What Is Termite Tenting?
Termite tenting is the name given to a pest control process of fumigation, or pumping poisonous fumes into a room or space, where a large home or structure is covered by a tarp or other material that is joined at the seams to form a “tent” over your home.
The covering of your home or structure with this “tent” traps fumigant (poisonous gases) inside to help it stay in place and penetrate every part of the home, even into the wood timber of your retaining walls and other structural elements like trim, finished wood and furniture. Tenting as a control method can also be used to insulate for a heat treatment termite control process in which hot air is forced into the home to heat all the wood elements to at least 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
Tenting is an extremely effective means of eliminating of well-established, difficult to access, or just particularly stubborn termite infestations. It is costly, involves some risk, and is very time consuming. During tenting, you and your family must vacate your home for 2-3 days which can add to the cost of the whole process.
Average Cost of Termite Tenting
The cost of termite fumigation often includes the price of a home inspection, which can assess where the termite infestation is located, how widespread it is and how well-established your termite infestation really is. Depending on the results of the inspection, you are likely to get a quote for the price of tenting for termites.
Most companies will charge by the linear footage of the home, but others may use a different metric to bill for services. Depending on how your pest control service determines their billing, the average cost for tenting for termites for an average-sized home can be anywhere between $1,200 to $3,000 and more if your home is on the larger side. Any attachments to your home, such as decks, wood patios, sheds or garages will add to this estimate.
Some pest control services will have tenting or fumigation plans that include the cost of the initial inspection and any follow-up visits to inspect for new termite activity. Some even include coverage against treatments and damage costs in the future if any activity returns.
