At Pisgah Pest Control, we know that Eastern Subterranean Termites are a normal and natural insect found in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The job of the termite is to recycle cellulose "wood" back into the earth. Unfortunately, many Western North Carolina homes are made of wood making termites a big problem in our area. This is why you need the local experts to inspect and protect your home and prevent future termite infestations.

● Trees / Foliage
The trees surrounding your home could be providing termites an easy route to your home. Tree roots grow 20 ft or more from the base of the tree and can penetrate the foundations of a home giving termites an opportunity to enter.
● Mulch Beds
Mulch holds moisture and creates an ideal environment for termites. Leaving a few inches gap between the foundation and your mulch makes it harder for termites to find your home.
● Cracks in Foundation
Concrete slabs and foundations does not mean you are safe from termites. Overtime, moisture can cause tiny cracks in the foundation giving termites easy access to the structure.
● Crawl Space / Basement
Moisture occurring naturally in basements and crawl spaces can create an ideal environment for termites.
● Wood to Soil Contact
When wood comes into contact with soil (deck posts or stored firewood) is another way that foraging termites find their way to your home.
● Dense Vegetation
Trimming or removing thick vegetation around your home can help prevent termites.
