The Valley of The Sun we have two types of termites: Drywood Termites (not common, but they do occur) and Subterranean Termites (which are widespread and plentiful).
Drywood Termites do not need contact with the soil. They swarm (known as a nuptial flight) termites pair off. They are poor flyers and usually end up literally where the breeze takes them. Finding dead wood, they bore into it starting a new colony. The development of a Drywood colony takes years, once established they can create damage. Since they do not require contact with the soil they must be treated where they live, in the wood. Wood members have to be accessible to treatment or fumigation may be required.
Subterranean Termites, unlike Drywood, need contact with the soil. They colonize in the soil and make exploratory tunnels (this protects them from the elements and predators). Once they locate dead wood, worker termites ingest the wood, returning to the colony feeding other termites through regurgitation. Since Subterranean Termites live in the soil they can be treated by a soil application.
In addition, subterranean termites can be monitored by placing monitoring stations around the home, these stations contain an active bait that controls and kills subterranean termites.
We offer inspections, treatments, annual warranty protection and the knowledge to present you with your options. When it comes to termites, nobody cares like we do.
