Here are the 3 major signs you have termites in your home

Termites can cause thousands of dollars in property damage in a short amount of time, causing them to be one of a homeowner’s worst nightmares. These small insects eat wood and can cause substantial damage to the structure of a building. Termite damage typically is not detected immediately, but there are 3 major signs you have termites in your home. We’ll review these signs in this blog post.

Checking your home periodically for signs of termites could help you discover an infestation before the damage becomes severe. Of course, the best way to know for sure that you do or do not have a termite infestation is to contact the team at Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite Services. We offer free in-home inspections and estimates in the Valley and Casa Grande.

Here are the signs of termites:

#1. Clicking noises

If there are termites hidden deep within your walls, chances are you won’t be able to see them. But, you may be able to hear them. The fact that they create hollow tunnels and caverns in walls while leaving a thin layer of wood at the surface allows them to go undetected for months.

As termites eat wood, their mandibles make soft clicking noises. When this sound is multiplied by the several thousand insects that belong to a single colony, it because audible when you listen carefully. If you hear a clicking sound when your house is quiet, your home may have a termite problem.

#2. Termite tubes

Another major indicator of termites is the presence of brown clay shelter tubes. Termites build these structures along foundation walls and use them to find food, protect themselves from predators, and travel through a building.

These tubes are small and narrow when a colony first builds them, but the tubes are widened over time. The wider the shelter tubes, the more damage has been done to your home. Having your home inspected annually by Arizona’s Best Choice Pest and Termite Service is a great way to discover termite tubes before the insects cause much damage.

However, you can also do a quick check at home. Walk around your home and look at the foundation for any mud tubes. Then, go into the attic and use a flashlight to look at the wood beams. Termites will often make mud tubes to travel between beams.

#3. Hollow wood or sagging floors

One of the most obvious termite warning signs is the presence of hollow wood. The insects leave huge, hollow caverns in wood, causing severe structural damage. You can check for this by periodically tapping the walls of your house. If you’re tapping studs and the sound being returned is hollow, it could be an early alert to termite damage.

Do you have a basement or a second floor? This same hollowing out of support beams could lead to sagging floors on either your ground floor or second floor. The presence of a sagging floor is a major, dangerous indicator of a termite infestation.

Here’s how you can spot the signs of a termite infestation

Detecting any damage

Many homeowners first realize they have a termite problem when they see damage caused by the insects. If you notice any of the following, it’s time to schedule a termite inspection:

  • Many tiny holes in the wood (about the size of a nail)
  • Fissures or cracks in the wood
  • Small tunnels made from mud or soil on the home’s foundation
  • Sagging, drooping, or discolored drywall
  • Peeling paint
  • Buckling or blistered wood or laminate floorboards
  • Loose tile
  • Doors or windows that are difficult to open
  • Wood with a hollow sound or honeycomb appearance
  • Quiet clicking sounds in the walls

In addition to structural damage, you might also find piles of discarded termite wings that look like fish scales, mounds of termite droppings, or even live swarms of the insects. Some termite species shed their wings when they mature.

The live bugs look almost like ants but range in color from white-to-light brown. The droppings are a dark brown or black powder that collects on the outside of the termite tunnels.

Preventing a termite infestation

You can take a few proactive steps to lessen the chances that termites will decide to set up shop at your property. Here’s a few things to watch out for:

  • Remove wood and dead trees from your yard or property.
  • Keep firewood and construction materials in a dedicated shed, as far from your house as possible.
  • Build outdoor structures with treated wood, which repels termites.
  • Spread landscaping mulch away from your home’s foundation.
  • When possible, direct the flow of water (from your hose or irrigation) away from the foundation of your home, so that the soil near your foundation is consistently dry.

Be sure to check out this article for more on the signs of a termite infestation.

Dealing with the signs of a termite infestation

A professional inspection by an experienced termite specialist is the best course of action if you suspect you have termites. However, any existing signs of termite damage may mean that the problem is already well-entrenched. If you’re concerned about termites, you may even want to schedule an annual inspection and preventive treatment.

Why we use Altriset termite treatment here at Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite

If your home has termites, you don’t have time to fool with products and so-called experts who might not live up to their hype. Here at Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite, we rely on our experienced employees as well as Altriset termite treatment to take care of termites. Here, we’d like to tell you why.

Here’s how Altriset works:

When it comes to taking care of termites, the way Altriset works is it prevents termites from gnawing away at your property by paralyzing their mouthparts. Once termites come into contact with the product, it doesn’t immediately take effect, allowing them to continue their normal habits without them becoming “suspicious.”

