Are termites common in Phoenix?

Thumbtack Editors

Termites can be a problem for Phoenix homeowners — but there are ways to prevent infestations. The most important steps are to eliminate pathways for the termites to enter a home and routinely checking for signs for termites. For example, inspect decks, siding, trim, windows and doors for small holes and “bubbles” in the paint. And, make sure to keep bushes, firewood and mulch away from your home’s exterior. Lastly, address all leaks quickly. To prevent or remove infestations, hire a local termite exterminator.
