Termite Treatment Costs
Proudly Serving South Carolina | North Carolina | Georgia
The cost of termite control can vary wildly depending on many different factors. When assessing a home for termites, an exterminator must determine what type of termites have invaded your home and how extensive of an infestation you have. These factors will dictate which type of treatments are needed and the costs associated with each type of treatment. In addition to the cost of extermination services, termites can create extensive damage to the wooden structure of a home. Termite infestations cost homeowners in the United States approximately $5 billion each year.

Damage Caused By Termites
Did you know a large termite colony can destroy a 2×4 wooden beam in 5 months? Termites are one of the most damaging insects that can invade a home. They chew through a home’s wooden structure creating a hollow tunnel network that can make the wood structurally unsound. In addition to your home’s wooden structure, termites can also cause damage to drywall, paint, floors, and furniture. If left untreated, termites will cause thousands of dollars in home repairs which are generally not covered by homeowners insurance plans.
Type of Termite Treatments
The cost of termite extermination will depend on which type of treatments are needed to effectively rid your home of termites. The most common methods of termite treatment are:
- Soil treatments: Soil treatments are effective against subterranean termites. The treatment is applied by digging a trench along a home’s foundation and treating the soil with a termiticide. Then the exterminator will fill back in the trench creating a barrier around the perimeter of your home.
- Wood treatments: There are a few types of wood treatments an exterminator may use. The most common wood treatments are foaming termiticide which expands and fills cracks and holes in the wood and spraying a termiticide directly onto the exposed wood.
- Bait stations: Bait stations are small, buried tubes that contain poisoned wood. A termite will find these stations and will bring the poison back to the colony. Bait stations can be effective at controlling subterranean termite populations
- Fumigation: Fumigation is normally used for extreme drywood termite infestations. It involves fully covering the home and injecting a termiticide that will kill termites that are living in the home.
