Why Are Pests Attracted to Moisture?

Like all living things today, pests depend on moisture for multiple reasons. 

However, the chief among those reasons is for basic survival. 

No matter what type of pest it is, they need moisture, they may not need a lot, but they need some for sure. 

That’s why they’re so attracted to any humid environments. It’s also why any slightly leaky pipe or standing water in the backyard can draw them right in. So if you’re wondering why pests are showing up where they previously hadn’t, looking for moisture is a good starting point. 

But what pests should you be looking for? Or what pests can you expect to see?

Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Termites

The team at Pest Control Services has been serving the Idaho community since 1970 and dealing with a wide variety of pests in that time. Termites are one of those nasty little pests that can leave your home in ruins.

Luckily, we’ve learned a lot about termites, and all of our knowledge can help you prevent your home from becoming or staying infested. In this post, we’ll update you on everything you need to know. So stick with us. 

Ensure There Aren’t Already Termites in Your Home.

Before you learn how to prevent or exterminate them, it’s a good idea to find out if they’re already present in your home. If you see one or more of the following, then you may have termites:

  1. In early spring or after a heavy rainfall, winged termites swarming.
  2. Seeing dead termites or wings from swarmers. 
  3. Accumulation of dirt resulting from mud tubes. 
  4. Warped doors or floors. 
  5. Holes in wood. 
  6. Baseboards or floors that sound hollow. 

How To Prevent Termites.

If you’re confident that you don’t have any termites, then you’re probably looking to keep it that way. We understand that more than most, so let’s break down good practices to keep these pests away:

  1. Termites love the plants you keep outside. We know you do too. However, those plants offer great opportunities for the termites to cover up their damages, and they’ll even use them as a bridge to enter your home. Leave a good distance between your outdoor plants and your home. 
  2. Termites may swarm in early spring for a number of reasons, but mainly to scout out a new home. To prevent them from picking yours, keep outdoor lights off at night and relocate them to areas away from doors and windows.
  3. Many termites in the United States are subterranean, so it can help to limit the amount of wood making contact with soil. That will give them fewer chances to climb up and feed on your home. 
  4. Properly vent all attics, crawlspaces, and basements. Humidity in these spaces attracts termites. 
  5. Lastly, ensure there aren’t gaps in your home that could allow entry. Look out for windows and doors.
