Termites cause more damage to homes than fires, floods, and storms. Home owners insurance does not protect against termite damage so fast, and immediate termite control is your best defense against termite damage.
All homes are vulnerable to termites, if not protected. Termite infestation can go unnoticed by homeowners until a large amount of damage has already been done. Termites can enter your home through cracks as small as 1/64” ( roof vents, siding, window joints).

- Take out all old tree stumps, roots, and any decaying wood that is lying around your property.
- Remove any old form boards, grade stakes, etc., that were left in place after the home was built.
- Make sure there is no wood contact with the soil. All outside woodwork should be at least 6 inches above the ground, and beams in crawl spaces at least 18 inches above ground to provide ample space to make future inspections.
- Always repair or plug up any cracks in the masonry or concrete on your foundation; make sure there are no entry points into your attic to keep drywood termites out.
- Make sure your landscape plants and irrigation systems are no closer than 2 ft. from the foundation; Use mulch sparingly.
- Check all plumbing, gutters, downspouts and air conditioning units. Make any necessary repairs or replace old leaky equipment. Moisture and leaks are a primary cause of subterranean termites.
- Make sure shrubs and landscaping plants do not block ventilation openings. Foundation ventilation openings should be designed to prevent dead air pockets, they should be large enough to assure frequent changes of air.
- If you have wood fencing or deck posts that are in contact with the soil, all wood should be commercially pressure treated.
- Avoid overwatering your lawn and causing moisture build up. When you water be careful you do not get stucco or wood siding wet.
