Anthem Termite Control
“Termites love the Douglas fir that holds your home together!”
Prior to the construction of Anthem…the area was raw desert loaded with termites. New home construction has provided moisture sources, shelter from our Arizona heat, and food (the wood in your home).

As the homes in Anthem Arizona age…the initial termite barriers (pretreatments) are wearing out…no longer fending off the hordes of termites waiting to feast on your home.

Termites are a destructive wood destroying insect, causing major structural damage to homes and commercial buildings across the United States. Yearly estimates of damage run into the billions of dollars. Termites in Anthem are cryptic and large infestations can go undetected for years. It takes a trained and experienced termite inspector to detect Arizona termites.
Homes located in Anthem Arizona are more likely to see large termite infestations and the resulting damage as termites feed year round without being hampered by cold weather. Our warm winters, wet spring and monsoon seasons make ideal conditions for Arizona termites. Anthem Arizona is home to several species of termites and not all termite infestations should be treated the same. Not all termite inspectors are familiar with less common types and often miss the subtle signs of infestation. This can be a costly mistake for a homeowner. Most Anthem Termite Control exterminators are only familiar with the more common native species of subterranean termite. These termites are easily detected by the shelter tubes they construct on foundation walls or inside garages.
Detecting other termite species found in Arizona is difficult for the inexperienced termite exterminator. An undetected termite infestation can result in major structural damage and depreciate the value of your home.
Yearly Termite Inspection = Best protection

Anthem Termite control requires specialized equipment most people don’t own. From roto-hammer drills to soil treatment rods, and foamers, this equipment helps termite exterminators find and root out Arizona termites that may elude Anthem Arizona homeowners. Typically a treatment to eliminate and control termite populations involves hundreds of gallons of termiticide injected along and under a home’s foundation, underneath concrete slabs, or within foundation walls. These access points and materials are not readily accessible to the general public.
Different termite control companies will offer different treatments and warranties to deal with your Anthem Termite issue. In many cases, they should come back to retreat the affected area(s) at no extra charge. Make sure this provision is included in your termite control agreement. All liquid termiticides are supposed to last for five years when they are applied properly. Not all termiticides are the same…and a termiticide that works well in other states might not fare as well in the sandy soil of our Sonoran Desert. The actual length of time these treatments control the termite problem in your home will depend on the thoroughness of the application, the severity of the termite control issue in your area, type of termiticide used, and other conditions. Normally if swarmers are found the year after you have an exterminator come out, it’s because of human error in application and not a failure of the chemicals.
Termiticides are tested thoroughly for any effects they might have on the health of people and animals. Before any chemical can be used, it must be tested and approved by the EPA.
