Termites attack from underground and are the most destructive and costly wood-destroying pests we encounter. Protect your wooden outbuilding, deck or fence posts from costly insect damage. Installed between the cement blocks and the skids, this termite shield should extend 2” out from the cement block on all sides, then descend on a 45° angle, extending another 2”. This forms a metal barrier that will help prevent termites from building their mud tunnels up the foundation. Shields will be able to help you identify termite damage as early as possible. It is recommended to have one foundation termite barrier for every cement block or pier that you are going to place under your tiny home or cabin for support. Other handy household uses include pot tray, paint pan, oil drain pan, barbecue grease pan.
