Colder Weather Means Termite Season in AZ

Varsity Termite and Pest Control Services in Phoenix AZ

Termites in warmer climates can often be a nuisance all year round, but colder weather could mean even more termites. Termite season is usually in cold temperatures in the fall or winter because termites, like all insects, are cold-blooded: below temperatures of 25 degrees Fahrenheit, a termite can die within just a few minutes. Because of this, as temperatures drop below 50 degrees, termites will begin searching for the warmer areas, such as burrowing underground (some as many as three feet underground), finding dead tree stumps to hibernate in, or– alternately– inside your building. Unfortunately, the basements often approach the optimal temperature for termites, and so if there are any that are nearby, they will attempt to inhabit and ultimately infest the home or business where they have taken up residence.

Termite Problems in Phoenix Solved By Experience

Because of Phoenix’s unique climate, termite control in Phoenix is trickier than often assumed. Termites are in an optimal position to breed: the temperature gets cold enough to spur biological drives in termites to turn towards human habitations but rarely gets cold enough to kill them. This means that termites can become a recurring problem for local residents. A Phoenix termite control company with the right experience in the field understands the difficulty of eradicating termites from a home or business and knows how to ensure they do nott come back.
