Tips for Homeowners
Inspect perimeter of a home for rotting wood and mud tubes.
Avoid water accumulation near the home's foundation.
Repair any roof or pluming leaks as soon as possible. These leaks can allow termites to survive above ground in a house.
Keep mulch at least 12 inches from the foundation.
Eliminate any wood-to-soil contact around your foundation and remove wood debris near your home.
Store firewood away from your home.
Use mesh screens on all windows and doors, as well as in ventilation openings for attics and crawl spaces.
Many homeowners are unaware of the damage caused by termites until they either see outward visual damage to their home or notice insect wings by windows and doorways. Homeowners should be particularly aware that termite activity increases during the months of March through June.
Because termites cause $5 billion in property damage every year, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) urges homeowners to take action. Termite damage is typically not covered by homeowners’ insurance and can quickly add up to a hefty expense to repair structural damage.
