Termites can be a nuisance in any household as they cause a great amount of property damage in case you do not control them on time. Damage caused by termite can be quite an extent that sometimes it is undoable as well.
Following are few reasons why termites can really turn into infestation and only a professional pest control Sunshine Coast can help you to get rid of them.
- Damp wood
Often many back porches and steps, patios etc remain exposed to water. In case you have a pool in your backyard then there will certainly be splashes and the wood will become damp.
For most homeowners this will be one of the basic concerns. Termites usually are easily attracted to a damp wood, try to chew holes or create cracks and also make your wood to sag.
Also, this can be very dangerous as wood may break and can cause injuries anytime, and besides that once termites will crop up, they will start proliferating and leading to uncontrollable infestation which only experts will be able to tackle.
- Limited sunlight
All termites love cool, dark and wet places. By keeping your home exposed to enough sunlight, with the sun rays you can keep your house dry and warm too.
This can prevent the termites from entering and nibbling on the furniture and house. By blocking the sun light, you will invite termites to home.
So, you must rather trim down all the surrounding trees around your household. You need not cut them down, but just trim them.
- Leaving mulch unattended
Due to various changes in climate, season and rain, mulch may develop which can make your soil moist.
If you do not properly dispose it off, the moisture present in the mulch may attract termites. All these termites will then latch themselves into your home.
- Exposed stumps
Those tree stumps that have been totally abandoned, and became victims of weather are also likely to have few termites. Any presence of damp wood will create infestation of termites which are the main cause of their presence.
If you want to remove this problem right from its roots, then the simplest way will be to ensure termite free zone around your home.
- Moisture in the basement
Often condensation on the pipes may also attract termites since most of these pipelines may run through your basement and mostly people take care about the laundry down and as a result moisture is developed.
Therefore, this room will often fall victim to termite infestation. In case, you cannot handle this situation then it is better to take help of professionals.
