Termites do more monetary damage per year then all natural disasters combined. There are many different species. There are 3 major categories of termites. Subterranean, dry wood and damp wood. Mostly we are concerned with Subterranean termites in Arizona.
Subterranean termites They generally live in the soil. In Arizona, they are the most prevalent. The most common subterranean termite found in Arizona that we are concerned with as far as structural damage is the desert subterranean termite Heterotermes aureus. There can be a large number of colonies in a small area. H. aureus typically prefers hotter dryer climates like the Sonoran Desert. The colony size is typically smaller than Reticulitermes which are a major concern in the south eastern states and California. Subterranean termite species H. aureus is responsible for removing dead wood from our desert landscape, returning nutrients to the soil and bringing soil from lower strata to the soil surface. Unfortunately, our houses either are built out of cellulose (dead wood) or have a large amount of cellulose material within the structure.
