El Mirage Termite Control
“There are two types of homes in El Mirage Arizona…those with termites and those that are gonna get termites!”
Most of El Mirage was once virgin desert or farm land with moderate termite pressure. Construction has created moisture sources, shelter from our Arizona heat, and food (the wood in your home). As a result termite populations in El Mirage are exploding.
As the homes in El Mirage age…the initial protective barrier(s) or pretreatments are wearing out…no longer fending off the hordes of termites waiting to feast on your home or business.
Bill’s El Mirage Termite Control service recommends that every home in Arizona should be inspected at least once a year for termites. Order your FREE TERMITE INSPECTION today.
Homes located in El Mirage Arizona are more likely to see large termite infestations and the resulting damage as termites feed year round (24/7/365) unhampered by cold weather or ground freeze.
El Mirage is home to several species of termites and not all infestations should be treated the same. For example treating the soil around a home (standard for treatment for native subterranean termites) has no effect on a termite infestation involving Western Drywood Termites.
Most El Mirage Termite Control exterminators are only familiar with the more common native species of subterranean termite. These termites are easily detected by the shelter tubes constructed on foundation walls or inside garages.
Detecting other termite species found in Arizona can be difficult for the inexperienced exterminator. An undetected termite infestation can result in structural damage and depreciate the value of your home.
Homeowners in El Mirage should have their homes inspected at least once a year by a trained and experience termite inspector. Catching a termite infestation early can save the cost of expensive damage repair and maintain a home’s resale value.
When termites are found it’s important that a complete termite treatment with an effective product be done early in the infestation. Maintaining a continuous protective barrier minimizes the chance(s) of re-infestation, while using an effective termiticide ensures a lasting treatment.
Effectively getting rid of termites in El Mirage requires a specialized set of termite skills. Thorough knowledge and experience is required to know where the likeliest entry points are in your home. Many of these entry points are hidden and hard to access.
Termite control requires specialized equipment most people don’t own. From rotary hammer drills to soil treatment rods, and foamers, this equipment helps termite exterminators find and root out Arizona termites that may elude El Mirage homeowners.
Typically a service 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.
Choosing a El Mirage termite control exterminator can be a complex decision. There are hundreds of termite exterminators in Metro Phoenix alone.
Different termite control companies will offer different treatments and warranties to deal with your 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.
Many liquid termiticides can last for five years or more when properly applied. Not all termiticides are the same…a termiticide that works well in other states may not fare so 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 in 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 and the State of Arizona.
Rather than focus solely on the price of a termite service Arizona homeowners need to be aware of what termiticide is being applied around their home, how and why.
