“Dampwood Termites…Arizona’s most misidentified species.” 

Dampwood termites are truly the most unusual termite species found in Arizona. Like other types of termites in Arizona…left unchecked they can cause extensive structural damage to a home. Damp wood termites found in other parts of the country easily survive in the rich moist soil found in the eastern half of the United States.

One would think this species would find it difficult to survive in the dry Arizona clay soil. Yet they thrive. Colonies can be found along river washes attacking native trees and bushes. Interestingly this species is the most misidentified termite in Arizona.

Dampwood termites infest all types of wood at or below ground level throughout the greater Phoenix area. It sometimes girdles young citrus trees and grapevines below the soil line in desert areas along washes. In the Phoenix area, it attacks living trees, wood poles, fences, and bushes. They can be a problem for citrus groves that use irrigation for watering. Damp wood termites are a pest to the logging industry, infesting moist timbers that are in contact with soil. Untreated posts, poles, and fences are attacked below ground level and infestations are not noted until severe damage occurs.

Dampwood termite infestationDampwood termites like other species feed on all types of wood and seem to prefer the softwood used in home construction. Unlike subterranean termites, this species does not build mud shelter tubes above the ground in order to reach the wood. Homes with crawl spaces and excess moisture seem to attract infestations. Damp wood termite colonies extend from the wood into or below the soil, they sometimes kill living shrubs and trees, frass is cone-shaped rather than cylindrical, and the termites produce a pungent odor.

Because this subterranean termite does not build conventional mud tubes along the foundation detection requires years of experience and training. Subtle signs of infestation are often overlooked by the typical termite inspector. When damage wood is found inspectors often assume they are dealing with Desert Termites.

Arizona Dampwood Termite Exterminator

Arizona Dampwood TermitesTreatment methods can vary depending upon the location of infestation and severity. Treatment methods should be specific to this species as other types of services may not stop the infestation and leave homeowners with a false sense of security. All treatments should include correcting wood in contact with soil and reducing moisture in the soil. In addition to correcting conditions conducive to infestation, consumers are advised to have their homes inspected at least once a year by a trained and experienced termite inspector. Free termite inspections can be ordered @ 602.308.4510 – #1 Arizona Dampwood Termite Exterminator.

Testimonials

    5 star review  They came early which was great! Ryan did a very thorough inspection for termites in which he verified that we did and inspected for other little critters. They quoted us a very good price for the service and had a very excellent warranty. We went ahead and chose Bill's they showed up early again and did everything that they quoted. I highly recommend Bill's Pest Control very professional and courteous will renew in the coming years

    5 star review  I have used Bill’s Pest Control for approximately 10 years. I found them when I realized I had termites in my home. They were on top of that situation FAST. That problem was stopped! They help me out with general pest control as well. That was the reason for today’s visit. At the end of the month the yearly termite inspection and update for termites will be taken care of. Cannot praise this company enough, I’ve recommended them to friends. One friend switched exterminators because Bill’s Pest was focused and reasonable in price. I’m not focused on price, even though I appreciate that immensely. I trust their expertise.

    5 star review  Bill's Pest and Termite Control is awesome! I'm finalizing a VA refinance and the lender informed me on short notice that I had to arrange for a termite inspection using a specific form. Bridget from Bill's was able to come out the next day, they were familiar with the form the VA needed. They are certified, prompt, friendly and reasonably-priced. Thankfully no termites were found but Bridget was able to show me where the prior owner had done treatment and tell me how thorough it was. If I ever need treatment this is who I'll call for certain!
