Termites are extremely destructive pests that can cause damage to many structures. On the other hand, Subterranean termites are small soft pale pests that can live in colonies of up to 1 million. If you don't take action, these pests will cost thousands of dollars off your saved monies. Are you insured for this? NO.

What are the costs if I have Termites in my home?
Costs vary depending on areas and sizes of houses so the below costs are ball-park figures based on recent treatments undertaken.
Quick fix cost $300 to $610 inc
City pest control offers a quick fix treatment to an area affected by termites. What we will do is treat the area with a foam or chemical treatment with a repeatable termiticide that uses a non-repellent formula. This will actively kill the termites, and possibly their colony (no guarantee), in the affected area.
Termite colony procedures. $700 to $1000 inc
Here, the procedure becomes a little more evasive. City pest control will be looking to kill the colony including the termite Queen. This will entail additional findings and evasive foaming, spraying of Bait boxes being fixed to affected areas as much as possible to allow the product to reach and kill the Queen. This is a long service that can be taken over weeks or months however effective, with good end results.
The Termite Barrier. $1800 to $3900 inc
The procedure is to dig or drill a trench to the footings of the property and apply a termiticide to the correct amount of liters to the exact trench depth and distance to ensure a termite-free home for up to 8 years.
Please request a quote from our technicians as we can discuss a tailored service for you.
Baiting System. $1250 to $3500 inc
This procedure is quite common in Canberra at the moment as it is easier to install to many homes and can be monitored by our trained technicians. There are pros and cons to each system. Different companies offer different monitoring costs. Our monitoring costs are $17 per week
All work conducted by our team is to Australian standards. All work will be completed with the relevant paperwork and support.
