Arizona Termites - Termite Control in AZ

Arizona termites are a problem every inhabitant of a wooden structure in that state can expect to run into eventually. The two major types of termites that may trouble your home are the Subterranean Termite and Drywood Termites.

Subterranean termites, as their name implies, have nests located in the ground, below the frost line but above the water table. Two problematic species are common, the Western Su, termites in arizonabterranean Termite and the Desert Subterranean Termite. Western Subterranean Termites can enter buildings through cracks in masonry as small as 1/16th of an inch wide. They can often be detected by the mud tube-tunnels they build into, and on the outside of structures. The Desert Subterranean Termite's range overlaps into Southern Arizona. Desert Subterranean Termites are smaller and able to survive under dryer conditions than other Subterranean species. Subterranean Termites have a voracious appetite for wood. They will tunnel into wooden structures and consume wood for cellulose until the wood is merely a thin shell enclosing what is basically a hollow exterior.

Drywood termites on the other hand, live in dryer, sound wood, and require no connection with with the soil. Drywood termites form their colony in galleries they cut from the wood itself. Their colonies are rather small, and can often be found in isolated pieces of wood as small as a piece of furniture. The sure sign of Drywood termite infection is their dry, elongated droppings, which will be found around the "kickout" holes in the wood from which they are ejected. The main Drywood Arizona Termite is the Western Drywood Termite, which is found in Southern California and Utah as well as Arizona. This species infests the dead portion of living trees as well as wood in the home.

If you believe that your home is under attack by any species of termites in Arizona, contact a pest control professional IMMEDIATELY. The colony in your home is almost certainly larger than it would seem from the scant evidence that termites leave behind, and major structural damage may already be under way. Remember, termites in AZ don't have a vast amount of fallen wood in forests to feed upon like they do in some states, so your home will seem a feast to them. Thus, it is very prudent for homeowners to have their home thoroughly treated for termites by a Arizona termite exterminator BEFORE problems occur.
