Terminix: Top Termite Cities List
Terminix released its ranking of the top 25 most termite-infested cities in the United States. Termites chewed through states including Texas, Alabama, and California, although infestations spanned from coast to coast.
Termites often flourish in warm, humid environments, and cost more than $5 billion in damage to businesses and homes annually in the United States. Because these pests tend to remain out of sight, they can cause extensive damage before building occupants even realize there is a problem.
