Termites in Estrella Mountain
Native Subterranean Termites are one of the most destructive insects in Goodyear and present the biggest threat to your most prized possession…your home. Across the United States they do billions of dollars in damage. In nature Termites serve as housekeepers of the desert, consuming and breaking down dead decaying wood. In the urban environment, these termites feed on the wood in the home including lumber, drywall paper, cardboard, furniture, or any cellulose material. Your home is an ideal food source for termites. In addition, many home’s watering systems serve as a much needed moisture source for termites. Abutting slabs provide shelter from the desert heat and quick access to your home. Wood left on the ground will attract termites to your home.
Termite inspection in Estrella Mountain
Typical evidence of termite activity is identified by the mud shelter tubes that termites build. These tubes are used as roadways into the structure for termites to forage on the wood and return to the soil where they live. Shelter tubes typically can be found on the exterior stem wall, interior drywall, or drop down from the ceiling. Upon discovery of termite activity a termite treatment will need to be done in order to protect the home.

Treatment of termites will depend upon the construction of the home, species of invading termite(s) and surrounding environment.
