Termite Prevention


Many termite problems can be prevented. The most important thing to do is to deny termites access to food (wood), moisture and shelter. Follow these suggestions: 1) Have at least a 2-inch clearance between the house and planter boxes, or soil-filled porches; 2) Eliminate all wood-to-soil contact, such as trellises, fence posts, stair casings and door facings (they can be put on masonry blocks or on treated wood); 3) Separate shrubbery from the house to help make it easier to inspect the foundation line; 4) Use wolmanized wood (pressure-treated wood) so that rain will not rot it; 5)Seal openings through the foundation; remove wood scraps and stumps from around the foundation;have at least 12 to 18 inches of clearance between floor beams and the soil underneath. #homeinspector #homeinspection #realestate #LA #SD
