Termites are known for their ability to destroy wood quickly. They can damage the building and cause psychological distress to anyone who is experiencing a termite infestation. These pests flourish in very specific types of conditions, so you can educate yourself about their habits in order to make informed decisions about your particular pest-control requirements. Our service professionals are always available to answer additional questions you might have about advanced termite control solutions from Hart Pest Control.
Climate and Termite Infestations
Termites thrive in conditions where there is a lot of lush vegetation. If you live in a region that has beautiful forests and a lot of vegetation, you might also live in a climate that has a large termite population. To control these pests, you must be able to eliminate the specific conditions that attract them to your home. The first condition that you should understand is moisture. Warm and humid areas of the world are more likely to attract termites than cold areas. This means that the interior of the building will also become more attractive to termites if you live in a colder area of the country.
What Attracts Termites?
Termites are like any other pest; they seek food and shelter from harsh outdoor conditions. This may lead them right into your home. Once you understand the types of things that attract termites, you can begin to become aware of these conditions inside of your property. You might not be able to change everything that is attracting these pests to your home or commercial building. However, you can take precautions to eliminate certain aromas that are known to attract these pests.
Vegetation will attract termites because of the moisture in the soil. If you live in a climate where it is easy to grow vegetables or flowers, you might also end up attracting subterranean termites as well. These pests are capable of building large colonies underground, so you have to be able to recognize the signs of an early infestation in order to protect your property. The best preventative measure is to keep the debris out of the lawn area. If your plants are decaying, this smell will attract termites. Clear any tree branches that fall around the home, and keep your bushes and shrubs trimmed. This will help you ward off a termite infestation if you live in a warm, humid climate.
