Scottsdale Termite Control
Most of Scottsdale Arizona was raw virgin desert loaded with termites. New construction has provided moisture sources, shelter from our Arizona heat, and food (the wood in your home or business). As a result termite populations in Scottsdale have exploded.
Bills Scottsdale Termite Control recommends that every home in Scottsdale should be inspected at least once a year for termites. We offer FREE yearly termite inspections.
Termites are a highly 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.
Homes located in Scottsdale Arizona are more likely to see large termite infestations and the resulting damage as termites feed year round unhampered by cold weather or freezing temperatures.
Scottsdale Arizona is home to several species of Arizona termites and not all infestations should be treated the same. For example treating the soil around a home (standard for native subterranean termites) has no effect on a termite infestation involving Western Dry wood Termites.
Most Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale Arizona 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 critical that a complete termite treatment with an effective product be done early in the infestation. A complete termite treatment minimizes the chance(s) of re-infestation, while using an effective termiticide ensures a lasting treatment.
Effectively getting rid of termites in Scottsdale Arizona requires a specialized set of termite skills and equipment. Thorough knowledge and experience is required to know where the likeliest entry points are in your home. Many of these points are hidden and/or difficult to properly access.
Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale 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.
Choosing a Scottsdale Termite Control service can be a challenging. There are hundreds of termite exterminators in Metro Phoenix.
Scottsdale Termite Control exterminators may offer differing treatments methods and warranties to deal with your Termite infestation. In all 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 claim to last for five years when they are applied properly. 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 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. If swarmers are found within 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.
