While we are experiencing a long and cold winter across the country, it feels as though spring can’t come soon enough! Just keep in mind when the weather starts to warm, people may also start to see an unwelcome sign that spring has sprung – the presence of flying termites and bugs.
Emergence of Termites
Spring is the time of year when termites emerge for mating season to create their colonies. Termites can be devastating to a home! They can chew through wood, and flooring, most often undetected.
A professional pest control expert needs to conduct a thorough inspection and set up, with a comprehensive treatment plan in order to get rid of these pests.
Reduce moisture within the house where possible. Termites need moisture to survive. Eliminate moisture from in and around your home to help keep termites in check. Make sure water does not pool around the foundation of your home or on your roof.
Home repair is another important check. Seal all cracks, crevices, and joints in your exterior wood to prevent entry. Make sure to repair damaged roof shingles, back operations of weak bones of a base of the home.
Inspection and Prevention
Routinely inspect the foundation of a home for signs of mud tubes, which are used by termites to reach a food source.
