How a Termite Infestation Can Start
Getting rid of termites starts with figuring out how they are getting in. Termites start as a colony in your yard and move on to the foundations of your home through cracks or gaps around pipes or wires.
Common causes for a termite infestation:
- Wooden structures, such as a porch or deck, that is in direct contact with the ground
- Stacks of firewood that lean against the house
- Damp soil near foundations from leaking faucets, gutters, or downspouts
- Trees and shrubs planted close to the building
- Locations above ground in the house that remain damp enough to support termites without their needing to return to the moist conditions found in the soil
Where Do Termites Live?
Termites typically are attracted to moist areas and wood. Commonly, termites live in wooden structures, decayed trees, fallen timber, and soil. Since some termites require different amounts of moisture, these habitats do vary amongst species. Subterranean termites are the most abundant variety and can be found throughout the United States. Both damp wood and dry wood species are generally more localized in the southern states.
