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.

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.  

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.

Hero Pest Solutions was a pleasure to deal with. They were very responsive and were punctual not only for the free inspection but arrived on time for the service. We requested inspections from 3 companies and Hero was the most knowledgeable and also had the best price! Hopefully we never need termite treatment again however if ever do I know Hero is just a phone call away.

Stay away! Scammer! On the personal level, very nice guy; but professionally terrible experience. First of all he says he has expertise in termites and he shows up with his brother in law who I believe watched a couple of videos on YouTube and now they are going around scamming people. This is my experience: They came in for an inspection. On that day I was recording videos of what they were saying (with their permission) so that I could share with my husband later. Any questions that I would ask Kurt he would refer to his brother in law; so I realized right away that he didn't know what was going on. I have them on video telling me that I had a huge infestation and that their spot treatment would treat the issue and would kill the termites on contact, instantly. Initially that day they would point with an infrared camera (which you can rent at home depot yourself) to the walls and they would say things like "oh woww look at that nest over there" "oh wow huge activity over here" and they would point to yellow/red areas with the camera in the walls. They charged me by #of walls that they saw "activity" with camera. I asked them if it would be better to tent and they said "well it will require a crane bc your house is 2 stories and your infestation is very condensed to specific areas" "we believe it should be fine if we spot treat". That should have been my red flag but I believed them and hired them. They also said that we had to be outside the house bc it was very strong etc. When they came to do the service, my family and dogs stepped out and only my husband stayed inside with an N95 mask. He took pictures of the chemical that were using and guess what? It is a stored bought can that you can get yourself at home depot that costs $25 and it's called Fipro. They just drilled huge holes in my walls, sprayed that foam inside and put a disgusting gray cap in the hole and left the wall like that unfinished. they went about their thing, "finished", charged and left. We were told not to go in for 4 hrs after. When I come back I realized that they treated half the walls they said I needed to be treated and charged me for. I called and they came back to retreat a couple days later. On that second time around, I asked them if they could show me with their camera that I had no more termites in the walls. And reluctantly, they point the camera and guess what? The same image as the first time was there! And I ask them wait what is that? There are still termites and they respond oh no that's the heat emitting from the outside that concentrates in the junction of the wood beam between the wall and the ceiling. And I confronted them about it and asked them well the first time you said that was a huge nest of termites and now you are saying that's heat from the outside? They were like we'll no it was a mixture blah blah blah now they are gone. So either they lied the first time in making me believe that I had a bigger problem than what I really had. Or what they did, didn't work and I still have termites. 1 month later I still have termites bc I see their wings laying around my home and when I texted him about it he now says it's normal for them to take longer than 2-4 weeks to die. Mind you, during the inspection they said it was instant! Upon contact! But if you read the Fipro can it says up to 7hrs if done correctly or may need retreatment. In any case, terrible experience and completely waisted my money. Now I have to do a REAL termite extermination and hire someone to patch up the walls that they completely destroyed. I hope this is helpful and that no one hires them for that job bc I would hate to have anyone else be scammed by them like I was.

I just wanted to say jay did a AMAZING JOB . Literally me and my husband went thru 6 different companies to see who had the better prices and what they had to offer us when it came to getting our house fumigated. And Jay was the ONLY person who came into our house Told us about the dropping and walked up to a piece up wood open it up and found Termintes he showed initiative and he has been doing this for a long time the process was easy he answer any questions we had. It was just smooth sailing from there . I highly recommend BPM Environmental Solutions and of course we don’t have any more termites!!!
