As general when we talk about “termite” most of us will refer it as “White Ant”. These tiny size creatures will become very destructive when they invade into the building properties. This leads to great economic losses. Singapore is one of the countries known to experience high level of termite infestations. This has made people device several ways to control the infestations in their homes.
Termite prevention in your home
- Avoid having mulch in your home. Most people in Singapore have the tendency to have home gardens that have mulch. You need to note that mulch contain cellulose that attracts the termites. If you have to use mulch, ensure that it is placed far away from the foundation of the house to prevent covering vents and weep holes where the termites can thrive.
- Ensure your home does not have any sources of moisture. It is good to note that there are species of termites that thrive well in areas that have a lot of moisture and depend on the water sources for their survival. Because of this, it is good to ensure your home is free of any broken or leaking pipes. Check for any sources of water in the basement, laundry room or attic because these are the areas that can offer the termites a conducive living environment. The entire home drainage system should be working properly.
- Carry out frequent inspection of signs of termite infestation. This is the first and most important step towards termites prevention in your property.
