Termite Treatment – Specialized service designed to eliminate infestations of any one of the numerous pale-colored, usually soft-bodied social insects of the order Isoptera that live mostly in warm regions and many species of which feed on wood, often destroying trees and wooden structures. Also called white ant.
The word “termite” by itself is enough to make any homeowner cringe in the fear that their home can be secretly destroyed. When combined with “treatment” that cringe changes to panic and worry about how to afford an expensive termite treatment. The “I need to do something right now before my house is destroyed” feeling only adds to the anxiety. This termite induced state of apprehension may cause, uncertainty, and fear resulting from the anticipation of a realistic or fantasized threatening event or situation, often impairing physical and psychological functioning.
If you think you may need a termite treatment…the first step is to call a Phoenix exterminator to get a FREE TERMITE INSPECTION. An experienced Phoenix exterminator can determine if you have need for a termite treatment. Arizona is home to at least 17 species and not all will require an expensive termite treatment to eliminate the infestation. Not all Arizona termites are the same. Not all Arizona termites will be a threat to your home. Arizona termites can invade your home from underground, above ground, via flight or be imported into your home. Termite treatment methods are not cookie cutter for all species. Termite treatments that treat the soil around your foundation provides little deterrent for termites that invade via stress cracks under your home, via flight or get imported.
Best protection = Termite Inspection
Yearly termite inspection services can be your best protection against the wrath of Arizona termites. Because treatment methods vary by species preventative type termite treatments can be an unnecessary expenditure and leave homeowners with a false sense of security. Applying 100s of gallons of harsh chemicals around your home is not advisable. Even in Arizona’s clay soil…pesticides have a limited (residual) shelf life.
An experienced Phoenix exterminator familiar with all species of Arizona termites can detect the subtle signs of infestation and point out areas around your home that are conducive to future infestation. Correcting these conditions and a yearly termite inspection are the best steps to stay ahead of Arizona termites.
If and when an infestation is detected it’s important to properly identify the invading species and tailoring a service based upon the species, construction type of your home and surrounding environment. Tailoring the termiticide to the proper species, soil type and surrounding environment will reduce unnecessary exposure to harsh chemicals and provide years of continued protection.
Termite Treatment – Application
Application is key. Even the best product selected specific to the right species is not effective if not properly applied. Chemical costs a big expense when doing a termite treatment. Consumers often focus on brand names when considering termiticides and little attention is given to application areas. Even the cheapest product available is more effective than the most expensive that is not correctly targeted. Phoenix exterminator services who do not recognize the different species will often sell homeowners termite treatment services that only service the outside foundation and/or offer “no drill” options. These services are sold at reduced prices based upon less termiticide applied and costs to the Phoenix exterminator. Arizona’s native species Heterotermes is the most destructive termite in the Phoenix area. Given their small size, 5-6 times smaller than other termites, they tend to nest under home foundations, abutting slabs and invade into homes from underground via stress cracks and expansion joints. Their cryptic nature can allow an infestation to go undetected for decades. Not treating abutting slabs and under the foundation can leave a homeowner with a false sense of security while their home is being secretly destroyed.
