What is a Termite Bond?

Termite bonds are contracts with a pest control company that enable you to 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 have the choice to go to pest companies for a different form of insurance known as the termite bond. A termite bond is a contract between a pest control company and a homeowner in which the company provides various termite treatment or prevention services for an annual fee. The terms of the bond will vary from situation to situation, but they all work to protect you from infestations.

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 pre-treatment and what warranties are included. Bonds are a great idea especially if you live in the southern U.S. where the climate is perfect for termites, including Georgia. They are also wise if your home has a history of termite infestations and needs frequent treatments!

What Does a Termite Bond Entail?

Termite bonds vary between companies, but in general, you will receive the following services:

  • Initial termite prevention treatment with termiticides 
  • Annual termite inspection to make sure there are no new signs of termites
  • If there are signs of termites, treatment is occasionally at no additional cost
  • Some bonds even cover repair costs of your house if damaged by termites after treatment

How Much Does a Termite Bond Cost?

The cost of a termite bond varies depending on the pest control company and the extent of services provided within the bond. In some cases, there may be more costs 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 get an infestation!
