Termites play an integral role within our environment, but when they start invading your home, they turn out to be one of the most hated enemies. Well, there is a solution for every problem. Likewise, there are certain termite control practices that can be implemented to prevent the infestation from turning into a nightmare. They are as follows:
Get Rid Of Moisture:
Moisture is one of the major factors that attract termites into your home, so take necessary steps to eliminate excess moisture from your home. You may use a dehumidifier or switch on the air conditioner periodically to maintain a cool temperature and remove excess moistness from the air indoors.
Fix The Leaks:
Fix and seal all the leakages promptly as decayed and moisture-laden walls serve as a perfect host for the termites. Carry out frequent inspection of your basements and corners of your house as these are the first ones to invite pests.
Reduce Food Sources:
Termites can make an easy trip to the inside of your home from external wood and siding to internal wood. So, make sure that you have stored all the wood piles at least 25 feet away from your house. Even the mulch piles, firewood, tree stump and nature’s wood pile should be thrown away to prevent termites from making their way into your home.
Declutter Your House:
Useless papers, old magazines, cardboards and newspapers can provide a great environment for termites to thrive, so it is important to declutter your house on a regular basis. Also, if you have found termite infestation in any of your rooms, don’t move any stuff from that room to other parts of your house. This helps prevent the further spread of the infestation.
Carry Out Termite Inspection:
If you suspect that your property is vulnerable to termite attack, call the professional pest terminators to carry out a termite inspection. They will check every nook and corner of your home, and come up with a bespoke termite treatment plan to eradicate the infestation.
