Battling Termites At Home

If there are things that need serious consideration at home, one would be to consider steps in making your home termite-free.

To look for warning signs, try examining your foundation and look for a pencil-size mud tubes, where termites crawl through to get inside woods into your home. Also check on walls and look for cracked or bubbling paint, bulges or spots that sound hollow when tapped.

If you think you saw warning signs, call a pest control expert to check and identify the signs. Most commonly, the best treatments are EPA-approved termiticide.

Prevent them from coming back by avoiding moisture build up and keeping your basement well ventilated, fixing leaks and maintaining clear gutters.
