If you have a wooden deck, then it is an open invitation for termites in many cases. If you are thinking about adding one, then consider using pest-resistant building materials. Alternatively, if it is already in place, then make sure to cover any exposed wood that termites might find attractive.

Things like chimneys, plumbing vents and other structures that stick up through your roof are an open invitation for animals, birds and pests to get into your home. You may want to consider adding caps to the top structures to help keep them at bay.
Pests can crawl along the electrical wires entering your home. Once they are inside, then they can often multiply extremely quickly.

Make sure to keep all gaps sealed and work with an expert to stop problems inside your home.
Many animals would love to live under your foundation. If it is made of wood, then it is a favorite of termites too. Keeping the area around your foundation clear of debris will stop the area from being as attractive. Make sure to keep gaps sealed here too.
