Since dealing with a termite infestation is an inevitable fact of life in Central Missouri, termite protection is highly recommended. Here are some tips that will help to prolong an infestation:
- Make sure your soil grade allows moisture to drain away from your house or building
- Have 2-4 inches of the buildings foundation extend above the soil grade so that the brick and other siding does not contact the soil grade
- Eliminate cellulose close to the structure. This includes: mulch, woodpiles, landscape timbers, foam boards, wood scraps
- Avoid deck post from extending beneath the soil grade
Even after doing everything possible to discourage a termite attack, it will most likely happen eventually. For that reason we recommend Steve’s Pest Control, Inc. and The Sentricon System to stop the destruction before it ever starts!
