What is the cost of a termite treatment?
We receive that question regularly, so we created the estimating tool found below. Keep in mind, this tool only generates rough estimates for post-construction liquid subterranean termite treatments performed in the Southeastern U.S. (specifically Georgia). Prices for soil pre-treats and control of other termite species (drywoods, dampwoods) could differ considerably.
Step 1- Measure the perimeter of your home.
To use this tool, you’ll need the lineal footage of your home – not the square footage. Since termiticide is only injected into the soil surrounding the foundation, square footage can be misleading. A loft or second story has no bearing on your home’s lineal footage.
Step 2- Determine your home’s construction type.
If you’re not sure if you have a slab or crawl space, stomp your foot on your home’s first floor. If the floor feels solid, as if concrete is under your flooring, you have a slab foundation. A crawl space will make more of an echoed “thump”. Foundation vents around the exterior of your home are the good indicator of a crawl space, but not a guarantee.
Step 3- Use the calculating tool.
Enter your home’s lineal footage and construction type and the estimates will automatically appear.
Typically, the larger the termite company – the higher the price, but that’s not always the case.
It was once said, “a termite treatment should cost less than having your house painted”. For the most part, that’s a pretty accurate statement.
