Well it’s another sign of Subterranean termites in your home. Did you know? Termites are social insects. Termite colonies can have up to 2 million but in Arizona it’s probably closer to 100,000 I think it’s due to the lack of water. They eat all kinds of wood and anything that contains wood cellulose. Subterranean termites work 24/7/365 and if your house is on the menu they will do everything they can to get in. The picture above is a termite tube coming from the attic above, we found the termites gaining entry outside between the brick and treated them with Termidor HE and no more termites inside. The key to a successful termite treatment is finding them and treating the soil. Some companies foam or use a dry product, now don’t get me wrong sometimes you have to do what you have to do but protecting and treating the soil is always the right move. In my opinion treating the soil is always the best move and treating with a superior product like Termidor is also a plus. Protect your home with the best – Termidor.
A few tips to keep them away:
- Keep stone or soil away from stucco on house.
- Make sure water including drip and flood irrigation drains away from the home.
- Stack wood away from house.
- Keep bushes trimmed and away from hose.
- Check you home monthly for new critters.
