You can put off fixing the sprinkler system. Some property problems are inconvenient, but you can live with them. You can’t live with termites. The cost of termite treatment may be a strain on your budget. If you wait, the damage – and expenses – will multiply.
Direct and Indirect Cost of Termite Treatment
In Arizona, the cost of termite treatment should include regular inspections and maintenance. Property damages from termites are preventable with standard maintenance. Damage costs aren’t covered by many homeowner’s insurance policies for that reason. An experienced and reputable pest control company will have an affordable maintenance plan.
Termite treatment in Phoenix starts at $375. (Average cost in the U.S. is $767.) That’s a direct cost. But property owners pay over $5 billion every year to repair property damage from termites. That’s an indirect cost.
The Wrong Company Can Hurt Your Home
Waiting too long can make the cost of termite treatment much higher. If you choose the wrong termite control company, damage control costs can be even more.
You have termites and you get a really great deal from an exterminator. You have reason to believe your home is free from termites. Termites are called “silent destroyers.” Termites can quietly cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damages and you won’t know – until the damage is done.
Meanwhile, the original exterminator – who offered an ironclad warranty – is nowhere to be found.
The Wrong Pest Control Treatment Can Pose a Health Threat

Today’s termiticides are odorless. That’s great news for you and your family as the professionals at Budget Brothers Termite & Pest Elimination follow manufacturer’s guidelines and apply all materials properly.
Not all pest control companies care this much. This may post a health hazard to you, your family, and your pets.
Some damages can’t be measured in dollars and cents. If the cost of termite treatment includes health risks, then you’ve paid far too much.
Cost of Termite Treatment Includes Structural Inspection
You choose local pest control professionals because they take responsibility for their work. They live in your city; your neighborhood. Good people don’t take advantage of their friends and neighbors. They’ve been here for years and you can depend on them to be here when you need them.
One of the hallmarks of a professional termite control company is they report structural damages. It may not be great news, but you need to know about it.
The cost of termite treatment may not include repairs if you have property damage. Some minor repairs are easy. If you need extensive damage control, your pest control pros won’t keep you in the dark.
Basic costs for termite damage can be over $600 and include:
- Clean, repair structural framing
- Cut, remove damaged materials
- Patchwork material application
The cost of termite damage-repair supplies is about $75. It may include:
- Dimensional lumber
