The risk of a termite infestation is an inevitable fact of life in Central Missouri. To protect your home or business from an infestation, we recommend our termite prevention services.
Here are some tips that will help to prevent a termite 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 can still happen. For that reason, we recommend Steve’s Pest Control, Inc. and The Sentricon System to stop the destruction before it ever starts! Click here to schedule evaluation and estimate.
