Common practices for the prevention of termite infestation!

Subterranean termites feed exclusively on wood materials and have strict moisture requirements. With these characteristics in mind, a lot can be done to prevent an infestation by eliminating the food and moisture resources in their environment.

Listed below are a few practical ways to prevent termite infestation by modifying their habitat.

  • Repair structural and plumbing leaks.
  • Pull all mulch and landscaping back at least 6 inches from the foundation.
  • Remove piles of trash and debris from around the home.
  • Keep firewood stacked away from the structure.
  • Make sure downspouts are long enough to direct water away from the foundation.
  • Keep gutters clean.
  • Avoid direct wood to ground contact when building porches or decks.
