Tip - Basic Termite and WDI Prevention

Keep areas around the property less pest friendly by keeping limbs 4-6 feet away from the home or building. Use mulches appropriately but remember they can be food to termites and other Wood Destroying Insects. If you have a traditional termiticide barrier, don't till or plant in the first foot of soil surrounding the structure. This was treated and needs to remain undisturbed. Shrubs should be kept 1-2’ from walls to reduce moisture. And, control potential high moisture issues by not allowing sprinkler systems to constantly wet the walls or leaks to go unrepaired. Exclusion and mechanical alterations are a great deterrence for pest and rodents and are first steps in any pest management program at American Termapest.
