How To Prevent Termite Infestations In The Summertime

Posted on June 10th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Summers in the Northeast are known for two things–heat and humidity! Since termites are drawn to warm and humid environments, it is no wonder why they can become a problem for homeowners during this time of the year. Below are some proactive steps you can take to avoid a termite infestation altogether. 

Check The Foundation Of Your Home

Termites tend to congregate near the foundation of the home. Termite damage in this area can compromise the structural integrity of your house. That is why it is so important to check the foundation of your home for termite damage in the warm summer months ahead. 

Decrease The Humidity

There is no way to beat around the bush–termites love humidity! That being said, remember to reduce the amount of humidity in your house. You can accomplish this by making sure that your crawl spaces have ample ventilation. 

Get Rid Of Moisture Sites

Getting rid of the moisture sites in your home is a step in the right direction when it comes to keeping termites at bay. Be sure to have gutters and downspouts installed facing away from your house. This will allow the foundation of your home to remain free of moisture.
