The Best Way To Deal With Termites On Your Monmouth County Property
April 20, 2021
Did you know that termites are estimated to create billions of dollars in damage throughout the U.S. each year? To make matters worse, the majority of these costly problems are not covered by home or business insurance policies. The majority of termites in this region are subterranean, meaning they build underground nests. Although they nest underground, these critters identify food sources that are often well-above ground and create small mud tubes or tunnels that allow for safe passage.
The Pitfalls Of Do-It-Yourself Home Treatment Options For Termites
One of the most commonly made mistakes that property owners make is attempting do-it-yourself solutions for eliminating infestations of termites. The first reason why this is not recommended is that termites typically eat wooden structures from within. This means that the property owner is unable to notice that a problem exists for months—or even years! Here, a professional exterminator is more likely to eliminate the problem quickly before more costly structural problems develop.
Many property owners will try store-bought sprays, granular formulas, powders, and other options that tend to be ineffective. Many of these products might also contain chemical agents that might be harmful to you, your family, pets, etc.
Tips For Preventing Termites
Some of the best ways to prevent these pests include:
Prevent the foundation of the home from having any direct contract with the soil by creating a simple barrier, such as with stone or aluminum.
Keep water and moisture away from the home by properly maintaining gutter systems, and repairing leaking spigots.
Relocate firewood storage areas to places away from the home, remove fallen trees from the yard, and keep shrubs trimmed away from the structure.
Consider using pine needles, or another alternative to mulch.
Identify and fill any cracks or holes along the base of the home to prevent entry.
