Are termites common in D.C.?

Thumbtack Editors

Washington, D.C., has ranked among the top U.S. termite infestations in past reports. D.C. homeowners should take extra precautions to fight infestations before they occur. One of the most important things is not to pile wood close to your house, and avoid planting trees and bushes close to your exterior. Also, look at your home’s siding, decking, door frames, siding and windows for signs of termites. Sources of constant moisture are attractive to termites, so attend to leaks quickly. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a DC termite exterminator.
