More Information about Termites in Nevada

According to Termite Infestation Probability Zones (TIP Zones), the southern two-thirds of Nevada are located in TIP Zone #2 (moderate to heavy), which means the potential for termite damage is considered significant. The northern third of the state is located in TIP Zone #3 (slight to moderate), which means there is some potential for damage by subterranean termites. Areas with higher probabilities for termite activity require more termite control measures to meet International Residential Code building standards for new homes than areas with less frequent activity.

In states like Nevada where termites are fairly active and widespread, it is essential to maintain an effective termite prevention and control program. If you own a home in Nevada, talk to your termite control expert about methods to help protect your home from termite infestations and damage.
