Termite Prevention

An annual termite inspection is recommended for Iowa property owners. By getting an inspection every single year, you can ensure your property is protected against termites all year long.

DIY termite prevention may work to ward off termites but does not hold up when it comes to controlling termites. Popular natural prevention methods include orange oil, cardboard traps, and diatomaceous earth.

Builders can work with professional pest control companies to prevent termites in new buildings. Common techniques include using termite-resistant materials and treating the lumber with termite treatment before building.

Termite prevention costs vary but are a wise investment. Working with a professional for termite prevention will always cost less than the costs associated with repairs or treatments during a termite infestation.

Termites don’t just infest homes or businesses—they can infest items in your backyard as well. To keep them away, avoid excess moisture, piles of wood, and inspect your patio or deck regularly.

As soon as you discover termites, it’s important to contact a professional pest control company right away. To prevent termites, fix moisture problems and avoid rotting wood problems.
