It’s Termite Time

Spring is here and so is termite season. Now is a good time to make sure your house is protected from the destructive pests.

The bugs cause more than $5 billion in property damage every year, according to National Pest Management Association. That cost isn’t normally covered under homeowner’s insurance.

As temperatures start to climb, pest companies say now is a good time start looking out for them. The warmer and sometimes wet weather make this the perfect time for termites to start making moves.

How to protect your home

  • Get a professional termite inspection annually
  • Don’t keep firewood or lumber nearby your house
  • If you have mulch surrounding your home, don’t pile it high
  • Direct water away from home with gutters and drain lines

What to look out for

  • Mud trails on trees in your yard or on walls in your home
  • Wings inside your house are a sign of termite infestation
  • Distorted surfaces, cracked/bubbled paint or small holes in wood
  • Damage to foundation of home — subterranean termites live underground
