Annual Termite Inspections
Termites aren’t always visible. Subterranean termites are one of the most common types in Arizona, and they work underground. With a single colony range that can exceed the length of a football field, you may have a termite infestation and not even know it. If you’ve had a problem with termites in the past we recommend getting an inspection once a year to ensure they don’t come back.
Since they work 24 hours a day, the damage termites cause doesn’t stop until the problem is treated. With a high-quality termite inspection, Phoenix homeowners can get the help and control they need. Waiting could cost you more than you know. With the experts at Anteater Exterminating Inc. you can get a termite treatment that won’t just save you money in the long run, it could save your home.
Signs Of A Termite Colony
There are some common indications of a termite problem that you can look for.
- Mud Tubes – Because they have to remain moist, subterranean termites travel in mud tubes. They will build these on walls, ceilings and floors using them to connect different areas of your home.
- Swarming – Termite larva develop into different worker types. Reproductive termites enter a winged phase before losing them. About twice yearly they will swarm. If this happens inside they are active in the home. If it happens outside it may mean they are in the home or very nearby.
- Wing Piles – Before reproductive termites finish developing, they shed their wings. Piles may be found next to the entrance points of a nest. These may be inside or outside a home.
- Wood Damage – Termites can destroy a structure over time. Even if you can’t see it, you can still hear the damage. Tap a section of wood with a screwdriver and listen for a hollow sound. Tunnels run parallel to the wood grain, and an inspector can locate tunnels.
