Termites – more specifically, Subterranean Termites – are a huge problem and big business here in the Surprise AZ area. Believe it or not, termites are the cause of more property damage than earthquakes, tornadoes and fires combined. Termites love to eat wood but they’ll also eat just about anything else that contains cellulose, too. Photos, Christmas decorations, filed paperwork, furniture – the list goes on and on. Often they’re there eating your stuff before you even know it. Having a professional termite inspection annually is really a great way to stay 1 step ahead of termites and the damages they cause. Providing you have a reputable, detail oriented termite company do the inspection, that is.

It’s said that for every human on the planet Earth there are 1000 pounds of termites. Within the state of Arizona it’s estimated that there are 3-5 termite colonies per acre of land. It may be upwards to 18 per acre in the Tucson area. With each colony being home to as many as 100,000 individual termites the numbers are just about staggering. On top of that, termites eat 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Termite damage can add up pretty quickly if left undetected.

They build what’s called shelter tubes so they can extend that environment from their underground nest out to their work area. Shelter tubes can show up just about anywhere in your home or business. They are often found coming up the garage walls from the floor or hanging straight down from the ceiling. These tubes look like dirt and are usually about the same size around as a pencil, though they can be much larger.
