Pest problems at a construction site can put people at risk and potentially result in damage. The biggest threat are wood-destroying insects like termites and carpenter ants. Pest infestations in construction sites can also put buildings at further risk after construction is complete, making it important to invest in pre-construction pest control.
At Pest Defense Solutions, we know what it takes to keep pests away from your construction site using our pre-construction pest control methods.
Construction site pest problems
Without pre-construction pest control, sites can be prone to pest issues. The most common pest problems in construction sites include:
- Subterranean termites: Termites are a feared construction site pest and can cause a lot of damage.
- Wild animals: Raccoons, squirrels, and bats are often found in or near construction sites as they often provide them with shelter and food.
- Rodents: Mice and rats can spread disease, bite humans, and cause messy property damage.
- Birds: Bird droppings can result in unsafe conditions for workers and cause accidents.

Pre-construction termite prevention
Termites are the most dreaded pest in construction sites. One important step in pre-construction pest control is treating the soil before moving forward with anything else. Doing this can form a chemical barrier to prevent termites from getting near the building during construction and long after as well. It’s also important to build the property in a way that ensures the building will have proper ventilation in order to prevent excess moisture and humidity. Additionally, it’s crucial to keep wood sitting above the ground to avoid direct contact with soil. Lastly, it’s best to create proper drainage for the property, best achieved by sloping the soil away from the foundation.
