Termite Control ChandlerTermite Control Chandler, Scare Tactics


The people at Termite Control Chandler want you to know that while some Arizona Pests are a threat to your home and property, the scare tactics used by some Pest Management Companies should be ignored.


There is nothing worse for the pest control industry than to run across a company that uses fear as advertising. It makes the rest of the Pest Management Professionals look bad. There are spiders, scorpions, ants and termites all over the state of Arizona. That does not mean they are going to kill you. One blog I read said that Cockroaches can spread leprosy. I had to look that one up, because I never heard of it. So let me set the record straight.


Termites do cause more damage than fires and floods combines, but that does not mean one termite infestation will destroy your home with the same speed as fire or flood.


Cockroaches carry a variety of bacteria and have been tested. German Cockroaches are the worst, but all cockroaches feed on the lowest forms of digestible matter, human and animal waste. Although they feed on the bacteria carrying matter, it would be very uncommon to contract leprosy, which is an airborne disease. Cockroaches have been linked to asthma and allergies. These insects are not desirable because they breed so rapidly and the parasites that feed on cockroaches may also bite humans and pets. Cockroaches have also been known to carry various types of intestinal parasites such as tape worm and hook worm from eating animal feces.


Scorpions are of the greatest concern to humans because the Bark Scorpion is a venomous creature. They have small claws which means they have a harder time taking down their prey; the venomous sting is their primary form of attack and defense.


The last part I would like to address is the Black Widow and Brown Recluse spiders. Arizona is home to several different recluse spiders, but the dreaded brown recluse is not one of them. Black Widow spiders have a painful bite which may be harmful in children, the elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system. Healthy adults should seek treatment for a Black Widow bites and scorpion stings as a precaution.


Termite Control Tempe is a great source of information on termites, termite inspections, termite treatment and removal. Our Termite Technicians are trained to handle all of your Arizona Pest Control needs from Ants to Termites and many more. If you notice scorpion activity or locate a Black Widow’s nest in or near your home, it is recommended that you hire a professional for removal.


Arizona homeowners should have a termite inspection at least once per year. Termite Control Chandler offers a free termite inspection and will also look for entry points that appeal to other pests such as mice, scorpions, cockroaches, spiders and snakes. The best defense against Arizona pests is prevention.
