Signs of a Termite Infestation can be a bit hard to spot, so we offer FREE Termite Inspection Phoenix to homeowners (fee for escrow). Homeowners often call us when they discover a mud tube going up a foundation, poking through a wall or ceiling, or when they see flying termites “swarming” around their home.

Most termites in Phoenix Arizona Metro Areas, are Subterranean Termites. Subterranean Termites live in huge colonies as deep as 50 feet underground. These Termites travel hundreds of feet to find a home to feed on. (So if your neighbors have Termites… Watch out!)
To exterminate Termites in Phoenix we treat the ground around & under the foundation, because topical treatments (like regular pest control treatments) will have no effect on Subterranean Termites in their protective tubes or underground. A Full House Subterranean Termite treatment always includes trenching, usually drilling, and sometimes interior wall treatments. Expert Termite professionals drill EXPANSION JOINTS, as much as possible, to save homeowners from the look of drilled concrete around their home.
The BEST Termite product is Termidor. Termidor isn’t a termite repellent, and is totally undetectable to termites. This makes Termidor VERY effective, because Termidor works like an insect disease. When termites eat or touch Termidor, they become “carriers”, and transfer Termidor to all the other termites they come in contact with. Those termites then become “carriers”, and so on. Termidor is a slow acting product so that the “carrier” termites have time to pass it on to their entire Termite Colony before they die themselves.
Because Responsible Pest Control’s Termite Treatment is always GUARANTEED, we only use the BEST Products. There are lots of termite control products available, but the best is Termidor SC. Termidor is not a termite repellent. It is undetectable to termites. This is key to its effectiveness! Termidor acts like a disease. When a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it becomes a “carrier”, transferring Termidor to every other termite it comes in contact with. Then those termite become “carriers”. Termidor is slow acting so that the “carrier” termites have time to pass it on to their entire population before dying themselves. This process devastates the entire termite colony!
Most homes in Arizona are pre-treated for Termites during construction, and depending on the products used, should last about 5 years. The State of Arizona requires that the pre-treat Termite Company guarantee your home for 5 years. Unfortunately, Termites often show up before the five years are up, so Termite Inspections are important prior to the end of your warranty. We recommend getting a Termite Treatment for Subterranean Termites every three to five years thereafter.
Most Termites in our valley are Subterranean Termites that live deep underground; this is important to understand when considering how to control Termites. Subterranean Termites come up through “mud tubes” (they make from their fecal matter) to find food on buildings and homes. To control these Termites we have to treat the ground around and under your foundation. A topical treatment (like a regular pest control treatment) will have no effect on Subterranean Termites in their protective tubes and underground. Our Subterranean Termite service always includes trenching, usually drilling, sometimes interior wall treatments, and is always GUARANTEED. Although doing a different treatment, our regular Pest Control Techs are always watching out for Termite signs on our Pest Control customer’s homes.
Prices for Termite jobs are calculated on the linear footage and drilling requirements.
We offer a FREE Termite Inspection to homeowners, fee applies for escrow.
