Your Termite Control Services questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does termite treatment cost near me?

A termite treatment costs $330 to $820 on average for a basic exterior treatment. Prices increase to $3,000 or more for large infestations that require fumigation. 

A termite inspection costs $75 to $150.

Is termite treatment worth it?

Termite treatment is worth it for:

  • Effectively removing termite infestations before they damage your home's foundation or structure.
  • Obtaining an official termite clearance letter to finalize a real-estate transaction
  • Qualifying a home for a loan when refinancing
  • Filing damages with the landlord

Note: Termites only come back after treatment if their original entrance points to the home haven't been thoroughly sealed or protected against new colony growth.

What are the signs of termites in your home?

Signs of termites in your home include:

  • Lots of small holes and tunnels in wooden objects
  • Tiny wings in small piles around damaged wood
  • Drywall pinholes
  • Sawdust-like debris that collects near wood with holes
  • Hollow-sounding areas in walls or wooden furniture

How does a termite treatment work?

Termite treatments work in different ways depending on the method:

  • Bait stations in the ground around the home perimeter stop subterranean termite colonies.
  • Wood treatments like surface sprays, chemical injections, and foams target termites living inside wooden furniture, walls, and other wood structures.
  • Soil treatments include digging a trench around the home and filling it with various insecticides.
  • Fumigation kills termites on a large scale for large home-interior infestations.

How long does a termite treatment last?

A professional termite treatment lasts 5 to 7 years. Termite bait stations only last 1 year. If all the original causes of termites have been resolved and the home is well sealed and insulated, then termites shouldn't return.

How long does a termite treatment take?

Most termite treatments take 30 to 45 minutes for one room or area on the property. Bigger infestations take 1 to 3 days to treat, depending on the termite colony's size. The termites typically die within 5 days after the treatment.

Is termite treatment covered by insurance?

Homeowners and rental insurance typically don't cover termite treatments. These companies consider property maintenance to prevent termites as the owner's responsibility.

Is termite treatment safe for pets?

Most termite treatments aren't safe for pets, especially fumigation, bait stations, chemical sprays, and liquid insecticides. Ask your exterminator how long pets must stay out of areas treated for termites to keep them safe.

How do I find the best termite treatment company?

Browse through HomeGuide listings to find an exterminator or pest-control specialist near you.

Before hiring a termite treatment company:

  • Compare at least 3 in-person estimates.
  • Read their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Choose licensed and insured businesses with at least 5 years of experience.
  • Get copies of an itemized bid and contract before the inspection begins.
  • Avoid choosing the lowest quote that typically indicates low-quality standards.
  • Never give the final payment until after they complete the job.

What questions should I ask a termite control company?

  • How long have you been inspecting homes for termites?
  • Do you have all the state-required certifications to apply insecticides?
  • Can I see your list of references?
  • What can I do to stop termites from spreading?
  • How should I prepare my home for the termite treatment?
  • Which treatment methods do you recommend and why?
  • Will I need additional home repairs to prevent termites from coming back?
  • Have the termites spread into my walls?
  • What other costs should I expect?
