Termite Fumigation Cost
What is Termite Fumigation?
Treatment with fumigants is rare in Australia. The most common types of termite treatment are chemical barrier treatments like Termidor, physical barriers (Termitemesh, Granitgard etc.) dusting by Arsenic or Termidor dust and a wide selection of baiting systems.
Some of the factors that may affect your termite treatment costings are:
- The size of your property: termite quotes are often calculated per square foot or metre as this indicates the amount of product that must be used and the time the job will take.
- The location of your property: if the nearest termite control company is a hundred kilometres away, the additional travel time and fuel costs will make the final quote more expensive.
- The number of structures on your property – if you have sheds or multiple dwellings on acreage, it stands to reason that the termite treatment proposal will be much higher than it would be for a single average sized structure.
Likely Cost of Termite Fumigation
Fumigation can cost around $10,000 so it’s a good thing that it’s much more likely your Australian home has subterranean termites than Drywood termites! Chemical barrier treatments (for example, a Termidor soil barrier treatment) you can expect an estimate of between $2000 and $5000 for a suburban home.
So before you jump in and order a service you don’t need, speak to a licensed termite control expert who can determine the species of termites you have and advise you on the most appropriate method of termite treatment.
