Why Termites in Arizona?

What is it about the climate in Arizona that brings termites out? The mild climate makes our homes a haven for termites. The heat will actually bring out the scorpions and termites in large amounts, making it challenging to stay on top of pest control. There are four different termite species that live in Arizona, and they tend to strike in the fall. The weather cools down just enough to bring the termites out, which can lead to serious concerns for homeowners. Hiring termite control in Mesa is the best option as they can spray in areas of the home where termites often explore. Most termites create mud tubes through your home until they find wood.

Spraying for Termites

Since the termites tend to get worse in August, it is best to hire Varsity termite and pest control early. If you are building a new home, it is important to call pest control services early. The termites can easily attack new developments as the areas are rarely sprayed before the homes are constructed. Some contractors will use chemicals to destroy pests in the area before they pour the foundation, but not all companies follow this procedure.

The chemicals used to kill termites in new homes end up wearing off after five years. Mesa termite control companies provide modern sprays that destroy new termite populations in the area. Annual termite inspections is the best way to examine the home to search for signs of termites and other pests like spiders and scorpions. The garage and walls of the home are the most popular areas for termites to explore and get into the home. You may be able to see the termite mud tubes as they are usually tan or pale in color and they are build around the inside of the garage or on the exterior of your home.

Why Hire Exterminators?

A professional Mesa termite company will be able to drill into the ground or sidewalks to locate termite nests and will insert liquid termicide into the holes. This is a great way to treat the termites and destroy them before they get into your home.
