- Fix Your Leaks
Leaks in and around your home can be cause for concern when it comes to termites. Termites enjoy damp wood and can often enter a home through a leak hole. You should fix any leaks you find in your roof and in the walls of your home. You should scour all areas of your home, including pipes and heavy water areas for leaks. You may see brownish stains on your ceiling where a leak resides, or you may hear water dripping inside of your walls.
- Seal All Holes
Holes and crevices within your home can be easy points of access for termites and other critters to enter your home. You should find these holes and cracks within your home and fill them with wood filler, foam or other substances made for this use. If the material that the hole is found in is damaged, it should be completely replaced. After all, a patch will only go so far.
- Remove Infested Landscaping
It is important to remove all trees and other shrubbery that are infected with termites. You should do a thorough check of all your landscaping to look for signs of termites and then terminate if need be. Termites an easily move from your tree to your roof and into your home if you are not careful.
- Watch Your Firewood
If you use firewood during the winter, you should watch your stacks for signs of termite damage. You should also store your firewood away from your home and off the ground.