This allows for more termites to be exposed. Altriset also provides lasting effects, and even better is the fact that it lasts for a while, better ensuring that every single termite is eradicated.

We’re also proud of the fact that this termite product attacks termites and only termites. This means you can treat your property without worrying about harming helpful bees and earthworms. We see no need to do more harm than good to organisms that do more good than harm.

You might also be worried about the effects of the pesticide if you have animals or children who might come into contact with it.

Here are the benefits of Altriset:

There are also several benefits to be enjoyed by using Altriset. For instance, the product has been officially registered as reduced-risk by the Environmental Protection Agency. It also has a low use-rate per gallon.

Once the fromula has done its job, it continues to do its job long afterward, meaning there’s less chance of you experiencing a re-infestation. This healthy “shelf life” also means that you don’t have to spend more money than necessary on additional treatments.       

Outside of Altriset, there are a number of benefits you receive when you leave the job to us. Our technicians offer free inspections, so you know for a fact what kind of pest problem you have, and we offer 100% guaranteed termite service for your full satisfaction.

Choose AZ Best Pest: the team that uses Altriset termite treatment

Hotel pest control: 5 pests and how to deal with them

There’s nothing that hurts the bottom line of any hotel, motel or bed-and-breakfast quite like a pest infestation. Guests expect a clean, safe environment. Any pest problems, and it’s not just them who won’t be rebooking—your online reviews will take a hit, as well. That’s why hotel pest control is important.

Hiring professionals to handle your lodging pest control needs is equally important. In this blog, we’ll run through the top pest problems that plague hotels and motels, and why experts are best trained and equipped to handle them.

Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite Services is your top choice for effective commercial pest control in Phoenix and Casa Grande. To schedule service for your business, contact our team.

Hotel pest control matters5 most common pests in hotels and motels

Just like homes, hotels and commercial businesses can have all manner of pest problems. Here are the top-5 pests that you need to look out for and get hotel pest control to deal with:

Bed bug infestation

There’s no two ways about it: bed bugs are the most dreaded pests in hotels and motels. Nothing will kill your business faster or expose you to greater legal liability than bed bugs. Nothing will ruin your reputation faster—even if the extent of the actual infestation is limited.

Your team should regularly be spot-checking beds, furniture, and more for bed bugs. We recommend giving us a call for both preliminary and post-discovery bed bug inspections and treatment.

Bed bugs can spread from room-to-room faster than you’d think, and you don’t know the true extent of the problem until you have a professional inspect your rooms. If you close your eyes and hope the problem goes away, you’re heading for disaster.

Rodents (mice and rats)

Rodents like to be where warmth, humans, and food are. Hotels and motels are the juncture of all three. Rodents are not just gross (although they totally are) or disease-carriers (although they totally are), but they can also cause property damage and bigger problems. Rats and mice living in walls have been known to chew through electrical cords and start fires.

Our team can set up discrete traps after our preliminary inspection, and work with you on a defined plan for getting rid of all rodents and preventing re-infestation. This will likely include a mixture of traps, blocking entries, and perhaps changes to how trash and food waste is disposed at your hotel.

Prevent a cockroach infestation

They’re disgusting. If a guest finds one of these in their room, you can expect to receive a very angry call or perhaps worse. The guest is well within their rights: cockroaches represent a great health threat. They carry a large number of deadly pathogens that can cause serious diseases.

Roaches in a home are one thing, since the factors that led to their proliferation can be tightly controlled by the homeowner. However, in a hotel setting, they’re very difficult to get rid of without the intervention of a professional. That’s because guests often eat and drink in their rooms, and there are plenty of places for roaches to hide and breed.

Arizona’s Best Choice can help you get rid of your roach problems with a series of traps, treatments, and advice on how to eliminate the roach’s food supply.

Get rid of the flies

Most hotel owners and managers probably wouldn’t put flies on their top list of pests that they think of needing to deal with. However, flies are a big hassle for guests, and eliminating them is important. However, traditional means of elimination—such as fly swatters and flypaper—aren’t going to “fly” with your guests.

We have multiple means of helping you get rid of flies for good. In addition to our treatments, we’ll suggest plants and ways to discourage flies from hanging around your rooms, lobby, and common areas.

