First thing to kow is that termites are attracted by moist soil. Look at your gutters and downspouts, make sure that water is directed away from you house. Also, try keeping the soil around the foundation of your home as dry as possible. Real termite prevention begins with maintenance.
Look around the outside of the home. There should be no firewood stacks, stumps, or yard debris ever near your house. Also, keep mulch, tree limbs and bushes from touching your house for good termite prevention. Give the termites less steps to get to you house.
The next part to prevent termites is to inspect your home and the surrounding area for termites. Things to look for are damaged areas of fence or wood, and for tubes of dirt coming up the sides of your house. Catching termites as soon as possible before they are able to do damage to your home is important.
If you think your termite prevention has failed and you have an infestation call a professional immediately. They can determine the best course of action to get rid of the termites as soon as possible.
