Having routine termite inspections and installing termite baiting system around your home can help to reduce termite infestations. However, every homeowner plays a major role in reducing the risks of termites from their homes. Here are a few tips to help you reduce termite attacks to your home.

 

Reduce Moisture

One of the major contributors to many termite infestations is moisture. Termites love moisture and they will thrive where there is lots of moisture. This is because termites need their bodies to be moisturized for them to survive. Therefore, you should take the time to eliminate moisture from your home by fixing any leaking pipes and ensuring groundwater drainage is flowing away from your house. Pest control Newcastle companies can help you know the areas to eliminate moisture from your home.

 

Remove Any Access Points

Termites gain entry to your home through cracks and holes. Therefore, you should seal any holes or cracks to eliminate access points for termites. You can achieve this by also cutting any overgrown branches touching the roof of your home. Branches may serve as a pathways that leads termites to your home. Inquire from commercial pest control Australia firms about any other access points that you can eliminate to keep termites off your home.

 

Eliminate Potential Food Sources

Termites will thrive in areas where they can find food sources easily. Therefore, when you eliminate or reduce their food sources, you reduce the chances of them attacking your home. The common food for termites is cardboard and wood. This is why you should avoid wood-to-ground contact since it is the entry point for termites to enter into your house. You can avoid the entry of termites by avoiding storing wood or cardboards around the house. You should store your wood and cardboards away from the ground and away from your main house to prevent termite infestation.

 

If you want to ensure your home is free from termites, ensure that you get a routine inspection. You should also get a pre purchase termite inspection if you are planning to buy a new home. This way, any signs of termites in your home will be eliminated within the shortest time possible and you will enjoy living a termite-free home.
