Termite Treatment Cost

Termite treatment cost can vary depending on several factors such as the extent of the infestation, the type of treatment used, the size of the property, and the location of the property.

BUT before I talk about any type of termite treatment cost, let’s wind the clock back a little and talk about what you do when you find or suspect that you have termites. 

If you are like many people you will go into shock mode and start to worry, and I know it’s easy for me to say, to NOT to worry as we at A1 Pest Control Canberra will step you through the process.


  • I can tell you now the type of things that people should not do, is when they find termites is not to disturb them as they will retreat and could pop up in either the same area OR in a completely new area.
  • People also spray them with aerosol or at times throw petrol over them.

None of these things above mentioned will treat or get rid of the termites. You will need to call A1 Pest Control Canberra for the next steps and we will normally come out on the same day to put your mind at rest.

Before we get to coming out to your place there are a number of FAQ questions that you will most likely want to know, so let’s get back to the article.

Termite Treatment Cost

Termite Treatment Cost

On average, this treatment can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. The most common types of treatments include Termidor chemical treatments or baiting monitoring systems.

Termidor termite systems involve applying a liquid termiticide to the soil around the foundation of the property to create a barrier that termites cannot cross.

Baiting systems involve placing bait stations around the property that contain a slow-acting treatment that termites carry back to kill their colony OR depending on the property accessibility the pest control technician may use a combination of both termite methods.

Termidor termiticide will be used to treat the active termites first, and this is done through a transfer system as the termites are a social insects they rub up against each other and when they are treated with the termiticide they unknowingly take it back and kill the colony.

Once the live termites are treated the termite expert will look at piers, subfloor and internal and external walls to measure up and calculate in linear metres to know how much chemical will be used and where it can be applied.

Treatments start around $3,000 – $10,000 depending on the size of the area to be treated,

Baiting monitoring systems can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 again depending if it is used on its own or in combination of both systems mentioned. It is important to note that the cost also can include the cost of inspection, which typically ranges from $286 for a visual inspection and up to $350 for a thermal imaging camera inspection.

A1 Pest Control Canberra are accredited Termidor installers and due to the 8 year $2M warranty they give a condition of their warranty, is that annually the property owner has a termite inspection (at time of writing the cost is $286).

Additionally, ongoing preventative treatments may be necessary to ensure that termites do not return to the property. Remembering living in the bush capital we are surrounded by bush which house termites OUR aim is to protect your investment, your home.

Overall, the cost is a small price to pay  to protect your property from the damage and out of pocket expense that termites can cause.

By all means get a few quotes, but remember to compare apples with apples so you can compare correctly.
