Termite Control is one of the most requested pest control treatments in the Phoenix area. The old saying is true, when it comes to termites in Arizona, “It’s not a matter of IF you’ll get them, but WHEN.” Fortunately our technicians are experts in the field of termite control.
Many people are unaware of just how common termites are here. In fact, the desert subterranean termite is so prevalent in Arizona that new homes are required to receive a preventative pretreatment before the foundation of the home is even poured. These treatments generally only last 3 years, so its important that your structure be inspected regularly and treated quickly if signs of termite activity are noticed.
Not all Phoenix termite control companies are the same. As a result, their service, pricing and termite treatment methods and products vary greatly. Here are a few recommendations when deciding who to go with.
Arizona Termite Control typically involves the subterranean termite. Even though all homes are pretreated for termites when built in Arizona, that chemical barrier does not last forever. Over time, as the pretreatment begins to break down, your structure becomes more and more unprotected. “Mud tubes” can be seen forming along the concrete foundation of your structure. Termites build these tubes to travel from the soil, up the foundation and into your home. Termites chew on and consume wood for the cellulose it contains, and they need a lot of it. Structural damage caused by termites can be severe and is not only costly to repair, but can also be dangerous if left untreated.
