Abstract

We collected survey responses regarding the attitudes of home owners toward Formosan Subterranean Termite (FST) control. Median value for willingness to pay for a termite control program is found to be $0.16 per square feet per year. A contingent ranking analysis indicated that most homeowners opt for a minimum cost control alternative for FST control
