How to Prevent Termites

If you don’t know how to prevent termites, then we’ve got the information you need. To protect your most valuable possessions from a termite infestation.

Preventing Termites Starts with Home Construction

Concrete foundations are better than wood, to prevent a termite infestation. However, if you must have a wooden foundation, then keep it at least six inches from the ground. Because it’s important to allow ventilation between soil and wood.

If Your Home is Already Constructed, Then There’s Still Hope

Whenever you are buying a home, consult with Classic Insulation & Pest Control first. We’ll inspect your prospective home, so you can negotiate both treatment and repairs during your purchasing process. Second, schedule on-going inspections to occur every three years. Because you’ll be able to stop or prevent an infestation before it’s too late. Next, you’ll need to schedule ongoing preventative treatments to occur quarterly. Especially if you’ve previously suffered from a termite infestation. Finally, it’s important to understand land development displaces termites. Whenever this happens, they find nearby buildings to both occupy and destroy.

How to Prevent Termites Before They Show Up

Pestworld shares termite prevention tips.

Either eliminate or reduce moisture in and around your home.
Keep firewood at least 20 feet away from your home.
Repair not only leaky faucets but also any other leaking pipes, either in or around your home.
Make sure to also repair any rotting home materials. For instance, rotting shingles.
Replace both damaged and worn weather stripping, plus loose mortar around basement foundations and windows.
Clean not only your gutters but also spouts, to keep your home’s foundation as dry as possible. Divert water away from your foundation.
Routinely inspect your home’s foundation for signs of mud tubes. Also, look for both bubbling paint and hollow wood.
Keep a close eye on all your exterior wood, so you can notice any signs of change. Then, report them to your pest control professional during routine maintenance.
Keep mulch and soil two feet away from your home’s foundation.
Since wood-boring insect damage is not covered by insurance policies, schedule regular inspections.
