How to Treat for Termites

Due to the advancements in the pest control industry over the years, it is entirely feasible that your entire termite treatment will take place from the exterior perimeter of your home. The only exception will be if the termites are actually coming from within the home. Only a qualified termite inspector can assess termite damage and make this judgment.

The Basic 5 Steps in a Termite Treatment

1. Dig a 3”x 6” trench against the foundation. Apply material by rodding to a minimum depth of 4 feet

2. Drill a hole through abutting concrete or tar every 12”. Inject material at a rate of 4 gallons per 10 feet

3. Drill abutting concrete stoops every 12”. Inject material at a rate of 4 gallons per 10 feet

4. Provide documentation of termite locations for future record

5. Inspect interior to see if interior treatment is required

Necessary Safety Precautions When Treating for Termites

Connecticut is a state where the product label is the law. The average amount of material to be applied to kill termites can range from 150 gallons to 350 gallons. The products that all exterminators use are meant to be used at this rate. If you have an exterminator that treats only a small area and calls the job done, they likely did not follow the label directions.

The safety of all pesticides depends how they’re used. It’s extremely important that the termite extermination company you use is not only licensed and insured in Connecticut but also has practical experience with all of the safety measures needed when treating a home for termites.

How Much Does Termite Treatment Cost?

The cost of a termite treatment varies wildly in Connecticut because the pest control industry is filled with all different types of companies, from one-man operations to large national companies. In general, a thorough termite treatment is likely to cost in the range of $650-$1,500 depending on the size of the home and the complexity of the job.

When comparing termite control companies, it’s important to look at all the charges involved. Some of the larger companies will charge a low fee for the first treatment then a much higher fee to keep the product under warranty. This is important to know, as the long-range cost for the job could turn out to be entirely more than you planned on spending.
