5 Tips to Keep Your House Free of Termites This Season | HiTech Termite Control

The spring season in the US is officially over, and summer has set in. However, there is still some time left before those humid and sweaty days. In most states in the country, the weather is always pleasant and sometimes a little moist. This is the time when thousands of pesky intruders silently invade your home.

Here we are talking about termites that swarm the cities and get on to destroying the wooden structure, furniture, or other stuff to extract cellulose, their primary food source.

During this time of lockdown, you have time and opportunity to keep your home termite-free this season. In this post, we have listed five tips that will help you get rid of termites.

Here are the five tips:

1.   Clean up the Pile of Debris

Throughout the year, a lot of junk may have piled up all around your home. There could be piles of leaves, old furniture, or other wooden stuff that attract termites. These tiny insects love debris, and a little bit of additional moisture make it perfect for them to infest.

Besides dead wood and leftover leaves, overgrown grasses in your house are c to thrive. Clearing out the debris will keep off termites and save your home.

2.   Seal the Cracks in Walls, Doors, Windows, and Ceilings

 As the weather gets warmer and humid, termites look for openings or cracks in walls, doors, windows, ceilings, and other places. Once the termites arrive at the foundation of your home, they will feed on it and build their colony. During your annual house maintenance, keep in mind to seal those vulnerable areas to prevent termite intrusion.

3.   Check All the Damp or Moist Areas at Home

Damp or moist places are happy hunting grounds for termites. Look around your house for a puddle in your backyard, stuffed gutter, or wet places if there is a basement. Termites avoid dry spots and only seek damp areas for food sources and breeding. Try to make sure that areas around your home do not remain moist for long.

4.   Remove Unused Cardboard Boxes

While decluttering your house, you may often dump old cardboard boxes in your garage, attic, or basement. If those boxes get moist, they become nesting places for termites. This is why, during cleanups, remove all the cardboard boxes from your home altogether. You can give away the boxes with other usable items, and throw away into a recycle bin.

5.   Inspect Your Bedrooms, Kitchen, and Cabinets

Regular inspection of your home is a good idea to find the signs of termites. You can check your bedrooms, kitchen, cabinets, and other places with wooden material to spot an infestation. If you find the inspection work too overwhelming, contact a reputable termite control services company for a free inspection. An experienced technician will identify termite-infested areas in no time.
