Five Tips to Avoid Termite Infestations

Posted on 10 September, 2012 at 22:15
When termites infest your home, most people know a treatment is essential.  But are there ways to prevent infestations in the first place?  Here are a few tips to keep those wood-demolishing pests from invading your home:
  1. Stack and store firewood and lumber away from the house. 
  2. Do not place wood directly onto the ground.
  3. When utilizing mulch in flower beds, place plastic sheeting down before spreading mulch.  This will keep the wood chips from direct contact with the ground.
  4. Limit the amount of moisture around the outside.  Install gutters to detour rain water and minimize watering in flower beds.
  5. Schedule annual termite inspections.
Take special note when moving wood, lumber and mulch.  If you discover termites, it doesn't necessarily mean your home has been infested.  It does mean it's time for a termite inspection by a licensed professional.
