subterranean termites

Arizona Subterranean Termites Phoenix Az – Subterranean termites are the most common and economically important wood-destroying organisms in Arizona. Subterranean termites are closely associated with the soil habitat where they excavate a network of tunnels through the soil to reach water and food. These termites need moisture to survive. The most frequently seen subterranean termites are the workers, soldiers, and the reproductive.  In fact 90% of the termite service calls we receive involve one of the subterranean species.

Subterranean termites feed on materials that contain cellulose, primarily dead wood and wood by-products. Only the worker termite caste can digest timber by the use of symbiotic protozoa in their gut. Worker termites feed their partly digested semi-liquid food, regurgitated from their mouth or passing from their anus, to the other termites, a process known as trophallaxis.

Worker termites are white and soft bodied. Their responsibility is to find food for the rest of the colony. They form shelter tubes, or mud tubes, over the surface of foundation walls to travel back and forth from the nest to the infested wood. These tubes are also used to keep them moist, and as protection against ants.
Soldiers resemble worker termites, except that they have enlarged brownish heads and strong, well-developed jaws. Soldiers defend the colony from invaders, primarily ants.

Free Inspections, Evaluations & Second Opinions

Subterranean Termites are the most common type to attack a home in Arizona.”

Reproductive’s (also called swarmers) can be winged, primary reproductive’s called alates or swarmers or wingless, secondary reproductive’s. Winged reproductive’s have 1/4 to 3/8 inch long pale yellow-brown to black bodies and bear four wings of equal size that may be smokey gray to brown and have few wing veins. Reproductive termites are the ones most often confused with flying ants.

    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!

    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.
