Check for sanding on the area under the house and then a vapor barrier. Good ventilation is a must. Check with a local termite company for some suggestions.

Definitely a clear heavy guage(4-6mil)plastic sheeting to cover the ground and to go up the walls. Mine goes up to and is attached to the sill plate. Ventilation can't hurt.
