Termites are among the most destructive pests in Arizona. In a very short period of time, they can create thousands of dollars of damage and undermine the structural integrity of your home. There is too much at stake for you to take the danger they pose for granted – you need to take action before the termites ever show up in your home.

Proper Gilbert pest control is critical to keeping termites out of your home – whether that means getting rid of any that are present or keeping them from ever taking up residence. Here are a few foolproof tips for keeping termites out of your home:

Termite on woodand, and the foolproof pest control tips to keep them under control

Remove Food Sources

Your house itself is a food source for termites, and you can’t remove that. But you can remove the food sources around your home that can attract termites and bring them close to your house. Start by clearing out any wood piles around your house, including fallen branches, old project wood, and fire wood. Then clear out leaf litter and other organic material, including rotting stumps. You should also avoid using mulch near your home.

Keeping your yard free of these items is one of the best pest control measures in Gilbert you can take. It will make your yard less attractive to termites, which will reduce the likelihood that the termites will draw near to your home – and then, eventually, inside your home.

Know the Trouble Signs

Termites can eat away at your home for weeks or months without you ever realizing they are there. You must be vigilant to recognize the signs of termite presence, or your house could quickly fall into decay. Some of the signs of termite infestation include peeling or bubbling paint, mud tubes around your foundation, tracks on your wood paneling, and piles of discarded wings near your windows.

If you see any of these signs, call a reputable pest control company serving Northern Phoenix immediately. The sooner you can get a professional pest control technician in North Phoenix to determine the extent of the problem and to implement effective solutions, the less damage you will have to your home.

Invest in Professional Treatment

Even if there are no signs that your house currently has a termite problem, you need to invest in professional termite and pest control in Gilbert to protect your home. By the time you notice termites, extensive damage will have been done. The best thing you can do is invest in professional termite control to keep the termites out in the first place.

Don’t worry about the cost of treatment. Affordable termite control is readily available. Also, the cost of treatment will pale in comparison to the cost of repairing your home after termites have invaded. Talk to a Gilbert pest control technician about applying a barrier treatment to your home for long-lasting protection. The technician may have additional suggestions to protect your home, including measures you can take between treatments, such as improving ventilation.

Termites are common to Arizona, and they can be devastating to your home. You cannot become complacent about protecting your home because these pests can come in at any time, and they can spread damage quickly. If you wait until the damage is already present to do something, you will have waited far too long. Don’t allow the structural integrity of your home to be compromised or the health of your family to be threatened – call a Gilbert pest control company to inspect your home and to apply effective prevent termite control now.
