Termite Prevention Tips
When it comes to gaining access to your home, termites are amazingly proficient. The last thing you want to do is make their job easier. Follow this advice for effective termite prevention.

The most important step to termite control is to call a pest management professional to uncover, control and prevent termites. They will inspect the property whether it is residential or commercial and outline steps to keep the building free of termites or to remedy any existing termite problems.

Termites destroy more property annually in the State of Florida alone than all other states combined.
Small holes in wood, crumbling drywall, sagging doors or floors, insect wings and small shelter tubes are some of the more obvious signs of a potential infestation of termites. But even if you don't notice any of these signs, that doesn't necessarily mean termites, or the conditions that invite them, aren't there.

Regular inspections by a licensed pest management professional are the best way to help ensure your home truly is, and remains, free from termites and the damage they cause. Qualified pest management professionals have the training to identify, prevent and treat termite infestations.

They can also explain how to correct any conditions in your home that invite termites. For example:
  • Don't affix wooden trellises to exterior walls.
  • Keep mulch, wood debris, scrap lumber, sawdust and firewood away from your home. If you do keep firewood outside your house during the winter, keep it raised and off the ground.
  • Don't stack, store or bury wood debris adjacent to your home.
  • Trim all shrubs, bushes and other dense greenery away from the foundation of your home. Move mulch away from the foundation as well.
  • Remove infested trees and stumps.
  • Repair leaking faucets and water lines, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Fix leaky roofs and gutters.
  • Don't allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains.
  • Grade soil so that water (including air-conditioning condensation) runs away from foundations.
  • Ventilate crawl spaces and attics to reduce humidity.
  • Remove all wood to soil contact.
  • Cover at least 90% of the soil in crawl spaces with plastic sheeting.
  • Ideally, wood siding, stucco and foam board should be at least six inches away from the ground.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your home's foundation, which may provide a handy access point for termites.
If the inspection reveals termites, your pest management professional can get rid of them and keep them from returning. If it appears that your home is currently free of termites your pest management professional will take preventative action to ensure it stays that way. Learn More About Preventing Termites.
