Termite Control In Phoenix Can Be A Tricky Science To Master

September 05, 2022

Scientists have been studying pests and pest control for many years. A common trend is that some invasive species are easier to treat than others. Most common pests in Phoenix are preventable, using general pest control measures. Others require special treatments. Termites are one of the more problematic species to control. Here is why they are so hard to treat and what every homeowner in Phoenix should know about termite control. If you are less curious about how termite control works and just want a quick answer to a termite infestation on your property, call us at Green Home Pest Control. We would be happy to discuss your options and find a method that meets your need.

What Are These Mud Tubes For?

The most common types of termites around the globe and here in Phoenix are subterranean termites. These pests build large social nests under the ground and use tunnels to invade nearby sources of wood. If these termites reach the foundation of your home and have no easy way up to the structural wood, they will build mud tubes. These pencil-sized tunnels keep these pests moist and protected from drying conditions outside. They are also a great way for you to identify a termite infestation inside your home. Other signs of termites come after initial infestation and involve severe damage to your home. For this reason, we recommend scheduling your home for an annual termite inspection courtesy of Green Home Pest Control. We can identify these pests before they cause extensive damage. 

Termites Can Cause Irreparable Damage

Most pests that invade homes here in Phoenix only want to eat your food. As annoying as this is, it is a whole lot better than the problems termites cause. If you didn’t know, termites consume wood and other cellulose-based items. When these pests invade structural wood, they cause sometimes irreversible damage. Now, this damage does not happen overnight. It takes termites months if not years to severely damage a home. The problem comes with how hard these pests are to identify. The only way to ensure your home stays safe is to invest in professional year-round termite control. 

What Every Homeowner Should Know About Termite Control 

There are many methods professionals use to combat termites. Some common methods you should know about include bait stations, liquid treatments, and fumigation. Bait stations use slow-acting poisonous bait to eliminate termite nests from the inside out. Liquid treatments work as an invisible defensive barrier around the exterior of a home. Finally, fumigation is used to deal with severe infestations of termites. It works by filling a home with a gas that is harmful to termites but not to your furniture and belongings. Each pest control company handles these pests a bit differently. Make sure you find a provider that doesn’t just offer effective termite control but also cares about your home and property.
