Termites are common here in Yuma. We have the equipment and the trained personnel to help prevent an infestation, if this has already occurred we can exterminate them as well.

Subterranean termites

Like ants, and some bees and wasps, termites divide labor among castes, produce overlapping generations and take care of young collectively. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species (about 2,600 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests.

Owing to their wood-eating habits, many termite species can do great damage to unprotected buildings and other wooden structures. Their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged and exhibit surface changes. Once termites have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets, and other cellulosic materials.

The termites’ effects are damaging, costing the southwestern United States approximately $1.5 billion each year in wood structure damage.
