Tips

  • Because termites and other pests are attracted to moisture, avoid water accumulation near your home’s foundation. Divert water away from your home with properly functioning downspouts, gutters and splash blocks.

  • Quickly repair any house damage caused by moisture, such as a roof leak or plumbing leak.

  • Perform routine maintenance on your home, just as you do on your automobiles. You should routinely caulk, paint and clean your gutters.

  • Reduce humidity in crawl spaces.

  • Prevent shrubs, vines and other vegetation from growing over and covering vents and also from growing on the exterior of your home.

  • Eliminate wood contact with the ground around your home.

  • Remove any wood, construction debris, or fallen insulation from your crawl space or around your home.
