Here in the desert climate of Arizona, termites are pretty much a given — which is exactly why termite prevention is crucial if you’re going to protect your home. Getting rid of these pests is imperative not just because you don’t want vile critters around, but also for sanitation and cleanliness, as well as property value. Termites in Arizona are typically subterranean, but we do also have dry-wood termites that actually live in the wood!
How can you identify if there are indeed termites in your home? The best way to know if you have dry wood termites is by finding Frass, or termite droppings, which look a little like pepper. If you’re noticing piles of what looks like sawdust around your home, there’s a good chance you need pest solutions for termite & pest control.
Likewise, subterranean termites live in the ground and are easy to spot because they require a mud tube to travel around. You’ll notice these exploration tubes around your home’s foundation, ceiling or on a wall.
I Think I Have Termites...
Arizona termites aren't going to destroy your home in a day, but they will over time, so it is best to be proactive about the problem. If you’re building a new home, for example, there are steps you can take to create an effective termite barrier. One especially useful method is to have a shallow trench dug around your home and then use termite-controlling products in the trench to eradicate infestations before they start. The soil gets returned to the area and you have built-in protection.
Sometimes, however, prevention isn’t possible. In these cases, it’s best to get professional termite solutions for pest control. Start with a free inspection from Serenity Pest Solutions.
