Termites don't damage your home in a day or a week. It takes time. The first step in termite control is to look for early warning signs of termites. Unfortunately, these signs are often subtle. You need to continually watch for them or take the time to explore your property and look in the sheltered and hidden spaces where evidence is typically found.
When you find evidence of active termites, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite for a termite treatment. We use professional-grade products and install them according to strict protocols. Once the products are installed, we maintain them so that termites never have the opportunity to get past your defenses.
Only two factors attract termites. They are the same two factors that attract all pests to your property. Can you guess what they are? If you said food and water, you are correct.
Termites are always looking for food. If you identify potential food sources, you will make your property resistant to termite activity. Termites aren't going to thrive in your yard if they can't find food.
Now, you may wonder, "Isn't my home food for termites?" Yes. Your home is a food source for termites, but most homes aren't an easy source of food. Termites live in the ground and prefer not to come out into the air because it dries them out, and they could die. They also have an aversion to light—even moonlight. So, worker termites that stumble upon your home may not immediately attempt to get at the wood because they are first greeted with a foundation they must traverse.
Subterranean termites create above-ground tunnels made of soil and saliva to go from the soil to all of the delicious wood in your home. That takes work. It also takes energy. The worker termites that enter your yard won't have the energy they need to build mud tunnels on your foundation walls if they don't find food sources in your yard. Do you see how it works?
What do termites feed on to get the energy they need to attack your home? Let's take a look at the most common sources of food that feed termites in Sugar Land, and how you may remove that food.
Once you've addressed the food, take a moment to consider moisture. Remember how termites need moisture to stay hydrated? They will have more success exploring your foundation and creating mud tubes up your foundation walls if they are hydrated. They're also more inclined to tunnel in soil that is moist. Here are a few quick tips to reduce moisture.
If you roll your sleeves up and do the hard work needed, you can significantly deter termites. When you combine these tips with routine inspections, you'll have some protection from termites. Some protection is better than no protection.
Once you take steps to make your yard less interesting for termites, you may wonder if it is possible to keep them out of your yard altogether. The sad truth is that there is no way to keep termites from entering your yard. The best you can hope to do is reduce the number of termites and limit their ability to find food for energy and moisture for hydration.
Some Sugar Land residents turn to termite control products to stop termites because termite products offer the promise of colony elimination. Unfortunately, there are many ways over-the-counter termite control products can fail, and when they fail, you're not likely to realize it. There are few things as frustrating as paying money and putting in the hard work to control termites only to have them damage your property anyway.
We already pointed out that contacting All-Safe Pest & Termite is the best way to get rid of termites, but what is the best way to protect your property before termites enter your yard? Our answer is the same. The termite control we put in place doesn't just arrest current termite activity, it creates a barrier that continually protects your property against termite damage. We use the two top names in termite control: Termidor and Sentricon. Termidor works quickly to address a current infestation. Sentricon can do this as well but is best for ongoing protection and termite monitoring. Contact us and find out what will work best for your property. We look forward to helping you find the perfect solution for your specific needs.
