Georgia’s mild temperature allows subterranean termite colonies to flourish. Georgia is known as the termite belt by entomologists and pest management professionals.
Subterranean termites are the most common type of termite in Georgia. They are subterranean because they need moisture to survive which is found in the soil. They eat wood and often infest structural wood in homes because of home construction with soft woods. Subterranean termites are likely to cause damage before a homeowner is aware of a problem.
Some homes are more susceptible to termites depending on the home’s construction type, home maintenance, landscaping and other conditions that are favorable to termite activity.
As mentioned, termites need moisture to survive and there are many above ground sources of moisture that may be found in a structure that isn’t being maintained properly. Leaky roofs, leaking pipes, moisture conditions in walls, etc. are conducive conditions for subterranean termites.
