Subterranean, Drywood and Desert Western termites are commonly found in Arizona.
Subterranean termites are the most common and threatening to structural damage. They are subterranean and attack from the ground up.
Drywood termites also invade structures. They live above ground and colonize inside the structure.
Desert Western termites are minimally harmful to structures and attack dead grass and debris found from plants. They also are attracted to cardboard and paper debris.
