Want to Avoid St. Louis' Termites? Move to Alaska...or Just Take a Few Precautions

Protect your home from termites with a few simple steps, but if you do find evidence of them, call a termite expert to ensure you exterminate the termites without damaging your home.
Aug. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- While it is true that Alaska is the only state in the union that hasn't seen structural damage from termites, most people probably wouldn't actually pick up and move there just to avoid the little wood-eating pests. So what are your other options? If you haven't seen evidence of termites in your home, there are a number of prevention steps you can take. The Ohio State University Department of Entomology has an excellent list of recommendations, including:

-Don't store firewood, lumber or paper against your foundation or in your crawl space
-Avoid or minimize use of wood mulch next to the foundation
-Make sure water is directed away from the foundation
-Keep your basement or crawl space dry

But what if you've already seen evidence of termites in your home? Considering that termite damage annually costs U.S. homeowners billions, you should move quickly to minimize structural damage. There are a number of termite baiting systems and treatments - usually requiring specialized treatment and expertise - that will exterminate the destructive bugs, but as with other bug infestations, the term "don't try this at home" is right.  For the best termite control and termite removal in St. Louis, contact a St Louis termite expert like Richardson Pest Solutions at http://RichardsonPestSolutions.com to ensure you get rid of the termites without causing even more structural damage to your home due to inexperienced exterminators.
