Professional termite treatment in Phoenix
There’s a common saying here in the Valley: either your home has a history of termites, has termites in the present, or will get termites in the future. Every year, termites infest hundreds of homes across the Valley. Untreated, these infestations can eventually lead to significant structural damage. At KY-KO Pest Prevention, we specialize in highly effective, long-lasting termite control. Our termite treatment strategy both eliminates the current infestation and prevents re-infestation for years to come. We back our work with a complementary one-year warranty.
If you have seen evidence of termite activity, don’t wait! Call our team at 480-964-8900 to schedule a free termite inspection in Phoenix.

What are termites?
The Desert Subterranean Termite
The Sonoran Desert is home to many different termite subspecies, but the most common one we deal with is the Desert Subterranean Termite. As their name implies, these termites live and travel underground, constructing mud tunnels until they reach a food source. These are the most destructive termites found in the Valley. They most often access the wood in your home by building their telltale mud tubes to climb up the stem wall.
There are other types of termites, such as drywood termites, that can also pose a threat to your home. However, they are not as common, and generally only gain access to the home through unusual circumstances, such as being brought in a piece of wood furniture.
One of the challenges of termite treatment in Arizona is that termites like to reinfest homes they have been in before. Even if the old colony has been completely wiped out, the pheromones they left behind can serve as an attractive lure to other termites.
Homeowners who have had a termite infestation at some point will often need to remain vigilant for many years to come and schedule regular termite inspections to confirm there is no new activity.

If you have seen evidence of termite activity or have reason to suspect you may have termites in your home, call us at 480-964-8900 for a free termite inspection in the Valley. We’ll send one of our experienced, state-certified termite experts to your home to identify the issue and then talk through the next steps with you. By determining the scope, severity, and location of the infestation, our technician can start putting together a strategy, which is the key to effective termite control in Arizona.
What are the signs of termite activity?
Unfortunately, termites do much of their work behind drywall, tucked away in attics, and—generally speaking—out of sight of homeowners. If unnoticed by the homeowner, many termite infestations can continue to expand and eventually cause significant structural damage to the home.
However, there are a few things homeowners can do to protect their homes from termites. Here are some signs of termites you can be on the lookout for:
- Termite tubes climbing the exterior stem wall
- Pellet-like termite frass (droppings) in your garage
- Wood beams that sound hollow when tapped
- Termite tubes between wood beams in the attic
If you notice any of these signs of a termite infestation, call KY-KO Pest Prevention at 480-964-8900 for a free termite inspection and have one of our experts check out your home. Doing so can be the difference between catching and treating the infestation early versus allowing it develop silently for years.
Our termite warranty
At KY-KO Pest Prevention, we provide homeowners with a complimentary 1-year warranty. If you notice renewed termite activity in the 12 months since our service, we’ll come back to your home and reapply the treatment.
For your additional peace of mind, we also have 5-year warranties available at an additional cost. Our termite technician will review your warranty options with you during our service.
Our termite treatment
We offer effective termite control in Phoenix. Once our technician has determined that there is termite activity, we’ll sit down with you and build a customized treatment plan for your home.After treating the interior of the home, one of the most-effective ways to prevent reinfestation is by employing a “moat” defense around the exterior of your home. This figurative and literal line in the sand blocks subterranean termites from accessing the stem wall.
Both the interior and exterior termiticides we use are EPA-approved. Once our treatment has dried, it is safe for humans and pets to be around. We’re happy to review this with you in greater detail if you have questions.
How much does termite treatment cost in Phoenix?
The cost of treatment can vary depending on factors such as the severity of the termite infestation, the type of termites involved, the treatment required to eliminate the termites, the size of your home, the length of the warranty, and more.
