Lawn & Garden Termite Prevention

You probably know by now the ways termites can damage a home. But in Lubbock TX, they can infest in your yard and garden just as easily! Whether indoors or out, if there’s an abundance of cellulose or rotting wood it’s prime real estate for termites.

Tips to Prevent Termites Outdoors

If you have wood in your yard, either in furniture, patios and decks, or reserves of firewood, your lawn is vulnerable to termites. If you’re looking to deter termites from your backyard, you can do the following:

  • Remove sources of rotten wood.
  • Store firewood several inches above the ground and away from your home.
  • Quickly fix any moisture or drainage issues.
  • Work with a pest control company that can safely treat your yard.

Getting Rid of Termites Outdoors

If you put any amount of time cultivating and maintaining your garden, you may be hesitant to use any treatments that can ruin your grass or plants. There are eco-friendly barriers in termite prevention, such as orange oil, diatomaceous earth and boric acid. However, these will not eradicate an active infestation. In cases like that, it’s best to rely on an exterminator from D’s Pest Control to treat your yard without harming your vegetation.
