Are termites common in Boston?

Thumbtack Editors

Boston homes are not exempt from termite infestations. Termites can find their way into houses through particular routes — usually wood, and moist mulch and soil.

Boston homeowners can protect against termites by making sure there is no wood or persistent moisture around their home’s perimeter. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a local exterminator.
