2. Termite Treatments
When we discover termites on or within your property during a termite inspection, we perform a treatment to eradicate the termites immediately and stop the progression of damage to your home and any other structures on the property. As we do this, we also survey the extent of damage already caused by the termite problem.
Our technicians are highly experienced in identifying a colony and understanding their pattern to ensure the termites will all be eliminated. After treatment for active termites, we generally wait 14-21 days and then come check to be sure the treatment successfully eradicated the active termites.
What are the different types of termite treatments you offer?
- Dusting – We drill a small hole into termite workings or damaged timbers and use a dust puffer to distribute a fine termiticide-impregnated cellulose powder. The powder creates a light cover over the termites and is ingested during their regular grooming, eliminating them. The dusts we use are non-repellents and leverage a transfer effect to take out other termites who encounter affected termites.
- Foaming – We drill a small hole into the termite workings or damaged timbers and distribute a liquid foam which quickly expands throughout the workings. The foam we use is simply a foam version of Termidor — the premium product for treating termites. It is non-repellent, which means the termites don’t sense danger. It keeps them alive for 4-6 days after contact, which allows for affected termites to transfer the chemical to non-affected termites.
- Liquid application – We directly apply liquid Termidor into a ground mound or arboreal termite nest to eradicate the colony.
How much does a termite treatment cost?
Our termite treatments cost around $277 for the first hour of treatment (depending on the size of your home, this may be all you need!). We also provide a free follow-up appointment 14-21 days later to ensure that the treatment was successful.
You will also receive two reports (a certificate of treatment and a site consultation report from the successful treatment check), plus a proposal to install a termite protection barrier.
In the rare event that the termite activity is extensive and 1 hour is not sufficient for the treatment, we charge from $107 to $114 for every 30 minutes thereafter.
