Termite Prevention Can Go a Long Way Janay Rickwalder

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) celebrates April
National Pest Management Month and encourages homeowners to
pest-proof the home against termites – a destructive pest that
usually begins to swarm in early spring.
Fredericks, director of technical services for the National
Pest Management Association (NPMA), told the
Washington Post that when young adult termites emerge en masse
there could be thousands of them in a colony. Worse, he added, “You
never know how many are feeding on your house.”
When pest-proofing this spring, homeowners should pay special
attention to excessive moisture around the property, leaking rain
gutters, rotting wood and mud tubes.
