How To Prevent Termites From Infesting Your Home

Posted on May 6th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

A termite infestation can put a lot of stress on a homeowner. This is especially true if termite damage is not covered by your homeowners’ insurance. Below are some steps you can take to prevent a termite infestation at home.

Complete Repairs

It is human nature to procrastinate when it comes to finally completing those much-needed repairs around the house. However, not tending to these repairs can leave your house vulnerable to termites. Repairing rotted roof shingles and replacing weatherstripping are things you can do to deter termites from entering your home in the first place.

Eliminate Moisture

Termites are drawn to moisture sites. That being said, it is important to eliminate any moisture sites in an effort to keep your home dry. You can accomplish this by fixing leaky plumbing fixtures or outdoor air conditioning units.

Check Exterior Areas of Wood

It is no secret that termites love to chomp on wood! That is why it is so vital to inspect wooden door frames and windows for signs of termite damage. In addition, be sure to store firewood 5 inches off of the ground and 20 feet away from your home.
