More Information about Termites in Oregon

According to Termite Infestation Probability Zones (TIP Zones), Oregon is located in TIP Zone #3 (slight to moderate), which means there is some potential for damage by subterranean termites. Areas with lower probabilities for termite activity require fewer termite control measures to meet International Residential Code building standards for new homes than areas with more widespread activity.

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