What is a Termite Bond?
When you enter into a termite bond with a pest control company, you will receive a certain number of inspections and treatments within a year to protect your home from termites.
Because homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover termite damage, property owners must go to pest companies themselves for a form of insurance, the termite bond. A termite bond is a contract between a pest control company and a homeowner where the company agrees to provide various termite services for an annual fee. The terms of the bond will vary from situation to situation depending on several factors, but they all work to protect you from infestations.
Why Do I Need a Termite Bond?
Termite bonds are legal contracts made between a pest control company and a client. The bond contract contains important information about the details of services provided, an outline for when scheduled services will occur, and details on all terms regarding pretreatment and warranties included. Bonds are a great idea especially if you live in the southern U.S. where the climate is perfect for termites. They are also wise if your home has a history of termite infestations and needs frequent treatments.
What Does a Termite Bond Entail?
- Initial termite prevention treatment with termiticides when the bond begins
- Annual termite inspection to make sure they haven’t returned
- If they did return, treatment is often at no additional cost
- Some bonds even cover repair costs of your house if damaged by termites after treatment
- Bond renewal occurs frequently after annual inspections
How Much Does a Termite Bond Cost?
Termite bond costs vary depending on the pest control company and the services provided. There is also sometimes more cost involved in getting treatments that go beyond dealing with an active infestation and provide continual protection from termite invasion. However, it’s important to remember that the annual cost of the bond is most likely a fraction of termite treatment should you have an infestation!
