As termites swarm in various parts of the Philippines at the onset of the rainy season, homeowners may start to worry and wonder what they can do to avoid losing their homes to or footing a huge bill to repair damage caused by termite infestation.  The following are some practical tips that homeowners can easily implement to help prevent future anay or termite problems on an existing structure.

First, remember that termites feed on wood.  Therefore, remove wood in any form (logs, refuse, old furniture pieces, tree stumps, etc) away from the exterior of your home or building.

Second, termites are attracted to water.  Damp areas around the house or building caused by leaks or drains from sink, rain spouts, airconditioning units, etc. invite termite infestation.

Wood and water around the structure can become constant source of termites that could undermine ongoing or completed termite treatments on the property.

Finally, be on the lookout for signs of termite infestation such as swarming in or near the property, mudtubes (termite “highways”), or actual damage.  Your regular monitoring can help termite pest control professionals locate and confirm potential or ongoing infestation.
