Wood destroying insects, such as termites and carpenter ants, can do massive amounts of damage to a home. This can have a terrible impact on a home’s value. In humid climate areas where termites thrive, it is not uncommon to see homes completely destroyed by wood destroying insects. Some homes are completely hollowed out and their wood siding can turn to dust with merely a touch.
There are a few things that you can do to make your home “less attractive” to termites. Termites live in the ground and look for areas that provide food, shelter, and moisture close to the ground. Wood is food for termites, so anywhere that wood touches the ground is a good place for termites to inhabit. This is especially true if the soil stays moist in this area. Separating wood from the soil is the first step towards deterring wood destroying insects.
Mulch, landscaping material, and shade can help your soil to retain moisture. Minimizing these things near your home will help to keep termites at bay. Anything that holds moisture in the soil should be placed at least one foot from your home. Firewood stacks are magnets for termites and carpenter ants. Gutters that empty too close to the home’s foundation are also a problem. Eliminating moisture problems in basements and crawlspaces is another preventative measure you can take in addition to hiring a professional to treat and protect your home.
Be sure to find out how long the treatments last. The chemicals on the market today generally protect your home for up to 5 years. How do I know if my home has termites?

Powder Post beetles are so called because in high numbers they are able to turn the inside of a piece of wood into nothing more than a mass of fine powder. These wood destroying beetles can do significant damage to log homes, furniture, wood floors and structural timbers in your home, much more damage than that done by carpenter ants or old house borers.
Powder post beetles are small (1/8 inch) and the adult beetles are seldom seen. Most of the life cycle is spent in the grub or larvae stage eating wood. Damage is done by the larvae as they create narrow, meandering tunnels in wood as they feed. This stage can last between 1-10 years, depending upon a number of factors including species of beetle, type of wood infested, age of wood, moisture content of wood and air temperature
