Tip 1: Prevent Entry by Eliminating Termite Infestation Conditions

Termites can cause major damage to your home if left unchecked. Here are a few tips to help prevent termite infestation in your house. First, eliminate any wood debris or mulch that is touching your home’s foundation. Termites look for cellulose to feed on and will travel through mulch or wood to reach your home. Keep mulch at least 6 inches away from all parts of the foundation. Also, repair any cracks or holes in your foundation, as these provide entry points for termites. Make sure exterior walls have no cracks or crevices. Caulk and seal any openings with a waterproof sealant. Remove any dead trees or tree stumps from your yard, as these attract termites. Finally, divert water away from your home’s foundation with properly functioning gutters, downspouts, and proper grading. Standing water nearby can allow termites easier access. Following these preventative measures will help discourage termites from invading your home. Be diligent in maintaining your home’s exterior and you can avoid a termite infestation.
