Need to know about Termite treatments ? If you live in Arizona it’s just a matter of time before you will learn all you need to know about termite treatments. Everyday 1000s of homes come under attack from these micro sized wood eating insects. Even more frightening is that many of these infestations will go months, years or even decades before they are discovered.
To most consumers all termites are the same and they (termites) are hell bent on destroying every home they attack. In the real world there are different types of termites. Some are very destructive and if given free rein will destroy a home in no time at all. Other types…not so much. In fact not all types of termites will be a threat to your home and it’s important to know the differences before shelling out thousands of dollars on a needless treatment.
Because each species is so different effective treatment methods must be specific to the right type of termites. Treating the soil around the foundation of a home has no impact on a species that nests inside deep within infested wood. Fumigating infested wood only provides temporary relief from subterranean type termites.
Before considering any service it’s important to know about termite treatments and which species is invading your home.

The goal of a Subterranean termite chemical treatment is to establish a continuous termiticide barrier between the termite colony (usually in the soil) and wood in a building. This is done by placing termiticide in the soil on both sides of all foundation elements to provide a barrier preventing termites from entering the structure. Technicians trench the soil and inject termiticide beneath it at 16-inch intervals. They also drill into hollow masonry block foundations and inject termiticide into the block voids. This creates a protective barrier around the property, which is generally good for 5-7 years.
