It’s that time of year! You may have seen the termites swarming lately. It’s not a welcome sight for any homeowner and we want to make sure that you are keeping your home safe year-round. Remember – even if you pay for regular treatments – keeping your home tight and dry is critical to preventing infestation. Termites love wet wood so be sure to address any indoor moisture issues as soon as they occur. Keep a close eye on the wood trim around doors, windows, garages, and roof eaves and take an occasional peek at the plywood under-sheathing of your roof from the attic. Keep exterior wood painted and replace any deteriorated or rotten wood immediately. One last reminder: NEVER store or stack firewood near or against your home. If you have not taken any treatment measures to prevent termite infestation in your home, we recommend that you consult with a professional pest inspector to get on a regular treatment plan. Need a recommendation? We are happy to provide guidance before, during and after the sale!
