  • New Construction – If you are building a new home or commercial building, there are several measures you can take to help with termite prevention and protection for many years to come. One option is to have your builders create a concrete foundation instead of a wood foundation, so termites do not have a constant food source. You may also ask your builder to create the structure of your home or office space with ventilation between any wood and soil. Using metal against any of the wood structures of your new home or office will also deter termites from colonizing there.
  • Attention to Prevention – If you are in a home or office that has already been built, make sure to keep your vent space free from plants and other smaller objects. Signs of a termite infestation include dead bugs and mud tubes or tunnels where they have been feeding or creating colonies. You can fill openings with caulk, grout, or cement to keep termites from entering.
