How Termites Get Through A Solid Concrete Foundation
Dry Wood and Subterranean Termites go through a “swarming” period. This is when mature termites develop wings and fly. “Swarmers” leave their colony to mate, and start new colonies. These new couples are “King and Queen” of their new colony. This “Queen” Termite grows and becomes much larger than the other termites in her colony as she makes her own Colony. In our area, most subterranean termites live about 10 years.
Dry Wood Termites do not live under ground, and can set up home in your walls at any time. Lucky for us the vast majority of Termites in the Phoenix Valley are the Subterranean species.

Termidor Termite Control
At Responsible Pest Control we only use the BEST Termite products, & that is Termidor. Termidor isn’t a termite repellent. It’s totally undetectable to termites. This is key to its effectiveness, because Termidor acts like a disease. When termites eat or touch Termidor, they become “carriers”, and transfer Termidor to all other termites they contact. Then those termites 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.
Most Termites found in Phoenix & Mesa Metro areas are Subterranean Termites! Full House Termite treatments for Subterranean Termites always includes trenching, usually drilling, sometimes interior wall treatments, & is always GUARANTEED. To control these Termites we treat the ground around & under the foundation. A topical treatment (like a regular pest control treatment) will have no effect on Subterranean Termites in their protective tubes and underground. Our expert Termite Techs drill EXPANSION JOINTS, as much as possible, to save homeowners from the look of drilled concrete. Although doing a different treatment, our regular Pest Control Techs always watch out for Termite signs on our customer’s homes.
Prices for Termite jobs are calculated on the linear footage & drilling requirements.