Termite Prevention

Most guests aren’t going to notice termites. However, your entire property could be endangered by a termite infestation, ruining your investment and possibly even leading to you needing to close the hotel to have repairs made. That’s a lot of lost revenue and spent cash on dealing with a problem that can be prevented with effective termite control.

Just like we do for property management companies, we can help your hotel manage your termite treatment needs. We use an effective treatment and back our work with a warranty. Our team is thorough. It’s one of the most effective ways of dealing with termites.

For hotel pest control, call us

It’s important that you handle things right with your guests. Trust, communication, honesty, and doing the right thing by your guests goes a long way. So does corrective action, which is why it’s so important to call in the professionals as soon as possible.

Here in Phoenix and Casa Grande, Arizona, Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite is, well, the best choice out there for commercial pest control and hotel pest control services. Our highly trained and professional technicians have years of experience working with hotels and motels.

Here are 5 common winter pests in Phoenix, Arizona

We’ve previously written about summer pests in Phoenix. However, just because temperatures are dropping as we enter winter doesn’t mean you can rest easy. There are multiple types of winter pests in Phoenix that you need to be aware of.

In this blog post, we’ll review five of the most common types of winter pests here in the Valley, and what you should do to deal with each of them.

The top 5 winter pests in Phoenix

Here are five of the most common winter pests in Phoenix. If you spot these creepy-crawlies, call Arizona’s Best Pest & Termite Services for professional pest prevention and treatment.

1. Spiders

Spiders are just one of the more common winter pests in Phoenix.Spiders seek out the warmth of your home during the winters here in the Valley. Many spiders are harmless. The cellar spider—commonly known as the “Daddy Long-Legs Spider” in the United States—is an example of a spider that poses no threat to humans, but is a predator to other insects. Unless you’re an arachnophobe, we recommend leaving them be.

The same is not true for two other species: the black widow and the brown recluse, both found here in Arizona. These spiders love to make their winter homes in Phoenix garages, attics, and other secluded spaces. As venomous species, both can pose a threat to you and your family.

If you spot either the black widow—one of the most recognizable spiders in the world—or the brown recluse, call Arizona’s Best Choice for service.

2. Ants

Ants are less active outside during the winter, as they tend to hibernate under the ground during the colder months. However, once inside your home, ants feel the warmth and begin to start their foraging behaviors. In this way, ants can be one of the more surprising winter pests in Phoenix.

A winter ant infestation is typically a sign that the colony is well-built and somewhere in close proximity to your home. Give us a call for a free pest inspection, and we’ll advise you on the best way to deal with the ants.

3. Termites

This is the big one. Winters in Phoenix, Arizona are termite season, as it’s when termites are most active. Elsewhere around North America, nightly frosts can claim the lives of entire termite colonies. However, the mild winter weather here in the Valley and the warmth of your home is enough for the termites to thrive and multiply.

Termites require immediate treatment from a professional team. Left to their own devices, drywood termites can damage or destroy your home. Look for the signs of subterranean termites in your home, and then give us a call for a free termite inspection.

4. Cockroaches

Cockroaches are primarily a summer pest in Phoenix. However, drawn in by the warmth of your home, they may also be seen in the winter in your house. Besides being completely disgusting, roaches carry a large number of microbial pathogens, including salmonella, streptococcus, and Staphylococcus.

If you suspect your home has roaches, call in our team—even in the colder months, roaches can multiply and become a big headache for you and your home.

5. Small Rodents

Small rodents, such as mice and rats, are also active inside the house during the winters. These pests can seek shelter inside the house to avoid the cold. Much like roaches, rodents pose a health risk because of the different pathogens they carry. You need to be vigilant when the weather changes and temperature decreases.

Consider calling a pest control expert to eliminate the rodents from inside the house.

Here’s How You Can Help Termite-Proof Your Home

Termite-Proof Your HomeEvery year, termite infestation in the United States costs thousands of dollars in structural and property damage. The actual extent of the damage depends on the size of the colony, type of termite, and the food sources present inside and around the house.

Once the termite has infested a home, it is costly and difficult to exterminate them. Moreover, the damage done to the foundation of the house or the furniture inside can cost top dollars for the property owners.

A colony of termites can cause extensive damage in just about six months after infestation. In warmer climates, the colony can infest and ravage through the wooden structures even more quickly. That’s why it’s important that you identify and exterminate termites from the house as early as possible. In this blog posts, we’ll review some tips to termite-proof your home.

How do you know if you have a termite infestation?

