Remove Termite Attractants
Termites love to eat wood and plant based materiel. Some of the most common overlooked attractants are the materials chosen in the landscaping especially in and around gardens. It you do not select materials that are treated to prevent termites you may be providing a termite feast. Look for and remove wood debris, old stumps and other plant debris. Store firewood elevated from earth or in bins. Look for dead or diseased trees that may harbor a colony. Be aware of what’s just over the property line on your neighbor’s adjacent property. Termites know no boundaries.
Reducing Moisture and Humidity
Termites, like most living creatures, need a source of moisture/water. Taking steps to reduce the moisture and humidity in your and around your home or business is a great method of discouraging termites from making a home on your property. Installing fans in baths is a must, fans in the crawls spaces can also be helpful. Check for leaks in plumbing around and below sinks, tubs and toilets. Assure that outdoor water features are properly lined. It is easier and less costly to control infestation with preventative than treatment.
See Them Coming
After your home or business is free of termites, a helpful tool of prevention is setting termite monitor around the perimeter. When termites show up in the monitor stations, it is time to survey the entire property for things that may attract termites. Specifically, look for sources of termite food, like wood chips, or other plant debris. Look for sources of water: around outdoor water features, outdoor taps, check for leaks around or under all sinks, tubs and toilets. Knowing they are coming puts you a step ahead in preventing an infestation.
