
- Prevent moisture around your home’s foundation. A moist foundation caused by improper drainage or neglecting to fix water damage is the ideal environment for termites. You don’t want to provide these pests with the perfect place to nest and repopulate, so be sure to make protecting your home from attracting moisture a top priority.
- Keep wood and lumber away from the home. Firewood, lumber, and other wood is food for termites, and the closer it is to your home, the more likely it is for them to search your home for more food. The best way to store cellulose products like firewood and lumber is away from your home and several feet off the ground.
- Hire termite control as soon as you believe you have a problem. Sometimes, even despite your best efforts, termites can infiltrate your home and cause issues. If this is the case, you shouldn’t wait to call our termite control experts. Ignoring a problem only makes it worse, and a termite infestation is no exception. Hiring termite control services sooner rather than later if you notice signs of these pests around your home is crucial for preventing and minimizing damage.