The most common type of termite in the US is the subterranean termite that builds mud tunnels from the ground towards the food source. Other less common type includes dry wood termites, damp wood termites, Formosan termite, and conehead termites. All of these termites can do major damage to the property.

The foremost thing that you can do to avoid termite damage is to keep a look out for termites. The earlier you detect and remove the termites from the house, the less will be the damage. Consider probing exposed wood using a screwdriver or other similar tool. If you detect hollow spots in the woods, a termite colony might have invaded your house.

Of course, the best way to know for sure if you have a termite inspection or not is to call the team at Arizona’s Best Pest & Termite Services. We offer free in-home termite inspections.

Apart from keeping an eye for the termites, you can also take certain steps to prevent the natural pests from invading your home.

1. Termite-proof your home foundation

When constructing the home, you should ask the constructor to use a concrete foundation and leave a space between the wood and the soil. Also, it’s important that the exposed wood surfaces should be covered with a metal barrier or sealant to prevent termite infestation.

2. Keep the soil around the foundation dry

Another important tip to prevent termite infestation is to keep the soil around the house dry. The house exterior can act as a portal through which the termites can invade your house. Proper drainage and grading can prevent moisture around the house thereby preventing a termite infestation. Also, you should consider maintaining the downspouts and the gutters to termite-proof the house.

3. Maintain your roof tiles

Broken roof tiles can also act as a gateway for the termites to enter the house. You should check the roof and repair any cracked or broken roof tiles. Also, you should take measures to keep the roof dry to avoid termite infestation.

4. Confirm that your air conditioner is properly placed

Termites are attracted to the moisture released by the air conditioner. To avoid termite infestation, you should consider putting the air conditioner unit away from the foundation of the house. This will prevent the termites from making a meal of the wooden items inside or outside the house.

What You Should Know About Subterranean Termites

Subterranean TermitesTermites are found almost everywhere in the world. They are a menace to deal if they colonize inside the house. A colony of termites can cause major damage that can cost hundreds of dollars to the house owner. The termites eat anything made of wood including doors, frames, chairs, tables, and other items made of wood.

Most people have come across drywood termites that are the standard invasive species eating the woods inside the house. However, a totally different species of termites also exist, known as subterranean termites, that can destroy the house from top to bottom.

Subterranean termites: An introduction

Subterranean termites are particularly common in the southeastern parts of the United States, but can also be found in Arizona and the Southwest. These termites like to feed on moist wood located on the ground. They are especially fond of studs and other part of the house that have been exposed to moisture.

Unlike drywood termites, the subterranean termites tend to reside on the ground. They come out enjoy feasting on wood structure of the house before going back into the tunnels. A tell-tale sign of these invaders include mud tunnels that they build from their underground home to the moist wood that they like to eat. The tunnels protect them from predators and also from drying out.

How to protect your home against a subterranean termite infestation

Keep soil, stacked wood, and other debris away from the foundation of the home. This will reduce the chances of subterranean termites infecting your house.

You should look for mud tunnels that indicate the presence of the termite infestation. Look at the foundation of the home to find out whether mud shelter tubes are present.

The termite shelter tubes are hollow soil tunnels that extend from the sold to the house. It serves as a tunnel through which termites travel and carry the food supply. In case you find this unusual mud structure, you should let a professional exterminator examine your house.

An important point to keep in mind is that once the property has been treated of termite infestation, you should not think that the termites won’t attack the house again. Annual inspection of the property by a professional is important as it will ensure that the house becomes protected from the scourge of subterranean infestation.

Call Arizona’s Best Choice for help from a professional

If you suspect that your house has been infected with subterranean infestation, the first thing that you should do is to call a termite control company. The professional will inspect the property and take instant action to remove the termite infestation from the house.

Suspect that you have termites? Give us a call!

To get in touch with professional subterranean termite control experts in the area of Arizona, you can contact Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite Services. We use environmentally friendly products to clean the pests. All our treatments are safe and approved by the EPA.

Drywood Termites: What you need to know about this Arizona termite type

Drywood TermitesDrywood termites—as the name itself might suggest—feed on dry wood. The termites establish colonies in structural wood, furniture moldings, fence and utility posts, window and door frames, and many more places.

It’s not easy to detect a drywood termite infestation. However, there are certain signs that termites leave that can signify of a possible termite infestation. We’ll review that in this blog post.

If you suspect that you have termites, give Arizona Best Choice Pest Control a call for your free termite inspection. Contact us.

Where do drywood termites live?

