Orkin Tucson, Arizona

Tuscon AZ Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector

Tucson Pest Pressure

The climate, elevation, and population of Tucson, AZ, contribute to its unique blend of pests. While surrounding cities in the arid, desert environment are largely untouched by wood-boring beetles, Tucson's high elevation raises moisture levels in local trees, cut lumber, and existing homes. This attracts pests, such as powderpost and deathwatch beetles, which leave unsightly exit holes in houses and can weaken structural supports. Drywood and subterranean termites cause similar property damage, though their large colonies mean they can be even more destructive.

Pests that benefit from living near people, like rats and ants, are also common around growing Tucson neighborhoods. Roof rats are agile climbers that often live in attics, overhead garage storage, or vines on fences and home exteriors. The pests contaminate stored foods with their droppings, gnaw on wiring, and tear up insulation. Native to Arizona, southern fire ants and desert fire ants can cause problems when they nest in yards, flower beds, and wall voids. Walls near to bath traps, shower stalls, and hot water heaters are most at risk. These aggressive pests protect themselves with painful, venomous stings and bites.
