When it comes to termite damage…Arizona has a national reputation. That reputation may well be deserved as at least 17 different types thrive in the Phoenix area including the most destructive species found in North America. With so many different types of termites the attack can come from above ground, via flight, be imported, or they can tunnel in from below. Everyday 1000s of unsuspecting home and business owners come under attack. Because of the cryptic nature of many of these species an infestation can go years…or decades before being discovered. Typically the first sign of infestation is when hidden damage becomes visible. Unfortunately termites will not differentiate a business from a home…if it has wood termites will likely attack. The demand for Commercial termite control services in the Phoenix area is healthy.
Every home in Arizona should be inspected at least once a year for termites…so should places of business and commercial properties. Arizona termites do not distinguish residential properties from commercial. If there is cellulose material (wood) available termites will eventually invade. A common misconception is that commercial buildings are primarily block, concrete and/or metal studs which is a deterrent to termites. Arizona termites are resourceful and will attack the paper on drywall, furniture or a wood ceiling 30 feet high when no other opportunities to eat can be found.
Commercial Termite Inspection = Best Protection
The best protection against damage is to have a yearly commercial termite inspection from an experienced exterminator. Consumers should be selective about who they use for the inspection. Most inspectors have the experience to associate dirt tubes constructed along a foundation as evidence of the more common subterranean termites. Few can tell the differences in subterranean termites, distinquish cricket droppings from Western Dry wood fecal pellets, or spot the subtle signs of infestation by less common species. Depending upon an inexperienced termite inspector can be a recipe for disaster and leave a consumer with a false sense of security. Structures recently treated or with a history of termites should be inspected yearly to ensure the service is still effective and that another species has not invaded.
Commercial properties and places of business present special challenges as tenants and/or employees often do not notice evidence of termite infestation. Active infestations can be hidden by stored items or occurring in areas that see little human traffic.
Commercial Termite Treatment
When an infestation is discovered careful consideration should be given to commercial termite treatment methods and termiticides. Nobody wants their already busy work days interrupted by sound of a rotary hammer pounding concrete or by having to move office furniture. Customers and employees do not want to be in the general area that termiticides are being applied. It takes a true professional with years of experience to know how to effectively eliminate a termite infestation in the safest, most effective method with minimal interruption.
Not all termites are the same. In fact termites come in all sizes, shapes, colors and types. Other than sharing a general classification most species are quite unique. Just as termites are different, so will be the methods necessary to eliminate an infestation. Treating the soil along the foundation of a building provides little, if any protection from Western Dry wood termites that infest exposed wood via flight. That same treatment will do little to stop Damp wood termites or native subterranean termites that tunnel in from underground.
Before considering any commercial termite treatment services it is important to properly indentify the invading species. Keep in mind that it is not uncommon for more than one species to attack the same structure. By properly indentifying the invading species an experienced exterminator can tailor a service specific to the type of termite(s), construction type of the building and surround environment.
Business and commercial property owners face a magnitude of liabilities everyday and the last thing they want to deal with is exposure to harsh pesticides by their customers and/or employees. Proper identification of the invading species can minimize unnecessary exposure with the use of baits, green products and exclusion techniques. Completely treating a large commercial building can be expensive and unnecessary. Finding a trusted exterminator is a win-win for any commercial property owner.
