Clackamas homes are, despite colder, more inhospitable conditions, just as vulnerable as any to termite infestation. Once termite colonies have established themselves in the wood structures of your home, extricating them can typically only be achieved with the skilled services of a professional pest control specialist. However, keeping an eye out for these few red flags can help keep termite damage minimal.
Repair any and all leaking faucets, water pipes, exterior AC units, fascia, soffits and rotted roof shingles. These water damaged and damage causing issues can provide an inroad for termites in search of a winter home.
Store firewood, compost, and waste at least 10 feet away from your home. These areas provide termites with a space to develop their invasion by trapping water and humidity- two things required for termites to thrive, and in no short supply in the Pacific Northwest.
Create and maintain at least a 20-inch gap between your yard and/or garden’s soil and any wood sections of your home.
