Termites can enter through the smallest crack in the foundation, making it almost impossible to completely “termite proof” a home, but there are ways to eliminate high risks. First, start by eliminating all wood to earth contact; including any wood near a home – e.g. old fence, fallen trees, and old construction material. Next, make sure you can see the foundation all around the house leaving at least 12 – 18 inches between the earth and siding. Also, cut off any unwanted moisture in the house - damp basement, flooding around foundation, etc. We can also install termite monitors around the exterior of your home to detect if any termite activity is present.
