Keep-Home-Termite-Free

Termite Prevention: Top Tips

Termites are nasty little creatures which can wreck your home very quickly. Many people call them the „silent destroyers.“ It is because they act quietly, secretly, undercover, and you may not even notice the infestation before it is too late. They feed on organic, cellulose-based plant material and many houses are completely built of wood. Therefore, they are a perfect source of food for termites.

There are thousands of species of termites which thrive in damp, dry or subterranean wood. Scientifically, they are labeled as detrivores, because they feed on dead material like plants and trees. Cellulose provides them energy and nutrients. Most feed on dead wood, but there are types of termites which feed on living plants.

Keeping your home termite-free is crucial if you want to avoid structural damage and deterioration. Since termites do their business silently, sometimes it is very hard to spot them. And, often, it can be too late to react, and repairs can be very costly. There are several things you can do to prevent termite infestations. It boils down to two major processes: identifying termite colonies and treating them and preventing termites from entering your house.

Prevention tips

To avoid termite attacks, you should contact a termite expert who will, in regular periods of time, inspect your home and check for possible invasions and identify possible threats. Also, you should cooperate with the expert so that spots with any excess moisture are identified. You should check for places where the wooden parts of the house come into contact with the ground. The expert will advise on typical preventive methods like bait and monitoring systems, direct treatment of the wooden structure and so on.

Preventing subterranean termite invasions

Termites-invasionsYou should try to identify all possible points of entry. For example, gaps around water pipelines and gas lines are a perfect gate for termites. Seal these gaps so the critters cannot gain access. Subterranean termites love the places where wood meets the ground. Try to have as little of these contact points as possible. Besides this, you should treat all these areas with termiticide.

Furthermore, try to remove any food source termites can find. Any cellulose material you have sitting around your house, outhouses or backyard should go straight to waste. Take care that wood is not in direct contact with the ground. Also, reduce moisture as much as you can and make sure that there is no water pooling, leaky plumbings or faulty gutters.

Preventing dry wood termite invasions

Dry-wood-termiteTreat any cracks in exterior dry wood with appropriate sealants. All cracks, joints, crevices and holes need to be tightly sealed. A good trick is to regularly paint your home because paint seals up the tiniest of holes. If you find any dead wood in your yard, remove it from the premises, so the termites have no food sources. Finally, keep an eye out for possible invasions by regular inspection all the wooden parts of your homes’ structure. Wood shingles are an especially vulnerable part of your home. Consult an expert for ways how to protect your roofing because it can be a highway for termites.

Turmeric

It is a delicious root which you can use in many kinds of meals. But the good taste we enjoy does not mean insects love it too. Ants and many other pests simply hate turmeric and will keep away from it. Find yourself some powdered turmeric and sprinkle it around the base of the plants you want to protect. You can also dilute the powder in some water and spray it on the plants.

Eggshells

EggshellsIt might sound weird, but slugs and snails and other slimy, unwanted guests will keep away from eggshells. Break them up and toss them around your garden and slugs will stay away because they will not want to crawl on top of the sharp edges of crushed egg shells.
