Termite treatment or extermination can be done in many ways; chemicals, fumigating, bait, electricity, microwaves, and more. But commonly, chemical treatment is used. So how much does it cost to have termite treatment done? It varies, but usually, baits are more expensive. For chemical termite treatment, you can expect to see anywhere between $500 to $3,000 depending on the size of your house.

For example, you can expect to pay about $500 – $1,000 for a small house and $1,000 – $2,000 for a medium house and it can go up. But the average price for a medium-sized house is around $1,300 – $2,500. I have a 900 square foot house and because two sides of my house are connected with other houses, I had Termidor applied to the front and backyard only. It cost me about $400.
According to Forbes Home, the average termite treatment cost in the U.S. is around $575. The average cost for bait station treatment ranges from $7 – $11 per linear foot, and $1 to $4 per square foot for gast fumigation treatment.
You will notice that a termite treatment professional you hired will ask you if you’d like to signup for yearly renewals as insurance. It will cost you anywhere between $150 – $300 for chemical treatment and $300 – $500 for baits. So before you signup for a termite control service, always compare with other companies and ask how much does termite control cost.
