Your Best Defense Against Termites
Reduce Humidity and Moisture – Termites tend to be attracted to moist areas of wood near the foundation of a home. This is why you want to make sure that you are diverting water away from the foundation of your home with a quality gutter system.
Move Firewood Away From Home – Often times termites can be brought into a home because they were hiding out on pieces of firewood. It is recommended you never store firewood against the foundation of your home as this could be how they are infiltrating your home’s structure.
Eliminate Mulch From Landscaping – Termites are usually attracted to mulch because of its moisture-retaining properties. If you have incorporated mulched areas into your landscaping, you should consider swapping this material out for some rock or stone gravel.
