“Who in their right mind would buy a home in Chandler without getting a good termite inspection?”
When it comes to termite destruction…Arizona has a national reputation. When you consider that more than 17 different species can be found across the state and we are home to one of the most destructive species found in the United States…that reputation may be well deserved. If you hang around long enough you will likely hear the ole “there are two types of homes in Arizona…those with and those that are going to get termites.”
Mild winter temperatures combined with our monsoon season and spring rains make ideal conditions for termites to thrive. In the uninhabited desert areas termite populations are kept in check by limited resources such as moisture, shelter and food sources. That balance rapidly tips in favor of termites when subdivisions are constructed. Homes provide an abundance of moisture, shelter and food sources for nesting termites. With each new subdivision comes an increase in the demand for termite control services.
