Termite prevention

Termites are very efficient at gaining access into your home.  To reduce your chances of a termite infestation, try the following steps:

  • Seal all cracks and holes in the foundation of your home. This yields one less access point for the termites
  • Ventilate your crawl spaces and attics to reduce the humidity levels
  • Keep mulch, scrap lumber, sawdust, and firewood away from your home, as termites can be lurking in this material
  • Remove any infested stumps from the general vicinity of your home
  • Keep gutters clean of leaves and other debris
  • Fix leaky gutters and spots on the roof. Termites love the moisture.
  • Schedule regular check-ups with a termite or pest professional.
