When you hear the word “termites”, the first thing you think is that they are destroying the wood in your home, but this is not the only thing that they are looking for when invading your home. They also need moisture and shelter for it to be appealing. This means that your job is to deny them access to those three items as much as possible.
Termite problems often go unnoticed until there has already been significant damage done to the structure, and this will mean costly repairs. This is why it is important to make sure your home and its surroundings aren’t inviting.
If you have exposed wood in your home, it should not be in direct contact with the dirt, since this will allow the termites easy access.
If you have a wood-burning stove or a fireplace, don’t store wood piled up against your home, since this will give the termites a first stop in their invasion.
