March is the peak of termite swarming season. 🐛
They may not be fun to think about, but termites can seriously damage your home’s integrity. Here are some pro-sourced tips to prevent an infestation:
1️⃣ Don’t let wood touch the soil. Keep wooden siding and door frames above the ground.
2️⃣ Keep your foundation dry. Check for leaks, and make sure your downspouts are directed away from the foundation.
3️⃣ Avoid feeding the termites. Don’t stack firewood against your house; clear vines, stumps, and roots away from your foundation.
4️⃣ Garden strategically. Keep a safe distance between shrubs and walls, keep grass cut short, and replace mulch near your home with stone or gravel.
5️⃣ Seal cracks and crevices. Close off any exterior entry points with caulk or foam sealant.
