For example -
2000 square foot home
Interior soil - 1 gallon per 10 square feet = 200 gallons of Termidor SC.
Exterior foundation - approximately 240 linear feet = 240 / 10 x 4 = 96 gallons of Termidor SC
Total = 296 gallons of Termidor SC.
Cost = Termidor SC 78 oz x 3 = $567
FYI - the above specifications are per the label rate. This is the rate of application MANDATED by federal law (EPA and FIFRA). The problem is that most pest control companies will never use this much Termidor. Most in my opinion would use less than half of the 296 gallons required. This is to save TIME and MONEY.
If you get quotes for this type of treatment, the average price is around .30 cents per square foot. This makes the overall price around $600.00. The chemical cost alone would be around $567.00 so you can see why they cut costs and chemical.

If they are charging over .25 cents per square foot, then the fee would be $3000 + dollars. If they are using only 50 gallons, the chemical cost is around $100 (Termidor SC) The owners probably had a nice vacation somewhere.....
