How to control Termites Phoenix?
Termites date back more than 120 million years to the time of the dinosaurs. They are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage – costs that aren’t covered by homeowners’ insurance policies.
*There are two types of homes in Arizona: those that have termites and those that will have termites.
Finding new chemicals to battle against these universal pests has been a long, expensive struggle, according to Paul Baker, entomologist at the University of Arizona, who has devoted his career to fighting termites.
It can cost up to $75 million to get a new termiticide registered with the federal government, he said. Another problem, homeowners generally want a product that kills termites for years, not months. *Quote from Azcentral
