Subterranean Termite Damage in Flooring

Subterranean Termite Damage in Flooring

We were called about subterranean termites in Clarkdale, AZ today and couldn’t have come across a more textbook infestation. The owner of this home was unaware of these little guys until they discovered a water leak at this plumbing trap. The termites had concealed themselves in the wall, leaving very little evidence of their presence until the wall was removed to get at the plumbing. You can see in the photos the amount of damage they managed to accomplish before they were discovered.

In the photo of just the white drywall take a look at the line on it that goes virtually unnoticed. This is were the termites have eaten the paper out from behind the texture. Termites will eat the softer cellulose generally before going after the harder wood.

These guys will be treated with a application of Termidor and we also want to make sure the water leak is fixed to remove any excessive moisture from the area.
