Are termites common in Houston?

Answered

Houston has a hot, humid climate that can make it more attractive to termites. And previous studies and reports have named the city among the top for termite treatments.

People in Houston should take extra care to prevent termites from invading their homes. For example, it's important to avoid stacking firewood against the house, repair all of your leaks and get rid of sitting mulch. Always inspect your wooden structures — doorframes, decks, porches, fences, etc. — for signs of termites. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a local termite exterminator.
