“There are two types of homes in Surprise Arizona…those with termites and those that will get them!”
If your home or business in Surprise doesn’t already have termites…it’s just a matter of time before they will infest. In fact as you read this hundreds of homes will come under attack. Even more frightening is that because of the cryptic nature of these critters many of infestations will not be discovered for years. Often the first evidence of a infestation is when the resulting damage becomes visible. Termites in Surprise can create thousands of dollars worth of damage repairs and reduce the resale value of a home. The demand for Surprise termite control services has increased with the growth in the area.
Surprise was once virgin Arizona desert or farm land with moderate termite pressure. Termite populations were kept in check by limited areas in the desert that provided much needed shelter, moisture and food sources. The average home built in the desert provides an abundance of the three basics needed for termites to thrive. New construction has created moisture sources, shelter from our Arizona heat, and food (the wood in your home). As a result termite populations continue to explode and the demand for Surprise Termite Control services has never been greater.
Best Protection = Surprise Termite Inspection
As the homes in Surprise Arizona 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. Experienced exterminators recommend that every home in the Surprise area be inspected at least once a year for termites. Homes that have a history or termites and/or have been recently serviced should be checked to ensure the treatment is still working. It’s not uncommon for more than one type of termite species to invade the same home and with different treatment methods needed for each species homeowners should be on alert.

Surprise termites are destructive, causing major structural damage to homes and commercial buildings. Yearly estimates of damage across the United States will easily run into the billions of dollars. Homes located in Surprise 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.
Surprise 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 treatment for native subterranean termites) has no effect on a termite infestation involving Western Dry wood Termites.
Most Surprise 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 types of termites in Surprise can be difficult for the inexperienced exterminator. An undetected termite infestation can result in structural damage and depreciate the value of your home. Getting inspections from less than experienced exterminators leaves a homeowner with a false sense of security and is a recipe for a future disaster.
Homeowners in Surprise 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.
Termite Treatment Surprise Arizona
If and 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. Hiring the best termite treatment Surprise Arizona service will require doing a little online investigating.
Effectively getting rid of termites in Surprise requires a specialized set of 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.
Proper Surprise 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 Surprise 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 Surprise Termite Control service can be a complex decision. There are hundreds of termite exterminators in Metro Phoenix.
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. While picking the right termiticide for the job is important consumers should not be sidetracked. Application is critical. Choosing the “best” termiticide is of little value if it is not mixed and/or applied properly. In fact using the cheapest product available applied properly will offer superior protection than the best product improperly mixed and/or not applied in the right locations.
