The most common termite found in the Queen Creek area is the Subterranean Termite. They live in large colonies that can be up to 50 feet underground. Constantly looking for food, they tunnel up into your foundation through “mud tubes” and will eventually appear in a ceiling or wall within your Queen Creek building.

Normal pest control will have no effect on the underground tubes of termites. A specialized termite treatment may include trenching, drilling and interior wall termite treatment if termites have been discovered within your Queen Creek home or business.

A professional termite treatment will also include a specialized insecticide that is effective on subterranean termites and other termites that are typically found in the Queen Creek area. This liquid termite treatment is ingested and shared, and will eventually kill the invading termites.

A complete termite inspection is recommended because termite infestations can be difficult to detect by the Queen Creek home or business owner. With a professional termite inspection, you will be informed of the kind of termite found, the recommended termite treatment, and the steps necessary to eliminate termites from your Queen Creek property.

The termite inspection will also identify areas around your Queen Creek property that are conducive to termites. Termite control also includes taking precautionary measures such as:

  • Keeping landscaping mulch well below the siding and wood parts of your building
  • Remove any dead stumps, trees, or roots that are near the foundation
  • Do not store lumber, firewood or paper products (cardboard) next to the foundation
  • Keep water away from foundation by diverting lawn and garden sprinklers
