Why it’s important to know the details of your termite treatment cost

Knowing exactly what you are getting for your money should always be explained in-depth to you.

Chemicals can vary largely in price. In regards to termite barriers, some soil application chemicals can last up to eight years. While some other chemicals may be significantly cheaper, but may need to be retreated after just two years.

Choosing the cheapest quote is often not the best option. It can often cost you a lot more money in additional treatments down the track.

What are your treatment options?

Your treatment options can vary largely depending on what exactly you need done.

You may need direct treatment to active termites found in your home or yard. These treatments may include:

  • Dusting
  • Foaming
  • Drill and injecting
  • Baiting

Choosing which of the above may depend on the location of the termites and the species we are dealing with. Species identification by an experience technician can be critical.

If it’s the installation of a termite barrier to protect your home that you’re after, again you have varying options.

These barriers can include physical barriers and chemical barriers.

Chemical barriers involve the installation of a termiticide treated zone to the soil around the perimeter and foundations of your home. These barriers can include:

  • Drill and injecting chemical under concrete areas
  • Trenching and flooding the soil areas around your home
  • The installation of a termite replenishment system, which floods chemical into the soil via a pipe

Physical Barriers involve the installation of a physical zone that termites cannot penetrate. This often uses plastic sheeting impregnated with termiticides.

Prices can vary quite significantly on these treatments. We will happily sit down with you and discuss the pros and cons of all your options. Finding a treatment that suits your home and budget is important to us.
