Cost of Termite Treatment


By ProMatcher Staff



How Much Does Termite Treatment Cost?

The cost of termite treatment is impacted by several different factors. This articles is designed to help you get a better idea of how much your pest control project should cost. Before hiring an exterminator, take a few minutes to read this article. It might just help you save a few bucks.

Your geographic location.

+ The cost of termite treatment typically depends on your geographic location. The cost of termite extermination services tend to be higher in urban areas than in rural areas.

+ Is there an exterminator available locally? Most pest control services will charge an additional fee for calls outside of their normal service area.

Start with an Inspection.

Termite treatment should always begin with a basic inspection. This allows the exterminator to fully assess the damage and determine the best way to move forward. A comprehensive inspection report should offer some recommendations on how to remedy the termite infestation.

What type of infestation are you treating?

Every termite infestation is different. The severity of the infestation will be one of the most important factors affecting the cost of treatment. What species of termites are present? Is this a new problem or has the issue gone untreated for years? Is the affected area difficult to reach? Is the damage widespread or contained to one area?

Is this the first treatment?

The first termite treatment is typically the most expensive. Follow-ups and/or scheduled maintenance visits are generally more affordable.

Extermination method.

+ There are several methods of treating termites. A licensed exterminator will be able to recommend the best solution for your home’s needs. Each treatment comes at a different price point. For example, chemical treatment tends to be cheaper than bait extermination.

+ There are many treatment options to choose from, including chemical application, bait extermination, fumigation, heat treatment, and termite barriers. The extermination method used will depend on the species of termite present. For example, “trenching” is a common chemical treatment for getting rid of subterranean termites and tent fumigation is a better option for treating drywood termites.

Repairing Termite Damage.

Termites will eat away at the wood all over your home. This may have a serious impact on the structural integrity of your home over time. You’ll need to replace framing, flooring, and other damaged wood pieces. Unfortunately, these repairs will come at an additional cost. Don’t spend money to replace the wood before the termites have been properly exterminated.

Is there a guarantee on the work?

Will the exterminator return to your home and retreat if the treatment is not effective the first time? Will this come at an additional cost? Make sure to ask questions about the guarantee, and get all of the details in writing, in order to avoid a dispute later on.

Compare several estimates.

Before hiring any professional, it’s important to get several estimates for the work. This helps to ensure that you’re getting a fair price. Take some time to carefully review the quotes before making a final decision.
