If we’re being honest, a lot of us have our lazy moments—well, so do wood-boring insects like termites, carpenter ants, and various beetles. If you have a leak in or around your home’s foundation, water could find its way through the wall. Once the water reaches your studs, the wood will soak up the moisture, causing the wood to soften. These conditions make it a great day for wood-boring insects.
So, now that you know why water leaks could cause pests problems, you’re probably wondering what you can do to prevent the problem. First and foremost, you need to fix leaks as soon as possible. Additionally, everyone who has a basement should have their basement professionally waterproofed.
