Termites can seriously damage the material that makes up your home, no matter where you live. The desert subterranean termite and other native desert termites are nasty and destructive pests that plague homes all over Arizona, including North Phoenix and the Desert Ridge area.
If you know the signs and have seen the damage, termite control may seem like a daunting problem to take on. It could also seem like a daunting addition to your finances as well. But termites do not operate on our schedules, financial situations, or plans. Taking care of termites via a thorough and effective termite treatment early is the absolute best route to take.
The best first step to implementing an effective Desert Ridge termite treatment is to track down and identify the infestation. You may not find clear and obvious evidence of an infestation right away, but a thorough investigation could be helpful. The first place to look for wood damage is usually in crawlspaces or basements. Since most North Phoenix homes do not have basements, you may have to thoroughly investigate your attic or wherever exposed wood on your property may be present. Implement all of the above bullet points to effectively check for the presence of termites.
Before calling an Arizona termite extermination service, you can try introducing beneficial nematodes to your soil. Nematodes are a type of worm that are parasitic and target most pests. Nematodes can be purchased online or at some garden stores.

Another option could be the use of boric acid. Boric acid is an effective termite treatment that is sprayed on wood and left outside as bait. Boric acid will kill most termites that interact with it. Boric acid is a dangerous poison that should be handled with care and can cause serious skin irritations and other health risks if used improperly.
