Are termites common in Atlanta?

Answered

Atlanta has ranked high among U.S. cities for the occurrence of termites, several past reports have revealed. Termites thrive around homes where wood comes into contact with the ground, such as decks, siding or even firewood stacked up around the house. Other conduits for termites include bushes, mulch, and dead trees and branches that are too close to the house.

Homeowners in Atlanta must take extra precautions to prevent termite infestations. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a termite exterminator.
