$100 Off SLO Termite Treatments During Termite Week

Dear Readers,  

Did you know that the average queen termite can lay approximately 1 egg every 15 seconds?  That’s 291 eggs every hour!?  Scary, right?

Ants are termites’ main competition and predators. Occasionally, termite and ant colonies near each other will even go to war over territory and access to food. These “wars” consist of organized invasions upon colonies conducted by both species’ respective soldier castes.

Termites vs Ants

Some species of termite build their colonies upward, creating building-like dirt mounds.  While rare, some termite colonies have been recorded to measure over 30 feet high!

Each year, termites inflict more than 5 billion dollars worth of property damage.

Termite Destruction

Termite Awareness Week happens every year from March 11th through 17th.

Here are five things you can do today to help prevent termites from taking over your property.

Properly store wood piles. Termites are attracted to wood, as we all know. Make sure to store your wood piles at least 20 feet away from the sides of your home and try and store wood at least 5 inches off the ground.

Get rid of dead wood. Old stumps and dead trees are a buffet for termites, so you make sure and get them removed promptly. If you are in need of tree removal services, contact our good friends at KD Janni Landscaping!

Minimize use of mulch. Mulch can help your home look great, but it also looks great to termites. Make sure that when placing mulch you keep it 15 or more inches away from your foundations, and use the least amount possible.

Reduce moisture around your home. Check your home for leaky pipes, pools of water in your basement, roof and foundation. You can also check your HVAC systems for leaks or drips.

Schedule an annual termite inspection. Having a professional come out to check your home often will help you find signs of termites as soon as they appear.
