Warm, moist spring weather triggers termites to leave their mature colonies in search of food sources, mates, and new areas to colonize. They all emerge from cracks in buildings or holes in the soil at the same time, causing a swarm. After mating, they will land, shed their wings, and start the process of creating a new colony—often in your home! Causing an estimated $5 billion dollars in damages in the United States each year, tiny termites are major pests capable of causing costly damage to your property. An average home suffers $7,900 in damages before termites are even detected! Don’t let this happen to you! Take action today to ensure your home is protected from termites.
Eliminate Food Sources
Remove termite-infested plants, stacked firewood, and rotting landscape timbers from your property and avoid using wood mulch in gardens or areas close to your home’s foundation.
Eliminate High-Moisture Areas
Make necessary repairs to indoor and outdoor water lines, seal your foundation, and repair any roof leaks. Check that your gutters and downspouts are properly diverting water away from your home.
Clear Your Yard
Heavy vegetation growth near your home creates a moist environment that termites love. Cut back your bushes and clean your garden areas regularly. Eliminate heavy brush and any rotting stumps, logs, or tree limbs from your property.
