3 Tips for Preventing Termites From Entering Your Home, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

Of the many pests, which can infiltrate your home, few are more problematic than termites. If left unchecked, these insects can quickly eat away at wood and cellulose, causing expensive damage to your house. As the team at AAA Termite & Pest Control Inc. in Kaneohe, HI, explains, however, taking a few preventative measures can help you avoid these infestations altogether.

Top 3 Tips for Keeping Termites Out of Your House

1. Take Care of Repairs

Broken roof tiles and damaged siding create easy opportunities for termites to get into your house. As such, you shouldn’t delay taking care of any needed repairs for these areas or other exterior portions of your home. This is especially true in humid areas where dampness can quickly penetrate damaged areas, making them even more attractive to termites. The sooner you take care of these repairs, the less likely these pests can get into your home in the first place.

2. Outdoor Care

termitesRotting tree stumps, mulch, and old cardboard boxes can all be very attractive to termites. Leaving a tree stump in your yard or storing old cardboard boxes in your garage serves as an open invitation for these pests to come and dine. When termites gain access to your yard or garage, it’s only a matter of time before they get inside. Throwing out old cardboard and removing old stumps can go a long way in protecting your home.

3. Chemical Treatments

One of the best ways to prevent an infestation is to invest in a professional termite treatment. Specially formulated chemicals are designed to repel termites and other pests while remaining safe for your family. These chemical treatments get into hard-to-reach areas, effectively blocking termites from ever getting inside.
