This is great to see, and gives the area a reason to get out and enjoy the weather, whether it's hiking, gardening, picnicing or just sitting outside and loving the sunshine. However, this is also the time of year here when pests get out of control, and termites become such an issue. Termites see the warm weather as their time to turn your wood into their meals, and damage your home from the outside in. How can you protect yourself from termites?
The first step is prevention. There are a few things that can be done to make your home a little more secure against these pests. First, since you're alreday going to be outside more, take a walk around your property. Look for ways that termites can gain access to wood on your home, such as:

If you see these signs, you likely have a termite infestation. There are over the counter liquids and traps that you can try, but the best course of action is to call in a professional.

They will find the places that the termites hide and remove them. Richardson Pest Solutions of St. Louis uses Termidor to help control these pests.
