Pestcore Termite And Pest Control
Pestcore was recommended to me through a neighbor and I couldn't be more happier. They called and said they are running a little early and if I would mind if they arrived 30 minutes before the scheduled time. The service person arrived and was neat clean, uniformed and wore a photo ID, totally professional. I was surprised to see him wearing booties over his shoes, very considerate. He spent the time he needed to take care of my problems and after he left I never had any more issues. Nice to see professional companies still exists.M. JansonForked River, NJ
Tips & Advices
Fumigation is dangerous to pets and humans. Liquid termicides, however, are safe to use around pets.
No. Because termite infestations are considered preventable, most home insurance policies do not cover treatments or damage.
It's best to treat an entire home to ensure the termite infestation is completely eliminated. Spot treating costs less, but increases the likelihood of missed colonies. In addition, spot treatments can make a home unattractive to future buyers.
The cost to eliminate termites varies depending on the method. Bait costs between $150-$300, while fumigation costs $1,300-$2,500. Heat treatment costs around $1 per square foot, so a 2,500 square-foot home would cost $2,500.
The length of time depends on the process used:
  • Fumigation takes approximately five days. The termites die quickly, but homeowners must remain out of the house until the chemicals clear.
  • Bait exterminations can take months to destroy an entire colony. The bait kills termites during the molting process. If an insect eats the bait and does not molt, it is unaffected.
  • Heat extermination takes approximately eight hours and is environmentally friendly. This process heats the home to 150 degrees F.
