Multi-faceted treatment

Type of Method: Orange Oil/Premise/Boric Acid/Bora-CareSq Ft of Home: 1800
Firm: Planet Orange
I had sub infestation with tunnels coming in through the ceiling and drywoods in spots. Premise 75 treated around the perimeter of house and in crawlspace and detached garage. Studs on ~30% of house and crawl space treated with orange oil. Exposed wood in attics sprayed with boric acid and bora-care sprayed into wall areas where sub activity was noticed. 2 year warranty. The price seems high to me, but the problem appears resolved.

Expensive Estimate?
Amount: $1,400.00
Posted by: a user in Nashville, TN.Posted: September 13th, 2010 10:09AM
Type of Method: Spray liquidSq Ft of Home: 900 living area
Firm: Orkin
Am I off base here? I really want to know. I already have monthly bait service. This was a "complimentary inspection". He looked in the crawlspace under the house. Told me it was too moist (my under-house water heater had been leaking steam under there). Said this was a termite-friendly environment (which makes sense) and they could come in and spray under the house for $1400. The whole scenario seemed odd, he didn't inspect the detached garage (around which I have bait stations as well as around the house) or anything except under the house and offered no solutions except a very expensive treatment.

Preventative

Type of Method: Chemical BarriorSq Ft of Home: 2500
Firm: Cook's
Had a very knowledgeable expert come inspect the home and provide an estimate before I purchased. Termite extermination was 1250 with 260 per year after that. Pest control (ants, spiders, etc) was another 125 per month and mosquito control another 125. I plan on getting a second price since 260 seemed high for an annual cost. The bond/ guarantee is able to be transferred to a buyer if the house is ever sold again.

Subterranean Termites
Amount: $700.00
Posted by: Suzie Jo Jo in Palm Bay, FL.Posted: March 25th, 2010 05:03PM
Type of Method: ChemicalSq Ft of Home: 1160
Firm: Space Coast Pests
Had a swarming of "Subs" coming out of my bathroom at 730 at night. I called my guy and he was here the next day to take some samples of the bugs to confirm variety, and my house was treated that very day (Luckily because they had a cancellation) Cost was $700, got a bit of a discount since family has used them for a long time and I use them for my regular bug control. $85/yr after that and in 6 years when it's time to treat again, I will only have to pay the cost of the chemical, around 300.

Firm: Terminex
Last Friday I saw a few termites in each bathroom (2). Called Terminex and since they had a cancellation they did the treatment on Saturday. I could have gotten it cheaper, but these little critters can eat up your home and I wanted an expert application. Plus the maintenance for the first year is included in the total cost. My house was built 1978 and when you live with humidity like we do in Texas, termites is one of the problem you have to deal with. I was very happy with the service

I would not be proud of spending less than what this artical says a termite job costs. If the company did the termite job correctly they lost money. No way they can do it for 550 bucks doing it correctly.I wonder what he is going to do when all of the termite stations get hit and he has to make a decision to load the station up with 400 dollars worth of bait or be a cheapskate becuase he did not price the job correctly and do something illegal to try and get rid of the termites without a high cost.
Material costs
labor costs
advertisment costs 50-100 dollars to gain 1 customer
insurance
phones
stationary supplies
truck expences costs 50 cents a mile to drive
Business registration
lecencing uniforms cost to buy equipment and replace broken equipment A 550 dollar job tells me he is a fly by night operation. He fails as a business man. He is one of those guys who cannot calculate his own expences. He is losing money and not even knowing it.
