As termite control experts, a common question we are asked is “How much does termite treatment cost?” It certainly is an important question considering how many homes we treat yearly with effective termite treatment processes.
We at Jim’s Termite & Pest Control Sydney have a range of different treatments to meet a wide range of budgets and you would like a fee quote then please call us on 131 546.
The first question that we are often asked is how much does termite treatment cost?
To be honest, it’s a hard to work out over the phone as there can be lots of variables. There are over 300 different species of termites in Australia and all have very different behaviours, feeding patterns which will affect the treatment options that are available.
It is really important to understand and identify which species of termites you have as this will determine the best approach and treatment that needs to be put in place. This will also affect the termite treatment cost.
For example if you have Hetrotermes inside your Sydney home the treatment can usually be very low cost as the colony that the Jim’s Termite & Pest Control technician is dealing with is only small, being 200-300 termites. If the technician finds Coptotermes where the colony is 200,000 to 300,000 plus then obviously the cost will be higher as there are more termites to deal with and will require a different approach.
If Coptotermes are found then they will need to be dealt with quickly as they are the most destructive termites we find here in Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle.
How much does termite treatment cost in Sydney is this dependent on what treatment option is chosen?
Termite treatment costs will be determined on what sort of treatment you select and will depend on what budget you have available.
Option 1 – Chemical Treatment of the colony nest
The cheapest way of treating a termite colony in Sydney would be for our Jim’s Termite & Pest Control technicians to apply a liquid chemical treatment directly into the nest.
Option 2 – Bait Box
The next lowest cost option would be to apply a baiting box to the termites and allow the termites to feed on the bait across several weeks. Depending on the feeding pattern and termite species the bait maybe required to be topped up.
This is a very good way of dealing with the termites as it is not dependant on finding the colony or nest, the termites do the work for us by taking a growth regulator back to the colony.
Option 3 – Chemical barriers
The third option for treating termites is to drill and inject chemical management barrier. It offers long term, effective termite management, protecting the home for several years but is more expensive to start with.
Option 4 – Termite Monitoring
The fourth option for treating termites is to install a termite detection and monitoring system. This offer long term, effective termite management, protecting the home for several years but is also more expensive to start with.
Warranty – On Exterra system
Some of these treatments will even come with a timber replacement warranty. Some of our Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle technicians have been trained to install and maintain the Exterra Termite Monitoring Systems and are able to offer the manufacturers $250,000 timber replacement warranty.
