Termites can cause serious damage to your home – and even financial ruin. Before an infestation gets out of control, be proactive and take these simple steps to prevent a termite infestation:
Contact a pest control service for regular inspections and treatment as a precaution.
Inspect all wood in your home – make sure to check hidden areas like crawl spaces and attics.
Reduce humidity in the home – often the cause of termite infestations.
Keep your lawn healthy and well maintained. Termites enjoy attacking unhealthy plants and grasses.
