Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to do termite treatment?

If you plan on getting your house treated for termites, expect to pay around $767, on average. This cost will depend on several factors. The first is the extent of the infestation, with preventive treatments costing less than treating established colonies. Liquid or fumigation treatments will also cost extra and will depend on the scope of the infestation. Because of all these factors, it’s important to get price quotes from several termite control companies

How long does a termite treatment last?

Termite treatment companies typically say liquid termite treatment lasts around five years. Termite bait stations don’t last as long and usually need annual maintenance. With all types of treatments, it’s important to have a pro come to perform an annual inspection to make sure that termites aren’t making a comeback.

What are the signs of termites in your home?

When you see signs of termites in your home, call a trusted pest control professional as soon as possible to handle the situation. Termites feed on wood, meaning they eat through the wood that makes up the frame, floors and other components of your house. Most people don’t know they have termites until they discover the damage done, because termites remain hidden underground or inside the wood they are eating. Keep on the lookout for these signs of termites:

  • Water bubbles in your interior or exterior paint: If you poke at what look like paint bubbles and find termite droppings inside, it’s a sign of termite infestation.
  • Frass: This is a fancy term for termite poop. Keep your eyes peeled for what look like six-sided salt and pepper droppings.
  • Mud tubes: Subterranean termites move between their earth home and your house by building mud tunnels. Mud tubes under or along the side of your house or foundation are a sure sign of a termite infestation.  
  • Wings or swarming near your home: As a new colony is looking for a home, they fly (swarm), then shed their wings and burrow into nearby wood.
  • Softening of wood or hollowed-out wood: Termites don’t like paint, lacquer varnish or other wood finishes, so they’ll eat inside the wood and leave the exterior finish like a shell.

Are termites harmful to humans?

Termites are harmful to humans in that they can eat a home from the inside out. But unlike some other insects, termites don’t carry infection, nor do they bite or feed off people like parasitic bedbugs. So while they’re not harmful to your health, they can be extremely harmful to your wallet. The EPA reports that every year termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage in the United States. Immediate action and treatment is the best approach if you see signs of termites. The national average cost for an exterminator ranges from $250 to $400, but costs may be higher if you have a whole house infestation on your hands. Here are a few examples of average cost:

  • Standard liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot. An extermination company may have a minimum service fee, such as $150, to come out and provide treatment, no matter how small the space.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites including foaming and drilling into concrete slabs: $4-$5 per linear foot.
  • Liquid treatment of a 2,000-square-foot home for subterranean termites: approximately $400.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home. Pros measure fumigation costs in cubic feet. Fumigation costs can also be affected by the number of stories in your home.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.

Ken and his crew did a wonderful job killing termites that was hidden in a duplex that I owned. By far he was the best termite company. I had two other bids and Ken price was $800-$1,000 cheaper than the other companies. And besides the price the quality of work was excellent.

I scheduled Titan Termite for a full termite inspection of a house I was purchasing. Something came up and nobody was able to be at the house for the inspection. I got a call from the inspector who was very courteous and understanding when I told him I had to cancel last minute. They offered to reschedule and were very professional. So 5* for the great attitude although no inspection actually took place.

I had a great experience with Encino’s Best Termite Solutions. Victor was professional, knowledgeable, responsive and priced very reasonably. He went out of his way to check every corner of the house, and proposed a detailed plan. He did a very thorough and clean job, while being respectful of our schedules. He also brought a colleague to repair minor termite damage, and took care of a few additional affected areas that he uncovered with no extra charge.

From the minute he walked into my home to give me a free estimate he was kind, courteous and truly wanted my business. From phone called to text messages he would respond right away and got the job done and done at a good price. Would highly recommend.

He is the best! I can't say any more than that. There was nothing in the work he did, or his personality, that didn't exceed my expectations. He is a consummate professional, and is also very personable. He does excellent work, cleans up very well behind him, is thorough and provides great detail on what one needs to look for, and how one takes care of this curse of an issue (termites) over the long-term. I can't recommend him highly enough! Go Termite Doctor!

We booked Shedden Home Services for a termite inspection of a property we were looking into. Shedden was very knowledgeable and took the time out to explain everything to us. He never tried to oversell anything and was very honest about the condition and the work required. Will definitely recommend him to others!

I own a second floor condo unit that has an attic, recently saw swarmers in bathroom, and found out our HOA does not deal with termites if they are inside the building/unit. This sucks as I didn’t have plan or plenty of savings to deal with this situation...I looked up termite specialists on Thumbtack, Angie’s List and Yelp, messaged a lot of them, and met ten of them. Among the ten people I met, there were ones who proposed extensive treatment and gave me sky quotes, there were ones who didn’t even bother to go up and check my attic after I showed them one dead swarmer that I kept, and there were ones who checked every room of mine and gave me detailed charts and reports but were either too expensive or will need me to evacuate for a few hours for local treatment. Ricardo was one of the first few who responded and was the first one who showed up to check my unit. He checked rooms and my attic, found evidence of dry wood termites, proposed treatment, explained chemicals, gave me a written quote, answered my Qs and asked about a date to follow up and did follow up with me. He was very straightforward, was upfront about what to expect, and answered my questions in patience during the days I scheduled with other companies. I like his honesty and I can tell this is a person who knows the job well, who’s willing to help, and whom you don’t need to play any game with but just to be straight with him and trust him. After meeting ten people, I decided to go back to Ricardo as I think he’s the best fit. He offered reasonable price, wasn’t trying to oversell, and had good warranty coverage comparing to many others. I do prefer to go with smaller businesses as they have less hierarchy to go through before reaching the right person, and I think with Ricardo, I would have more peace in mind at an affordable price. The job was completed within a week I made the decision, and it was done within an hour. I didn’t have to evacuate, didn’t smell anything, and I know I’ll be covered if I see additional termites in my home. Very happy this is finally handled and would recommend ER pest and termites to anyone in need.

I found termite dropping in my dining room. Since I didn't want my tongue in groove ceiling spot treated, I decided to fumigate. I found Pest Shield on this site and decided to go with them based upon past reviews. Sean was on time, knowledgeable and arranged the fumigation according to my schedule. Yes, I would recommend them. What I assumed would be a daunting task was completed with very little hassle.
