Utah Termite Prevention

The Best Method for Control of Subterranean Termites

Termites need wood and moisture to survive and thrive. Taking steps to minimize wood and moisture near the foundation of your property will go a long way when it comes to protecting your property from the risk of termite infestation and the need for costly termite control solutions.

Our Utah termite prevention specialists recommend that you:

  • Stack firewood away from your home, preferably at the opposite end of your yard
  • Make sure that leaves and garden waste aren’t stored next to your property
  • Ensure regular maintenance of faucets and pipes and that you fix any leaks immediately
  • Make sure that water from rain, pipes, and garden hoses drains away from the foundation of your house.

For termite prevention assistance, call Guardian Pest & Lawn today at (801) 225-6000 or contact us online.

Why Checking Wood Is Incredibly Important

Wood that directly touches soil gives termites easy access. There should be no contact between the building woodwork and the soil or fill material. Exterior woodwork should be located at a minimum of six inches above ground.

Regular inspection of the following may help to spot signs of early termites:

  • Fence posts, trellises, or landscaping ties
  • Firewood stacked up against the house
  • Mulch that touches the house
  • Structural support
  • Wood debris (left over construction materials) buried in the soil

Why Preventing Excess Moisture Is So Crucial

A small leak can create ideal moisture conditions for termites.

Whenever possible, fix the following issues immediately; this will help reduce the risk of termite activity around your property:

  • Leaky faucets
  • Leaky gutters and downspouts that leave water near the foundation
  • Ground that slopes towards the foundation—proper grading of soil to direct water away from the structure is essential
  • Insufficient ventilation in basements and crawl spaces
