Termite Prevention

Termites can seriously damage your home, and you want to keep this from happening if at all possible. One of the best pieces of advice we can give you for termite prevention is being able to recognize the signs of an infestation in your home. This way, you can stop an infestation before it gets out of hand.

When it comes to termite prevention, here are some of the most common signs that indicate you could have an infestation at your home:

  • Termites have small, thin, and paper-like wings. If you keep finding these wings on window sills, near baseboards, and in piles other places around your home, you could have a termite problem.
  • Termites often build a series of mud tunnels to easily access the interior of a home. If you notice mud tubes running across bare concrete or masonry throughout your property, termites may have started to infiltrate your home.
  • You could have termites if paint or wood surfaces throughout your home are “bubbled,” cool to the touch, or distorted in any way.
  • If wooden building parts or structures throughout your home have started to sag unexpectedly and the cause is not identifiable, termites may be to blame.
