Termites are another pests that will enter your home without warning, causing considerable damage to your home if left unprotected. Termites are often referred to as a silent destroyer because they can go undetected for long periods of time, unless you have the termite control professionals at Rottler inspect regularly. Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions can help remove current infestations or prevent your home from termite damages with a year-round prevention program. Bed bug infestations are on the rise across the United States and Brentwood is no exception. These pests are hitchhiking pests and can be found anywhere people are, meaning you can pick these pests up wherever you go. If bed bugs have found a way into your home our technicians are trained in a number of ways to rid your home of these pests. Mosquitoes are another insect that Brentwood residents have to worry about, thankfully we have programs available to help limit your exposure to these disease carrying pests.
When it comes to talking about termites, there is no way to avoid discussing just how damaging these wood-destroying pests can be. In fact, termites are responsible for causing over 5 billion dollars’ worth of damage to properties across the United States annually. Even worse, the damage they cause is not covered by most homeowners insurance plans.
To help prevent your Brentwood, Missouri, property from becoming a nesting place for termites, and your home a place for them to feed, the termite professionals at Rottler want to offer some helpful information. In order to help prevent problems with termites, it is first important to understand that termites are moisture-seeking pests. They are highly attracted to high humidity levels and water-damaged or decaying wood. This means that if you reduce the moisture levels and decaying wood in and around your home, your home and property will become much less appealing to termites.
Make sure that your home’s gutters are clear and are not allowing water to seep into your home’s walls. Any runoff water should be directed away from your home.
Trim trees, shrubs, and bushes and create enough space between your home and any plant life to allow the sun to hit the ground and dry out the soil. Leave a barrier between plants, soil or moisture, and your home’s foundation.
Fix any leaky faucets, fixtures, pipes, or hoses located either inside or outside your home.
Remove structural wood from your home that has been damaged by water and replace it with sound wood.
Utilize dehumidifiers in basement areas and ensure that all crawl spaces are properly ventilated.
Remove wood piles, tree stumps, fallen trees, and downed tree limbs from your property.
In addition to implementing the above prevention tips and inspecting your home’s foundation, and sealing any cracks and crevices found, contact the termite control experts at Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions.