Drywood termites are found in coastal regions in the south and southwestern part of the United States. However, in rare cases, these termite infestations can also occur in the northern part of the country as well.

Unlike most termites that build colonies in the moist soil and prefer to eat damp wood, drywood termites can thrive in dry places as well, and specialize in eating bone-dry wood. This makes Arizona homes a tasty target.

How to detect a drywood termite infestation

Drywood termites live mostly within the wood on which they feed. They can be found inside built-in cabinets, furniture, door and window frames, exposed beams, window paneling, and baseboards around the perimeter of your home.

After a colony of termites has taken up residence inside the house, they can go undetected for years as they burrow into the wood. Only once the pests have done significant damage to the wood are they noticed by the homeowners.

That being said, there are certain telltales signs that can indicate the presence of a termite infestation.

Drywood termites extract water from the feces. This result in a unique fecal pellet called frass. The pellets are hexagonal in shape and are about 1 mm long. If you see these small pellets near furniture items inside the house, your home may be infested by drywood termites. You should contact a termite control professional as soon as you find the pellets to detect and remove termite infestation.

Another telltale sign of a termite colony are mud tunnels. The termites build mud tunnels that connect the nest to their food source (wood). The appearance of mud tunnels is a clear indication of a termite infestation that needs to be removed by a pest control professional.

The tunnels may contain wood-like broken fecal materials. You can break open the tunnels to find out if the termites are active inside.

The third telltale sign of drywood termite infestation include swarms of winged insects. The winged insects are a group of male and female termites that usually occur during four or five years after a termite infestation. They fly in search for a new colony of the termites. Swarming usually occurs during spring and autumn seasons. Also, the swarms of winged drywood termites usually occur during the rainy season.

Final words of advice!

Keep in mind that removing a drywood termite infestation is not a DIY project. Only a pest control expert can remove the termite infestation and keep termites from re-infesting your home.

The professional can quickly locate the source of the infestation and take steps to eliminate the colony from the house. What’s more, the pest control professional can treat the affected areas inside the house so that termite infestation does not occur again.

If you want help in removing termite infestation in Arizona, you should contact Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite Services. We offer a free termite inspection.

Here’s how to tell if you have a carpenter ant infestation

Carpenter AntIf left untreated, a carpenter ant infestation can cause a great damage to wood furniture items inside the house. The ants develop a colony of satellite nests inside the home. You must contact a professional pest control company to remove the threat posed by carpenter ant infestation. 

We offer free pest control inspections.

If you suspect you have a carpenter ant problem, call the pros here at Arizona’s Best Choice Pest Control. Contact us.

What is a carpenter ant?

Carpenter ants damage the wood within which they have built their nest. These insects live in large colonies consisting of worker ants and a queen ant. The worker ants are about a quarter-to-a-half inch in size. They cooperate to gather food for the entire colony.

A colony of ants is established after a queen ant—that is generally three-quarter inch in size—lays her eggs. The ants usually live near fallen trees in the woods. However, sometimes they make a colony inside a house.

A carpenter ant infestation is generally not easy to identify. Some of the telltale signs of a carpenter ant infestation include the following:

1. Sawdust pileup

Carpenter ants generally excavate through the wood. They tend to kick out the sawdust material. If a carpenter ant infestation is present in the house, if you find the sawdust in the corners, crawl spaces, and dark areas inside the house.

2. Large ants

Unlike drywood termites, carpenter ants typically don’t just tunnel through the wood. They also look for food from other sources. You can see them marching across the kitchen. While most of the carpenter ants are black, some species have yellowish or reddish colorization.

During the early summer and spring months, you might run across the winged ants that fly in search of new colonies. The ants have bent antennae and slender waist, unlike termites that have smaller wings. If you stumble across ants that fit this description, you should call Arizona’s Best Pest Control to look for carpenter ant infestation.

3. Signs of wood damage

You should look for wood damage to identify a carpenter ant infestation. If you see small rectangular holes or a distinct discoloration of the wood, it may indicate an infestation. The damaged wood may indicate the beginning of a tunnel that may run deeper inside the wooden structure.

In the end, remember that a carpenter ant infestation can do major damage inside a home. It is important that you take instant actions to identify and remove the infestation.

If you see any of the above three signs that are described in this article, you should immediately contact a professional pest control company like Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite. We’re an experienced and trusted company of pest control professionals.

Our experts can quickly detect signs of a carpenter ant infestation and take instant actions to remove the nuisance from the home.
