Termite Prevention Tips

Preventing Termites is a daunting task but knowing how to prevent infestation starts with a few basic tactics:

  • Keep all wooden parts of the house foundation at least 6 inches above the soil.
  • Keep mulch levels several inches below the siding and wooden parts of the structure.
  • Avoid or minimize use of wood mulch next to the foundation.
  • Remove dead trees, stumps, and roots near the structure.
  • Never store firewood, lumber, or paper against the foundation or in the crawl space.
  • Remove wood debris and form boards.
  • Divert lawn sprinklers and irrigation water away from the foundation.
  • Promptly repair leaking faucets, water pipes, and air conditioning units
  • Remove any vegetation covering vents. 
  • Do not build flower planters against the house. 
  • Regularly inspect cracks or joints in concrete slabs for evidence of termites.
