These little critters cause billions of dollars in damage each year across the country. Arizona unfortunately is not exempt from them. More often than not, standard homeowners insurance does not cover termite damage, so it is wise to be proactive in getting professional help regarding termite control and removal. Both the monetary drain and the thought of thousands of winged termites emerging inside your home can be very stressful. While termites primarily feed on wood, they also damage insulation, paper, book, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. When buying or selling a home, the issue of termites becomes especially important as the sale is normally conditional on a termite inspection/infestation report.
Discovering winged termites indoors almost always indicates an infestation whichwarrants termite treatment. Ants are often confused with termites, which often swarm at the same time of year. You can tell the difference as termites have straight antennae, uniform waist and wings of equal size (ants have elbowed antennae, constricted waists and forewings that are longer than the hind wings).
Evidence of mud tunneling in, under, and over foundation walls, support piers, sill plates, floor joists, etc. is a clear sign of subterranean termites. These mud tubes are typically about the diameter of a pencil and can sometimes be thicker. Varsity advises for removal of mud tunnels and cellulose debris by a professional termite control company.
Wood that is damaged, has dark or blistering surfaces, or is very thin and easily bendable or breakable may also be a sign of drywood termite infestation. Termite-damaged wood is usually hollowed out along the grain, with bits of dried mud or soil lining the feeding galleries. Wood damaged by other insects such as carpenter ants or by moisture will not have this appearance. A termite inspection is recommended.
