Special Assistant to the Governor of Ekiti State on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka has dismissed comments by
those gathered in Lagos today, by Senator Buruji Kashamu and paraded
as PDP leaders in the Southwest, saying; “the PDP house will not be
rebuilt with termites infested woods.”
Olayinka, who reacted to the call by the Kashamu group that the
National Caretaker Committee, led by Sen Ahmed Makarfi should desist
from relating with Governor Fayose as it regards the South West zone,
said; “Governor Ayodele Fayose will not waste his time on people whose
faces are abhorred in the gathering of people of good conscience.”
He said; “Governor Fayose is more concerned with rebuilding the PDP
and it is sure that the PDP house will not be reconstructed with
termites infested woods.”
The Governor’s spokesperson described those gathered by Senator Buruji
Kashamu in his hotel in Lagos today, as pseudo PDP members, saying
“Methinks Senator Kashamu and his men should rather face their Mega
Party of Nigeria (MPN).
“As at today, Senator Buruji’s Omo Ilu Foundation’s office in Ado
Ekiti is now the State Secretariat of MPN and all his men have openly
declared for the party. Or is MPN no longer Mega again?”
1. Stack Firewood, Lumber and Other Cellulose Products Away From Your Home for Termite Protection
Keeping your woodpile stacked up against your house for easy access in the winter is convenient, but not only can it provide a great source of food for termites, it can also give them a safe passage into your home avoiding any termite treatment that may be present. To minimize the risk of termite infestation, don’t store any wood-based products in your crawlspace, stack your woodpiles several feet away from your home and keep the wood elevated off the ground if possible.
2. Fix Improper Drainage and Minimize Moisture Around the Foundation
Termites must have moisture to survive and improper drainage around your home could be creating ideal conditions for them to thrive. Make sure your downspouts are diverting water away from your home and that your faucets and A/C drip lines are not causing water to pool around your foundation. Another often overlooked cause of termite infestations are clogged gutters and leaf debris collecting on your roof. Clogged gutters can cause water to backup and leaf debris collects moisture and begins to decay. These conditions are ideal conditions for an aerial termite infestation, especially in areas with formosan termites. In case of several infestation check out these buzzbgone reviews.
3. Clear Mulch Away From the Foundation
Wood mulch is a great way to make your home look nice but when used excessively it can create ideal moisture and temperature conditions for termite activity. Keep mulch raked back at least four inches from the foundation and never let the mulch come in contact with siding or framing of doors or windows.
4. Trim Back Overhanging Tree Limbs and Overgrown Bushes
Tree limbs hanging over your roof and overgrown bushes can create shelter areas, cause moisture build up, and provide easy paths into your home for many pests, including termites. Trees hanging over the house will also drop leaves on your roof and in your gutters that can create moisture problems that could be conducive to an aerial termite infestation.
