The first thing that most people do when they notice a termite infestation in their house is either panic or get frustrated, which is then shortly followed by a worry for what the price will be to solve the problem. Termites are particularly an issue in the Grand Canyon State; in fact, Arizona is the second-worst state for termites, behind Hawaii. So, when you run into a termite infestation, you could try to handle the problem yourself, but are you sure you really want to do that?
As you know, time is money. And the time that it will take you to research effective termite treatment strategies, buy the proper chemicals and tools, and then actually put all of that into action, you would have been better off by simply hiring a professional who could have gotten it finished much faster. If a professional is quicker (and better), you may be wondering, “How much does termite control cost in the Phoenix area?”
The average termite and treatment plan cost is between $500-$1,000 on average, which can be lower than the surrounding area average of $500-$1,500. Not only does Urban Desert stand out in its affordable cost, but we also pride ourselves on our success and customer satisfaction. With over two decades of experience, we have the knowledge and skills to eradicate termites from your property. We also offer a 5-year warranty upfront with our treatment with the option to renew for 5 more years if you choose. This makes the value of your pest control much more durable with Urban Desert.
Solving a termite infestation depends on a few factors, such as:
Size – Of course, the larger your house is the more it will cost to properly treat a termite problem. This is because we spray our trusted chemicals around the perimeter of your entire house and attack other areas, such as drilling at concrete, foaming plumbing in bathrooms, or inspecting basements and attics. With a bigger property, it will take us longer to ensure everywhere is safe and protected from future infestations.
Treatment – You may prefer a different method of treatment depending on your circumstances, and this can play a factor into cost. For example, there can be: chemical treatments (Urban Desert uses Termidor® HE, one of the most effective termite control chemicals, on the exterior of your home); bait treatments (digging holes to install bait stations that poisons a termite); or tenting treatments (draping a tent over the entire property to safely use chemicals, which is used for larger infestations).
Level of infestation – As mentioned, the intensity of your termite problem will determine how much effort, tools, and labor are needed to handle the problem. Termite infestations can differ case-by-case. For example, you can have a problem in your interior, but it could be a simple fix of foaming a toilet or bathtub to protect those areas, rather than needing to tent your entire house.
If you have any questions about how your situation may affect cost, don’t hesitate to contact us today through our website or give us a call at 602-399-9629. An expert will be glad to walk you through our treatments and even offer a free inspection.
Our recommendation is that professional help when handling a termite infestation is worth it. Termites are persistent and can cause significant damage to a property. Experts are able to quickly and properly handle the problem. While you may kill a termite once by yourself, there is a good chance that you weren’t successful at keeping the issue at bay, because pests typically are bound to reappear without proper chemical treatment.

As a family owned and operated company, we want to treat every house like it is our own and leave it in the best condition possible.
