Karin Hendrickson, Alaska Pesticide Program Control Coordinator, confirms absence of subterranean termites in Alaska.
Hi, Ben. We were just discussing spread of termites this morning. So far, we aren’t hearing anything. If we saw them, would likely start in SouthEast Alaska where it is fairly temperate. Our certified applicators down there are knowledgeable and often in contact with us, so I bet we’d hear from them if they saw anything like that.
