Is Your Home Under Attack?

August 30, 2012

With the onset of the monsoon season Tucson residents and surrounding areas are experiencing the typical surge in termite activity. Every year during the rainy season (July-September) Tucson residents can count on a few things; Storms and wind damage, flash floods, and the ominous presence of termite swarms.

The Desert Subterranean Termite (Heterotermes Aureus) typically swarms at night after rainfall when moist soil and high humidity offer the best chance for survival. During a swarm the male and female termites pair off and excavate a tunnel or cavity where they begin reproducing and building their new colony. Termites are more than capable of exploiting even the tiniest of cracks in your home and turning your dream house into a nightmare. A mature colony of desert subterranean termites numbers around 300,000 termites, each working around the clock to ensure their survival!

The only remedy to protect your structure is to have a full comprehensive treatment program performed on your home.
