Long Island and New York Termite Season–Get Ready Now

Long Island and New York termite season officially starts when these insects begin swarming, but don’t wait until you see clouds of termites taking wing. Take a few steps now while the ground is still frozen and the wind is still biting cold to ensure that termites don’t invade your home.

  • Remove termite food by getting rid of wood near your home. Keep firewood outside and far from your home. Remove dead trees and stumps. Prune vegetation to make sure no branches are touching your house. If you use wood mulch, keep it away from your foundation—and consider a rubber mulch alternative around your house.
  • Inspect for moisture in and around the foundation of your home. Divert rain run-off, air conditioner condensation and extend downspouts. Remove debris that can trap moisture.
  • Inspect, inspect, inspect! A problem caught early is a problem solved inexpensively. The small cost of an annual spring inspection is insurance that pays for itself. Prevent major structural damage before it starts. Schedule an appointment now [link to appointment page]
