Termite activity is hard to spot with an untrained eye, but here are a few things that you can do on your own to keep your home protected.

Look for “mud tubes” on the sides of your home-Mud tubes are composed of frass (droppings) and saliva, and they provide termites the moisture and transportation system that they need to gain access to your home. Mud tubes look a little like a spiderweb, and they’re built from the ground up.

Deal with wood rot and water damage immediately-If you have any water damage, be sure to replace rotten wood right away. Termites love the taste of raw, unpainted wood, so be sure to repaint the new wood on your soffits and fascia right away.

Mow your lawn and trim your hedges-Mowing your lawn is an essential part of pest control because it eliminates common pest habitats. You’ll also want to make sure to trim the hedges that are adjacent to your home. If you have any large tree branches that are in direct contact with your roof, you’ll want to trim them so that you’re not creating easy access for termites and other common household pests.
