Spring time is an ideal time to get out in the yard, work in your garden, dig in the dirt…all those enjoyable things we like to do in the warm weather. These are great ways to improve the aesthetics of your property and also enjoy the sunshine. Hold the shovel! Wait one second before you start digging in the dirt!
Digging around the foundation of your home could disturb your termite barrier system. Minor disturbances are nothing to worry about but a major disruption can put the effectiveness of the treatment in jeopardy…causing concern for your home.
Mulch is a great way to spruce up your yard. Mulch provides protection, warmth, and moisture to plants but can also provide those same things to termites. Not to mention that mulch is wood! TERMITES LOVE WOOD! Other pests, such as, roaches and earwigs also find comfort in mulch.
Don’t be discouraged. You can still use mulch around your home. Just make sure when using mulch that it is kept 1-2 feet away from the structure. Any wood that is in contact with soil and your foundation is considered a major risk for termites.
If you’re concerned about disturbing your termite treatment or suspect you may have termites, give us a call!
