termites in woodAs a homeowner, a termite infestation is one of your biggest fears. If it’s not, it should be. Termites cause more damage to homes in theUnited Statesthan fires and storms combined. Even a small colony of termites can severely compromise the integrity of a home in just a short amount of time. 

At the first signs of a termite infestation, there are a few things that you should and shouldn’t do to limit the damage these destructive pests can do to your home. 

As a homeowner, here’s what to DO and what NOT to do after you discover termites in your home: 

What To Do When You Discover Termites In Your Home 

  • When dealing with termites, reduce the amount of moisture around your house. Moisture attracts termites. Check for malfunctioning taps and gutters and have them corrected. Create proper ventilation in areas of the house where moisture is likely to develop. 
  • Look for any cracks on wooden structures and seal them. This will prevent termites from entering into the wood through the crack. 
  • Another option is to fill in the gaps or cracks with sand, as termites cannot build colonies where there is fine sand. 
  • While replacing compromised wooden structures, switch them out for juniper, cedar and redwood, as termites prefer them least. 
  • There is a chance of termites returning years later. Conduct yearly termite home inspections to any problems at an early stage. 

What NOT To Do When You Discover Termites In Your Home 

  • When you discover a colony of termites on the perimeter of your home, it is best to leave the colony alone. Disturbing the colony may drive them even closer, perhaps into your home. 
  • Don’t attempt to exterminate a termite colony on your own, as some chemicals can be hazardous to humans, plants and pets; as can inexperience handling the chemicals. 
  • Don’t use mulch around the house. It is a great a source of food and water for termites. Elect instead for rubber mulches, as an alternative to the wooden variety. 
  • Do not store lumber or waste on your property. This will only attract termites.

PHOENIX - Valley residents have taken notice! This year the scorpions are coming out much earlier than anticipated. Crawling and scurrying through the tightest of places and into our homes.

With the influx of scorpion activity earlier than usual this season, Valley homeowners have been left looking for answers as to why.

That’s when ABC 15 turned to the scorpion control professionals at Bulwark Exterminating for answers:

 

Seeing Scorpions In Your House Yet?

This time of year, it’s easy for Valley residents to shrug off the notion that they may have a scorpion problem, but have you really ever checked? Go ahead and take a blacklight, and explore the bushes and foundation of your home. If you see anything moving that glows in the dark, then you have scorpions!

Usually, Valley residents don’t begin to see scorpions until early April. With the uncommonly warm winter, many have seen them as early as February!

Take a few extra precautions this year; like shaking out your shoes and clothing before putting them on, and sealing up entry points to your home. Remember, scorpions can squeeze through a crack as small as the thickness of a credit card.

After taking a few precautions, protect yourself and your family by getting professional scorpion control!
