Initial actions of termite control

There are steps you can take to help decrease the chances of invaders settling on your property are:

  • Removing potential food sources.
  • Eliminating moisture problems, like moisture buildup, in and around your home.
  • Consider doing pest inspection regularly by hiring licensed termite inspector from a reputable pest control company. Pre-purchase termite inspections of a home or real estate helps identify damaged structures and invest on effective measures to curb future infestation.

  • Note:

    Though this might seem counter-intuitive, it’s best to let termites be if you find them on your property. If shaken up or disturbed, termites’ survival instincts will prompt them to abandon the area, which may initially seem like a good thing. However, instead of departing completely, they will simply move to other areas in the building, causing more damage. If you find termites in or around your premises, it’s essential that you do NOT disturb them and promptly contact us to get professional assistance.

    Taking these steps will help you minimize your chances of accidentally attracting these home-wreckers. However, there is no substitute for the effective termite control a trained specialist can deliver.
