Problematic Construction Practices

 

Poor construction habits and practices of home builders and renovators are the leading cause of pest problems in houses in Arlington, TX. Below standard construction practices and methods undermine the ability of the house to properly safeguard itself against dilapidation and infiltration of not just wood bugs but other kinds of problems as well.

 

Following are some issues that can cause infestation problems in Arlington, TX:

 

  • Drainage Considerations: Some builders neglect the proper practices in Arlington, TX when constructing effective pathways of water around and away from the structure of your house. Short eaves and downspouts cause water from rain and snow tend to hold water and moisture against the walls and foundation of the house instead of carrying it away like it should. Water that seeps through the wood provides suitable environments for wood bugs to thrive in.
  • Wood in Soil Contact: The presence of wood in the soil makes your area in Arlington, TX prone to infestation, making control measures a possibility if not a necessity.
  • Leftover Building Materials: Remember that subterranean bugs take their nourishment from cellulose, and cellulose can be contained in backfilled construction debris, especially wood. This also goes to say that wood left in CMUs or masonry units can be infested, and so can leaving grade stakes, form boards and spacers in slabs.
  • Landscaping: Landscaping jobs may not necessarily mean a lack of care practice when it comes to construction in Arlington, TX, but when they are not correctly graded, they can cause infestation problems. One important thing to note is that these bugs absolutely love it when there’s too much gravel on the foundation of your house or building from landscaping jobs because that only means one thing - moisture.

 

If you cannot avoid construction works or landscaping jobs in Arlington, TX, there are a couple of things you can do to reduce the possibility infestation. One is to prevent wood to get in contact with the soil as much as possible and two, have a good drainage system so the soil is left dry.
