With the exception of Alaska, termites are found in every state within the United States, preferring warmer climates. Our mild temperatures and moderate rainfall make Georgia the perfect environment for termites. Specific termite habitats depend on the species, however, many termites will nest in homes and structures. Some termites nest and live underground in soil, while others prefer to live above ground, nesting in dry wood. Termites have been found living in walls, bathrooms, furniture, logs, and other wood sources found in or near the home.
