Termites infestation is potentially one of the most damaging infestations to your home, and cause considerable and costly damage each year to the homeowners who don’t take proactive steps in preventing termite infestation and damage.

USE TREATED WOOD AND REMOVE TERMITE ATTRACTANTS

Termites eat, live near, and are attracted to wood debris and materials containing cellulose. If you are going to be using these materials for firewood, landscaping, or other purposes, choose products which have been treated for termite protection, so they won’t consider this wood a source of food. Remove, or carefully store, cellulose based materials and wood from around the perimeter of your home to reduce the likelihood of attracting termites. 

REDUCE HUMIDITY

Termites are attracted to moisture and high levels of humidity, so make sure all areas of your home, including crawlspaces under floors, are well ventilated. Fans are available that help to keep sub-floors dry. Although reducing humidity can be difficult in some climates, preventive termite solutions is easier than treatment for termite control.

USE BAIT TO SPOT TERMITES

If you have removed the easy availability of termite bait materials from your home, placing bait stations around the rest of the property will help keep you informed of the arrival of termites near your home. This termite protection method may be able to help you tell if termites are coming, and this is a good step to help ensure your home is protected. If you find termites in your traps, you may want to re-examine your home for materials that will attract termites.

REDUCE HUMIDITY BARRIER

Barrier methods are one of the most successful ways of termite protection, and will help prevent infestation by keeping them from coming into your home. Chemical barriers are termite protection systems which treat the soil, concrete, wood and other materials in your home to make them inedible to termites. Physical barriers are also available, and are designed to give your home a layer of termite protection which is inedible to termites that they are unable to cross. Call our team of expert professionals to learn more about the most effective tips for termite protection and prevention in Sydney or to protect your home or business from any other pest issues such as bed bug control, cockroach removal or any other pest & vermin control services in Sydney and its surrounding localities.
