Most termite colonies will grow to a size that can cause serious damage to your home in about five years. When a termite infestation is left unchecked, the structural damage they cause can cost a small fortune to repair. If you are a homeowner concerned about protecting your home against termite infestations, you may be wondering what termite treatment options are available and which one is the best for you. They type of treatment you need, however, will largely depend on the type of termites you have in your home. Below are just two of the many options for termite treatment available to you.
Subterranean Termite Treatment
The Subterranean Termite is the most common termite found in Arizona – and the most destructive. Subterranean termites live in underground colonies and dig tunnels, often called “mud tubes,” which serve as passageways to food sources in your home. This species of termite has the capability of collapsing an entire structure, which can be devastating for homeowners. Subterranean Termite treatment involves the placement of liquid bait at entry and infestation sites throughout your home. Termites that ingest the bait will then share it with other termites in their underground colony, offering effective Subterranean Termite control.
Drywood Termite Treatment
While not the most common termite in Arizona, Drywood Termites can also be highly destructive. This type of termite can enter your home through cracks around window and door frames, under roof shingles or through attic vents. Once in your home, the Drywood Termite can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your home. Applied directly onto the wood or injected into it, Drywood Termite treatment is the most effective way to control current infestations and prevent future infestations of this type of termite.
