Where Are Drywood Termites Found?
If you feel some areas of wood are particularly vulnerable you can treat it with Boracare first, allow the application to dry for at least 72 hours and then paint or otherwise seal the wood.
Outdoor Sanitation & Prevention Tips
- Trim all shrubs, bushes and other dense greenery away so that they do not touch your structure.
- Don't leave firewood near your home, as it is a magnet for termites. If you do keep firewood outside your structure during the winter, keep it raised off the ground and protected from water if at all possible.
- Remove all lumber, tree stumps and other kinds of loose wood from the perimeter of your structure.
- Seal as many cracks, crevices and holes in your structure as possible, as they may provide a handy access point for termites.
