Prevent Moisture

Termites are attracted to moist spaces. You should regularly check your roof and crawl spaces for water leaks to ensure your house is nice, dry, and unattractive to termites. In your backyard, keep your plants happy and the bugs away by pointing your sprinklers away from your home's foundation and toward your luscious green lawn. If you still struggle with moisture buildup, consider purchasing a dehumidifier. Not only do dehumidifiers help eliminate bugs, but they also help reduce allergens like dust, mold, and mildew from the air. A win-win!

Trim Plants

Plants provide an avenue for termites to secretly make their way into your home. Stop them in their tracks by regularly cutting and raking your grass. Similarly, tall, thick shrubbery can hide telltale signs of infestation. You should keep your shrubs trimmed and placed away from your home’s foundation for the best termite protection.

Remove “Termite Food”

It may not be your snack of choice, but termites enjoy munching on the cellulose found in wood and paper. To stop termites from turning your home into a buffet, get rid of any old tree stumps, lumber, cardboard boxes, or newspaper you have lying around. By removing these, you lessen the available food sources for these pesky insects. To you, it’s just rotting wood, but to a termite, it’s a three-course meal!

Book Regular Inspections

It is important to have your home inspected annually by a professional, such as those at our pest control company. Our pest control experts can help protect your space with a termiticide treatment. Champion’s experienced exterminators can also identify early warning signs of termite infestation that may have gone unnoticed.
