  • Leimar Carpentry(Home prevention tips)

    Here are some tips on effective termite control for your home against subterranean termites:
    1. Have regular pest inspections as, least annually carried out to check for termite infestation.
    2. Do not store untreated timber such as firewood up against the home.
    3. Hardwood timber garden sleepers are conducive to termite infestation and they need be replaced with termite resistant materials, such as treated pine or masonry
    4. With suspended floor homes, timber located on the ground under the house should be removed since it can act as an attractant to Termites
    5. Ensure venting to the sub floor is not blocked. The venting allows air flow to keep the area dry and be less attractive to termites.
