readings as moisture is considered a major risk factor for subterranean termites. Your inspector will also advise to keep timber materials not in direct contact with soil and will encourage you to ensure your weep holes remain unobstructed. The idea is to reduce the risk of a termite attack and if one does occur to make it easier to catch.
