The Mid-South falls within the Mississippi Delta. Our hot, moist climate is very hospitable for termites. Coupled with Memphis’ mild winters, termite infestations are a year-round issue in the region. Fortunately, Allied can help with termite extermination and prevention at your home or business.

Unless your home is being treated regularly for termites, you are subject to new termite infestations and termite damage. Maintaining an in-date contract can help protect your home from future termite issues and repairs.

It is possible as termites live and breed in the soil. Termites also wander and forage within a 200-300 feet radius, meaning that is residential areas, termites can infest multiples areas and homes as they feed on various types of wood.

To date, Formosan termites have not been identified in the Memphis and surrounding areas. They naturally live in the coastal South and have been shipped into other areas via landscape and railroad timbers from these areas.
