“Mesa Arizona is home to one of the most destructive termite species in North America.”
Mesa is Arizona’s third largest city and like its neighbor to the north shares a national reputation for having destructive termites. All 17 species of Arizona termites can be found throughout Mesa including the most destructive termite species found in North America
It’s often said that there are only two kinds of houses in Mesa Arizona, those with a termite problem and those about to get them. Sooner or later almost every homeowner will need some type of Mesa termite treatment service. Most every home will have a need for Termite Control in Mesa Az services.
Everyday hundreds of homes come under attack from Mesa termites. Even more frightening is that many of these infestations will go years, and maybe a decade before the resulting damage signals they are under attack. Give Mesa termites shelter from the Arizona sun, an ample water supply and some wood to eat in a sheltered environment like your home and they will thrive.
Homes in Mesa provide an abundance of the three essentials that termites need to thrive. Shelter, moisture and a food source (wood). Block and/or brick homes are not immune to attack. Homes with stored items and/or plants growing along the foundation provide nesting opportunities for colonies needing to stay out of direct sunlight and intense summer heat. Watering systems to promote plant growth are a great source for moisture. Food sources include wood that is on or in contact with the soil. Cellulose material including wood provides termite colonies with much needed nutrients. Inside the typical home are wood framing, furniture and drywall that termites can feast upon.
Mesa Termite Inspections
As homeowners become aware of the threat termites pose it’s only natural that they want to devise a proactive plan. Getting a preventative treatment to stop termites before they attack is not that simple. Depending upon the species termites can attack from outside along a foundation, fly or be imported into a home, or tunnel in from underneath. Just as termite species are different so are the means to protect your home. Unfortunately there is not one type of treatment that 100% protects a home from attack. Consumers paying for preventative type services are only partially protected, may be needlessly exposed to harsh pesticides and left with a false sense of security. The best protection against termite destruction is to get a yearly Mesa termite inspections by an experienced exterminator familiar with all types of termites. To avoid becoming another property damage statistic, it is recommended to call an experience Mesa exterminator. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security, even though, they’re tiny, termites create more destruction annually than fires, storms and flooding combined.

It takes a trained and experienced termite inspector to detect all species of termites and recognize the signs of hidden damage. Almost all termite inspectors in Mesa are familiar with the more common native species subterranean termites…few have the experience to recognize the presence of damp wood termites or Western Dry wood termites. Catching termites early in their infestation can save a home from major structural damage.
Mesa Termites Treatment
Since not all termites in Mesa are the same, the methods used to eliminate them will vary by species. “Cookie-cutter” Mesa termites treatment services can be a waste of hard earned dollars and needless exposure to harsh chemicals. Consumers can get easily sidetracked in their efforts to get rid of termites by focusing on what product will the exterminator use.
Termites are sensitive and generally easy to kill. Even using the “best” product is of little value if it is not mixed and/or applied properly. Application is key. Even the cheapest product available and labeled for the specific species will provide better protection than the best product improperly applied. In general all termiticides approved for use will kill termites. Differences in products are often the “mode of action.” To consumers that is how they kill termites. Educated consumers are more concerned with “will it kill them.” The simple answer is yes…all termiticides will kill the specific species it is labeled for. The important difference in products is residual. A cheaper product that lasts 10-15 years is a better value than paying for a “premium” product that only lasts 3-5 years.
In an ideal world, termites would only eat one variety of wood, and we could build our homes appropriately. It would merely be a matter of reducing wood in building construction or leaving little feed stations in the yard to keep termites off our home. However, termites also eat many other materials including: drywall, furniture, carpet, paintings, baseboards, trim, books and paper records. The end result of termite infestation is ultimately wood and property damage. Termites can cause entire structures to cave in. Obviously by the time this happens, it’s already too late. It is a far better idea to get on the phone to a Mesa exterminator and have a termite inspection done to detect a problem before it gets worse.
Because of the level of damage they can cause, termites can be a costly and dangerous pest. Termites damage approximately half a million homes in the U.S. each year, and cost anywhere from two to five billion dollars in repair costs for the damage. The average Mesa termite treatment runs between $500-$1000, depending upon the type of termites and size of the home. Termites can create that much in damage practically overnight. If you have…or suspect termites don’t panic the first step is to get a termite inspection by an experienced exterminator who can properly identify the type of invading termites and determine if a treatment is necessary.
