Every year in the United States, termite damage cost property owners over $5 billion dollars, at an average cost of each repair at $3,300. And, unfortunately, termites are more active in warmer temperatures, and active year round in Arizona. Arizona residents are at a moderate-to-high risk of experiencing a termite infestation from one or more of the three types of termites in this area: subterranean, drywood, and dampwood termites.
In addition to termites, Arizonans can experience infestations from scorpions, pigeons, weeds, rodents, mosquitoes, cockroaches, spiders, ants, and other undesirables. All of these variables affect the health and safety of a property. For example, cockroaches spoil food with their feces saliva and leave an odor that can aggravate allergies and trigger asthma attacks. Finally their bodies also transport dangerous microbes. As disease-carriers, pests pose a risk to all inhabitants of an infested property.
Because there are various types of each species, a pest control professional is essential in determining the type of pest and how to treat it. A pest control professional uses tools and scientific solutions to get to the root of the problem to thoroughly, efficiently, and affordably treat the issue. No matter the pest, a professional should be employed.
