My name is Tyler Royce, I’m with TNT Pest
Control, we’re talking about how to keep termites out of your backyard, to get rid of them out
of your backyard. The best thing to do to keep termites out of your backyard – if you
have a tree if you cut down a tree, we recommend pulling the stump out of the ground. Do not
leave the stump in the ground. That will be an area where termites would come in to eat
the stump. Any wood products that are around your yard, boards, firewood stacked up against
the house, we recommend keeping that out of the backyard. Other ways to keep termites
out of your backyard would be to just keep any wood products, water moisture content,
make sure you’re not having an area where you’re flooding too much or high water content.
Try to keep your water content under control. Another thing is I don’t recommend any bark
products in the yard, they do have some synthetic or recycled tires, any other type of blocks
will work really good. I have done some jobs where bark has been against the house and
they’ve had termites coming in and feeding on the bark.
