How to Prevent a Termite Infestation

1. Learn if you are vulnerable to drywood termites
Drywood termite infestations are most prevalent in the southern coastal areas of the United States. As depicted in the map above, the southern United States is very susceptible to drywood termite infestations.

2. Prevent infestations by keeping your property clean
Trim all dense greenery so nothing is touching the side of your home or structure.
Remove all lumber, tree stumps, and other kinds of loose wood from the perimeter of your home. Keep any firewood raised off of the ground and protected from water.
Seal any cracks and holes in your structure to prevent access points for termites.

3. Treat with termiticides
Liquid termiticides create a barrier around the perimeter of buildings, preventing termites from getting in as well as preventing termites from getting to the soil in which they need to survive. Learn more about our effective sprays by giving us a call today.
