Termite Control Services
In Phoenix, termite and other pests are an enormous issue and the team at Anteater Exterminating Inc. are the local termite specialists. There are only about 4 species of termites that are popular in Arizona and are responsible for the most amount of damage.
- Desert Subterranean Termites
- Aird-Land Subterranean Termites
- Western Drywood Termites
- Desert Dampwood Termites
Each species will look and behave differently, which is why you need a team of experts that are trained and experienced in dealing with all kinds of pest control Phoenix. Termites can cause an extreme amount of damage in a relatively short time and this type of damage can be very costly.
The desert termite is a neighborhood problem. They feed on multiple food sources including your home, your neighbor’s home, dead tree roots, wood piles and whatever else they can find. When they find food sources the colony will actively pursue causing massive amounts of damage. This makes termite control in Phoenix vitally important for maintaining the value of your property. The colony forms a viscous cycle; feed on your home, feed their queen, produce more termites and start over. It is important to eliminate the entire colony as quickly as possible to prevent any further damage. Our technicians at Anteater Exterminating Inc work quickly and efficiently to remove any and all pests from your home or business.
How do termites get in?
Termites can enter a home through tiny cracks in the foundation or in your flooring. These insects are fairly small and generally have little difficulty getting into homes, which is why it is important to be very diligent in keeping up with your termite control maintenance. Once you’ve discovered signs of termite infestation, it most likely means that there is already a larger, underlying presence.
Termite extermination in Phoenix should always be done by a professional. If the treatment is not done properly the termites will have no trouble returning. Our technicians at Anteater Exterminating Inc provide thorough termite control which includes:
- Home inspection
- Diagram creation
- Treatment plan
- Extermination implementation
Effective Termite Control
The most effective treatment to control subterranean termites in Phoenix is to do a conventional treatment. Anteater Exterminating Inc. uses Termidor SC® predominantly. This product is by far the most effective when treating for subterranean termites. Extermination often involves raking your landscaped material and then creating a trench to fill with treatment. Sometimes we have to drill into your porch slabs or into the wall. Whenever we do this, our team takes special care to leave the property looking as good as we found it.
Depending on the type of construction of your home, there may be a combination of various other treatments that would also need to be performed. For this reason, it is essential to have a visual termite inspection to determine the type of construction, the extent of the infestation, and to plan for the correct method of treatment.
A common building material in Arizona is post-tension construction slabs. These slabs do not have any interior cracks through which the termites can transverse to gain access to your home. Post tension slabs cannot be drilled because it would damage the slab and cause structural integrity defects. This is one of many reasons why you should only trust professional exterminators like the team at Anteater Exterminating Inc.
