Identifying the Subterranean Termite

When it comes to Phoenix termite control, the most dangerous termite species which Phoenixtermite companies deal with is the subterranean termite. This is because they are extremely destructive and have the ability to completely decimate a building. Whether you think you have a drywood or subterranean termite infestation, you should always contact AZ termite control to deal with these harmful pests.

Where are subterranean termites generally found?

As their name suggests, subterranean termite colonies are usually found underground in the soil. Phoenix termite control companies have also found them aboveground in moist areas. Phoenix termite specialists have discovered subterranean termites in desert plants around homes, as well. Any place where wood comes in to contact with soil is a likely place for subterranean termites to be found.

What are some signs I might have a subterranean termite infestation?

One of the main things an AZ termite control company will look for is the presence of mud tubes. Subterranean termites build mud tubes in order to travel from the soil, where they live, to parts of the building used as a food source. You may also notice damage to the wood, in the form of honeycomb-like holes riddled with feces. Unfortunately, waiting until you notice wood damage to call a Phoenix termite control company is a bad idea. By the time wood damage is visible, you already have an extensive infestation.

When do termite infestations usually occur in the year?

Subterranean termites often swarm in the spring, or whenever it’s mildly warm outside. Because of the size of termite colonies and the destruction they can cause, you should always contact a Phoenix termiteexterminator in order to deal with any suspected termite infestation. If you deal with the colony incorrectly, it could rapidly spread throughout your home and infect previously unaffected areas.

What do subterranean termites look like?

The subterranean termite is a pale yellow-brown color approximately 10 mm long. Because of their very small size, the subterranean termite is often found in places the drywood termite is unable to get to.

If you suspect a termite infestation in your home, be it drywood or subterranean, contact an AZ termite control company as soon as possible.
