PREVENTION TIPS

Termites are a serious problem for all property owners. Take action to prevent termite infestation.

Termites are amazingly proficient in gaining access to your property. Don't make their job easier. These simple steps will help you prevent termites from becoming a problem in the first place, or help keep them from coming back after HILSEN has gotten rid of them for you.

  • Trim all shrubs, bushes and other dense greenery away from the foundation of your home. Move mulch away from the foundation.
  • Don't leave firewood near your home, it's a magnet for termites. If you do keep firewood outside your house during the winter, keep it raised off the ground.
  • Remove all lumber, tree stumps and other kinds of loose wood from the perimeter of your home.
  • Fix any leaky pipes and eliminate any standing water near your home.
  • Keep gutters and downspouts free of accumulated leaves and debris. Clogs and obstructions can attract termites.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your foundation, which may provide a handy access point for termites.
  • Have your property inspected at least once a year by HILSEN. Termites are very persistent, they can return at any time.
