If your home is built of wood or has a lot of woodwork involved, the one thing that you need to be wary of is termite infestation. Once wood becomes a target for these wood-destroying insects, it becomes almost impossible to treat them completely. Although some ways can be used to treat a termite infestation, it would be better to take preventive measures from the beginning. Some ways to prevent termite infestation are:
– Get rid of moisture: The presence of moisture in a wooden structure is an indication of problems. It is like an open invitation to pests. The moisture rots away the wood which gives termites an opening to attack the interiors of the wooden article.
– Maintain a distance between the soil and wood: If possible, always use concrete to make the distance between the soil and the wood. Soil inserts moisture into the wood causing decay and home for wood-destroying insects.
– Use Borate on Wood Before Priming or Painting: Borate is one of the most popular termite repellents. You can spray borate on wood before priming and painting. It soaks into the wood and essentially prevents termites from attacking and nibbling on it.
