Here in the East Valley of Arizona we mainly see subterranean termites. Though some parts of Arizona do see drywood and dampwood termites. Either species of termites, in any case, are ranking on the list of the most destructive pests because they often go undetected until they begin showing their destruction, and can cause serious structural damage to your Residential home or business. A professional and detailed inspection by Scorpion King is key to beginning the elimination of termite colonies causing destruction in the structure. We will give options and recommend the best treatment for your Residential home or business.
Subterranean termites; even its name reveals a hint of their behavior. Subterranean and Drywood and Dampwood termites are similar, but there are many distinct differences in their behavior, living habits and swarming habits. Subterranean termites need to live and have contact with the ground for moisture, the Drywood termite does not have contact with the ground and can survive without moisture. Dampwood termites could look like sawdust – only a professional inspection would reveal the true source. Mud tubes are the most common. Mud Tubes are the pathways termites use to connect colonies in the soil to food which is attached to the structure. Scorpion King Exterminating comes with 40+ years of service in the industry and understanding of termites and all pests. We are also ACE (Associate Certified Entomologist within our company).
We understand the life cycles of termites which begins with an egg and goes through a process called incomplete metamorphosis consisting of egg, nymph, and adult stages. The nymph appears to look like a smaller adult termite, and the nymphs will go through a series of molts as they grow. In some species, the eggs will go through up to four molting stages and the nymphs go through three. The Nymphs first moult into workers, and some workers can go through further molting and become soldiers or alates – workers become alates only by molting into alate nymphs. The termites that become ”alates” are capable of reproducing. They will develop wings and their bodies become harder and darker to help the swarming termites withstand exposure to light and dry air. The “soldier” termite his job is to protect the colony, as they may have to battle ants who may invade the colony. The worker termites’ job is to build tunnels, forage, and take care of the young termites; they have no eyes and cannot see, and they have no pigmentation/white. Workers and soldiers live about one to two years and the Queen termites can survive over a decade in ideal climates. Termite colonies have three types of castes: soldiers, workers, and reproductive. How it is determined which termite will take on a particular caste in the colony is determined by pheromone cues by the king and queen. A termite colony begins when a queen and king pair up and mate during flight and settle down and begin their family.
Termites are extremely hardy insects that require three basic things to survive and thrive: food, moisture, and shelter. Unfortunately, your property provides all of these things!
Subterranean termites make their home in the soil, where they’ll work tirelessly to build an underground network of tunnels with access to key above-ground food sources. Drywood termites literally eat themselves out of house. They live and thrive in the wood they consume. When it comes down to it, you can’t afford to not take termites seriously!
