Springer Termite Solutions

When it comes to gaining access to your home, termites are amazingly proficient. The last thing you want to do is make their job easier. Follow these 3 steps to effective Termite Defense and make sure that your home doesn’t become their home and have to call organic pest control companies like Springer Termite Solutions.

Step 1: Get Professional Help from Springer Termite Solutions

Small holes in wood, crumbling drywall, sagging doors or floors, insect wings, and small mud tubes are some of the more obvious potential signs of termites. But even if you don’t notice any of these signs, that doesn’t necessarily mean termites, or the conditions that invite them, aren’t there.
Regular inspections by Springer Termite Solutions, a licensed pest professional, are the only way to ensure your home truly is, and remains, free from termites and the damage that they cause. Springer Termite Solutions professionals have the training in termite biology and behavior to identify, prevent, and treat termite problems. Springer Termite Solutions can perform a thorough inspection of your home to determine if, where, and how termites are getting in. They can also explain how to correct any conditions in your home that invite termites.

For example:

  • Don’t affix wooden trellises to exterior walls.
  • Keep mulch, wood debris, scrap lumber, sawdust, and firewood away from your home.
  • If you do keep firewood outside your house during the winter, keep it raised off the ground.
  • Trim all shrubs, bushes and other dense greenery away from the foundation of your home.
  • Move mulch away from the foundation as well.
  • Don’t bury wood debris near your home.
  • Remove infested trees and stumps.
  • Repair leaking faucets and water lines, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Fix leaky roofs and gutters.
  • Don’t allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains.
  • Grade soil so that water (including air conditioning condensate) runs away from foundations.
  • Ventilate crawl spaces and attics to reduce humidity.
  • Cover at least 90% of the soil in crawl spaces with plastic sheeting.
  • Wood siding, stucco, and foam board should be at least six inches away from the ground.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your home’s foundation, these provide a handy access point for termites.
