The South-Eastern States, California and Hawaii are areas in which termites are very problematic. People living in these locations must be very vigilant as failure to do so in can result in severe damage to houses and property.
Those living in the Central and North-Eastern part of the United States are also at High-Risk. Whilst the problems in these areas may not come as frequently as in the high risk areas, it is still important to implement strong anti-termite measures.
Areas of moderate risk include those living mainly living in the north-western part of the USA whereas those at low risk include people living on the central northern border next to Canada. These areas still have the possibility of termite infestations but the chances of this occurring are much less likely.
The list below will show you the level of termite risk for each state.
