A termite infestation can leave you with costly, time-consuming repairs, but preventative measures and quick action can keep your home safe from damage. Here is our ultimate guide to termite control to protect your home from damage.
Take Preventative Measures
While we recommend professional treatment to ensure that termite colonies and other pest infestations are properly eliminated, there are a few preventative measures that you as a homeowner can take. First and foremost, remove a termite’s food source. This may include old tree stumps or wood piles where termites may flock to. You also have the option of natural or chemical prevention, but both have their risks. Natural methods may not perform as effectively or quickly as chemical ones, but you can damage your home or put your pets and family at risk if chemical solutions are used improperly. If you decided to treat the problem yourself, do extensive research and proceed with caution.
Know the Signs of Infestation
What are signs that can alert you to a termite infestation in your home? Signs on the interior of your home may include bubbled paint, tracks in wooden paneling or furniture, or piles of discarded wings. Noticeable exterior signs include mud tubes that lead from the ground to a wood source and flying termite swarms. It is important to contact professional help immediately as soon as you spot signs of infestation.
