Termite Control: Prevention is Key
The best way to actively prevent termites at your commercial or residential building is to make your structure less attractive to termites. Though these may seem like a difficult task to accomplish, it is relatively easy when you understand what these insects require to survive. Below, we have listed some helpful tips to keep termites at bay and ensure that your property remains termite-free no matter the season.
Termites require ample moisture to survive and will die if exposed to sunlight or open air for more than a few minutes. Eliminating excess moisture in and around your property, like around your foundation or on your roof, will take away termite's life source, effectively killing them off in one fell swoop. It is also smart to have any plumbing leaks fixed, so the infestation does not find its way under your property's foundation.
Seal gaps around water and gas lines and be sure to pay attention to any wood-to-ground contact around your property. This contact is a common entry-point for subterranean termites and is where many of these infestations begin.
Termites feed on any type of cellulose material they can get their jaws on. That's why it's vital to rid your property of mulch, firewood, or wood siding that comes in contact with the ground if you live in an area that is prone to termite infestations.
If you are building a home or adding onto your property, be sure to check the lumber for any signs of termite infestation. Termites are commonly distributed by human activity and will invade lumber or other building materials unbeknownst to builders and property owners alike.
If your home or business has a crawlspace, make sure it has proper ventilation and an efficient vapor barrier to help in reducing moisture from reaching the subfloor and floor joists.
Homeowners' insurance policies do not often cover wood boring insect damage, so it’s best to have annual inspections done at your California property to ensure no unwanted surprises pop up. Infestations can become costly very quickly, which is why prevention is always your best bet when it comes to deterring termites.
