How Can San Diego Termite Physical Barriers Help?

If termites can’t get in your home, they can’t cause any damage. That’s why it is a good idea to invest in preventative measures, like physical barriers. Physical termite barriers are just what they sound like – barriers that stop termites from gaining access to your home.

Physical Termite Barriers

Physical barriers are primarily used to stop subterranean termites. These little guys usually invade a home from below. They dig their way through the soil and attack a home through a crawl space, wood pile, ground floor window ledge or wooden patio. If you can limit your home’s contact with the ground, it will be a lot harder for subterranean termites to invade of a live colony and how much damage the colony has created. If possible, the inspector will show you the damage if the area is in an accessible space. The inspector will also offer a recommended treatment plan.

Types of Physical Barriers

This is exactly what physical barriers are meant to do. If you are building a new home, you can put a concrete slab underneath the house, blocking contact with the soil. Another common physical barrier is a layer of stainless steel mesh that goes between your home and the soil. As with a chemical barrier, physical barriers are not a guaranteed solution against termites. They can, however, make it much harder for termites to reach your home, thus lowering the chances of an infestation.
