Carpenter Ant Prevention

  • Remove all dead, rotten, or wet tree stumps on your property.
  • Replace any rotten wood with new materials.
  • Paint or seal exposed wood to prevent water damage.
  • Store firewood off the ground, away from the structure, and only purchase one season of firewood at a time.
  • Trim trees and shrubs back from your roof or foundation to prevent a bridge to your home for these ants.
  • And, most important don’t forget to call ABC EXTERMINATING for your annual Spring/Carpenter Ant treatment.  We will be glad to give you an estimate over the phone.

Termite Prevention

  • Don’t affix wooden trellises to exterior walls.
  • Keep mulch, wood debris, scrap lumber, sawdust, and firewood away from your home.  If you do, keep firewood outside your house during the winter, keep it raised off of the ground.
  • Trim all shrubs, bushes, and other dense greenery away from the foundation of your home.  Move mulch away from the foundation as well.
  • Do not stack, store, or bury wood debris adjacent to your home.
  • Remove infested trees and stumps.
  • Repair leaking faucets and water lines, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Fix leaky roof and gutters.
  • Do not allow leaves to accumulate in gutters and drains.
  • Grade soil so that water (including air conditioning condensate) runs away from foundations.
  • Ventilate crawl spaces and attics to reduce humidity.
  • Cover at least 90% of the soil in crawlspaces with plastic sheeting
  • Ideally, wood siding, stucco, and foam board should be a least six inches away from the ground.
  • Seal all cracks and holes in your home’s foundation, which may provide a handy access point for termites.
