Tempe Pest Control

Termites are key members of the ecosystem due to their ability to break down dead cellulose material. When it comes to your home this pesky behavior can become a liability rather than a benefit, making it hard to see the benefits of these ecological neighbors. It’s because of this that termites have earned their pretty bad reputation. Here are some things you might not know about termites.

 50 Termite Species

There are approximately 50 active termite species that exist within the U.S. In fact, termites live in every U.S. state except for Alaska. Two species are commonly found in Arizona: subterranean termites and drywood termites. The climate’s hot and arid environment is perfect for these pests. Each species of termite requires a specific method of extermination.

Will Termites Bite Humans?

Termites cause severe harm to homes because of their ability to chomp away at cellulose in wood, but are not known to bite humans. While solider termites do maintain the ability to bite humans, they would only do so if handled – meaning they won’t seek you out. But even though you shouldn’t be worried about being bitten by a termite you should still implement professional extermination methods to protect termites from biting your home. Signs of termite infestation differ depending on the type of termite, but both drywood and subterranean termites damage wood.
