DIY tips for stopping termites in their tracks
Termites can turn your dream home into a nightmare. But this is your castle – you’ve got to protect it from pests that can eat their way through just about anything. And here are some simple DIY tips you can use to prevent termites from making themselves at home in your place.
Give termites zero reason for coming onto your property
Termites are living things, so they need food and water to survive. Remove all sources of food and water, and they can’t survive. Simple, right?
Thirsty termites will seek out:
Dripping garden taps
Leaky storm water pipes
Hot water overflow dripping on the ground
Air conditioner outlet dripping onto the ground or path
Water tank up against the house
Gutters that overflow onto the building walls and foundation.
To keep termites from coming into your home, remember the golden rules: ensure you’re NOT providing them with food and water, or making it easy for them to access your property via:
Landscaped areas that touch wooden fences or the foundation of your home
Dripping garden taps
Garden or plants covering weep holes
Wooden dog kennel against house foundation
Electrical and plumbing conduit entry points
Objects stacked against outside walls, in carports or in the sub floor
Ant capping rusted or damaged
Cracking in your slab (look at the garage floor) or main wall
What you need to look out for to help prevent termites from accessing your home
Timber fence is not attached directly to house
Trim garden away from house structure
Ensure mulch is not up against house palings
Fix dripping storm water pipe
