FAQs are frequently asked questions. We receive quite a few termite treatment FAQs because . . . well, we live in Arizona, the place U.S. termites call “home.”
In fact, that’s one of our most-often-asked termite treatment FAQs:
Q: Why do we have so many termites in Arizona?
A: Statewide, there are an estimated 3-5 termite colonies per acre of land. Termites live in colonies. Arizona sits atop one of the most active termite colonies in the world; a colony so large it’s called a “termite belt.”
Termites work and breed 24/7, so the odds of completely eliminating termites in the state of Arizona aren’t good. But we can eliminate them in your home.
5 Termite Treatment FAQs
Here are other Budget Brothers termite treatment FAQs we receive:
Q: How often should I have my home inspected for termites?
A: If you’re buying a new home, insist on a termite home inspection. (If you’re financing a home purchase, your lender will require it.)
Newer Arizona homes should be inspected every year. If you live in an older home or you’ve had termites in the past, you should consider 2 or more inspections or even better, arrange for termite preventive maintenance. The average cost of termite damage repairs can be $3,000 or more. Regular inspection and preventive treatments are a good investment.
Q: What is the cost of termite treatment?
A: The average cost is $600-$2,400. Here in Maricopa County, termite elimination treatments start at $358. A lot depends on the size of your property and the level of infestation you have. For example, a termite treatment for your garage foundation is much cheaper than a termite elimination treatment plus prevention for a 2-story home.
Q: What should I look for in a termite treatment company?
A: We believe local knowledge is important. But nothing tops proven experience. Signs you’re working with the best pest control company for your area include:
- Has a website (and is available on social media), is local, and is eager to share information so you can make informed decisions
- Has an A+ BBB (Better Business Bureau) rating
- Is a licensed pesticide applicator
- Is active in your community
- Is easy to contact
A: A termite bond is an agreement between you and your pest control company to prevent termites. Each company’s termite bond may be different, so be sure to understand what is included.
A termite warranty is the length of time your pest control company will treat re-infestations free. If you’re buying a home that includes a termite warranty, you should first ask why. Then find out how long it is valid. Ask if it includes inspections, treatments, or cover termite-related property damages.
Q: Will my homeowners insurance cover termite damage?
A: Termite damage is not covered by homeowners insurance.
