Termites are more prevalent during the spring months, causing over $5 billion in property damage a year, but can go completely unnoticed until the damage is already too severe to prevent. It is best to have licensed professionals come out to your home regularly to check for termite damage, and spray a product such as Termidor in order to prevent future termite damage.
Certain species of ticks can carry serious illnesses like lyme disease that can be transmitted when a tick bites a person. It is important to take necessary precautions such as checking your skin after being outside to make sure that no ticks are present. In addition, it is also helpful to wear insect repellent with at least 20% DEET.
