While there are some signs that can indicate termites have let themselves into your home or business, many infestations can go undetected for years.

This is especially unsettling, given the extensive damage termites are known for causing – and the fact that most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover the damage.

Professionals agree prevention holds the key to how to control termites. We’ve touched on some of the key actions property owners can take to deter them: Preventing water from accumulating around foundations; controlling moisture in crawl spaces; and, eliminating wood contact with the soil with a one-inch gap between the soil and wood portions of the structure.

But the safest bet is to call the termite man to inspect your home or business. The National Pest Management Association recommends inspections every one to three years, although half of homeowners they surveyed have never had one.
