One of the readers of my blog asked which state in the US is the most heavily infested with termites. The Southern states are experiencing the worst termite infestations, mostly because of high moisture and moderate temperatures in the states. Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama are well known for heavy termite infestations among other states.
Unfortunately, houses and buildings in every state in the US except Alaska are experiencing termite damages. In the United States, about 85%-90% of all termite damage is caused by Subterranean termites. Subterranean termites are well known as the most destructive wood-feeding insect in many states. They not only feed on dead trees, but these termites feed on virtually anything including pine lumber, fabrics, papers, fences, flowers, and crops. These termites are deadly. Some say Subterranean termite damage exceeds $5 billion every year in the United States.
