Are termites common in Fort Worth?

Thumbtack Editors

The Dallas/Fort Worth area is no stranger to termites. A warm climate gives the insects plenty of time to establish colonies. But Fort Worth homeowners can take precautions to prevent termite infestations in their homes.

The most important step is to remove ways for the termites to get into the home, such as avoiding stacking wood against the house, making sure mulch doesn't touch the siding and ensuring that there are no moist spots around the house from drainage pipes or leaks. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a local termite exterminator.
