It’s not your food we want! It’s your home!
They are hungry and they hide very easily. They want to eat, but not your typical food. No, termites will settle for nothing else than your home. How can you combat them? There are several ways.
One thing that is rarely thought about during home repair, is what about the existing termite treatment? If you have done a home repair project that required you to dig up utilities for instance, that would disturb the termite treatment, if treated with a liquid termiticide.
Termites love to hide in piles of branches and left over yard mulch. Of course we always want to plant our flowers and such close to the home. The problem of course is that works as an attractant for termites. Move the mulch back and the chances of termites going after the wood in your home goes down. If you have an old tree stump still in your yard that is like a pre made castle to a termite. Especially if it is close to your home it can be almost a termite trampoline for them to propel themselves right into the attic or other wood bore area in your home.
If you think you have a termite issue, make sure to have your home inspected and treated to avoid any future damage.
