We are always asked by homeowners for tips on preventing pests in the home.  As the temperatures increase, insects seem to magically show up.  We specialize in termite control, but many of the tips that apply to preventing termites work to keep other insects and creatures outdoors.  In fact, preventing termites, spiders, rodents and other pests from infiltrating your home or business is a year-round practice.

If you own a commercial property, controlling pests and termites is just as important as for a residential building.  After all, your business depends on providing a safe and healthy environment for the occupants.

Winter is also a time when the pest population increases in buildings.  Many pests gain entry as they seek refuge during the cold and wet period of the year. Mice infestations, cockroaches, silverfish and spiders are among the top pest issues in winter, and can be detrimental to businesses operating restaurants, office environments, worksites, supermarkets, warehouses, schools and medical facilities.

To prevent pests and termites from infesting your home or commercial property Home Termite Control recommends:

  • Eliminating sources of water that cause constant dampness
  • Sealing open cracks and holes
  • Clearing out drains and route the water away from the foundation
  • Removing wood piles from near buildings
  • Storing boxes off the floor
  • Regularly removing kitchen rubbish
  • Contacting a commercial pest control professional for pest and termite control solutions.
