Termites cause over $5 billion in documented damage each year in the United States. It is likely that the number is actually higher than that. However, homeowner insurance routinely excludes termite damage so insurance will not pay for treatment or repairs. Most people list their homes as their single largest investment and termite infestation and damage can be devastating. With our mild winters, wet spring and monsoon season Arizona is no exception to termite damage. Arizona has a national reputation when it comes to termite infestations and damage.
Vistancia termite colonies work 24 hours a day, and signs of termite infestations can go undiscovered by unsuspecting homeowners until serious damage is done. Because homeowners insurance does not cover termite damage, termite detection and continued Vistancia termite treatment are the best ways to help protect your property.
Bill’s Termite Control Vistancia service recommends that every home be inspected for termites once a year.
Telltale signs of infestation will vary by species of termite. Not all termites are the same and Arizona is home to at least 17 species of termites. For drywood termites, found generally in wood trim or framing, homeowners might notice pellets or droppings of termites. These are small ridged light wood colored pellets. They might fall from walls, window or door frames. For subterranean termites, a swarm or winged termites emerging within a structure is a sign that an infestation is nearby. As subterranean termites build mud tubes to enter a building, these straw like tubes from the structure to the ground indicate an infestation, past or present. For the imported Formosan termite, “carton” or mud structures within a wall indicate an infestation. Desert termites are often found on wood fences, or tree trunks outside of your home. It is best to have a professional pest control inspector look at any potential infestation to determine if it is a termite issue and whether it is active.
