How to prepare for Termite Swarm Season

Termites are some of the worst pests that can invade a home. Not only do they cause extensive damage to the outside by eating away at trees, but they can also wreak havoc inside the home by gnawing away at the property’s foundations and supporting elements. Anything made of wood is in danger, including furniture, floors, beams, ceilings and window frames. In order to avoid a potential disaster, homeowners are strongly urged to prepare for termite swarm season.

Limit Your Indoor Water Damage

In order to prepare proactively, make sure that you repair any and all water leaks around your property. Not only can all types of moisture damage issues and leaks result in long-term damage to the property, but they can also promote the spread of termites. Water-damaged walls, existing leaks in the roof, bathroom, attic or sink can create a favorable environment for termites to grow and flourish.

Clean Your Gutters and Downspouts

Homeowners should be sure to clean their downspouts and gutters. These outdoor areas can lead to indoor problems by creating moisture damage that eats away into the home’s exterior. All it takes is for the gutters to be a little bit clogged for an overflow to occur and damage your property.

Drain Water Away From Your Home’s Foundation

Be sure to drain away the water from foundation and exterior walls, especially if you live in an area that is prone to heavy and regular rainstorms. Make sure that the drain spouts and air conditioner lines flow away from the home, and set up splash blocks around the area to prevent the soil from eroding the foundation. These signs of damage encourage termites and other insects to begin burrowing into your home once the weather becomes warmer.

Limit the Presence of Plants Around the Foundation

Be sure to keep organic growths, such as wood mulch, trees and shrubs away from your foundation. All of these growths provide desirable shelter and moisture for many species of insects, including termites. Stay vigilant and get rid of stray roots as quickly as they appear, and be sure to prune shrubs and trees regularly. Keep the mulch around your property at least six inches away from the foundation.
