  1. For efficient termites control, reduce moisture as termites both love and need moisture to thrive. So do everything to control excess moisture in and around your home.
  2. There should be good cross ventilation in wall vents to keep the wood as dry as possible. Exposed wood should be sealed with weather sealer, especially the window seals and wall edges.
  3. Remove vegetation growing against the house as it only encourages moisture and mould in the wood.
  4. In case you are building a house, there are termite control options in the pre-construction stage of your home. It’s even better to build a barrier under your foundation so that the soil and wood don’t come in contact.
  5. If in doubt, it never hurts to have a termite inspection carried out, as prevention is always better than cure. Professional termite control companies have the necessary equipment, products and knowhow to treat any termite infestation and to prevent one.
  6. Always keep any water sources and wood in ground contact around your homes exterior walls away from the foundation of your home.
  7. All termite food sources like dead stumps, wood debris, paper and firewood should be removed from around the house.
  8. Always keep a lookout for signs of a termite infestation like mud tunnels, timber which is bubbled or cracked paint and discarded Alate termite wings.
  9. Make it a point to carry out regular termite inspections on decking timbers and fences around your home for any activity and damage caused by termites.
