I received a quote for a termite contract yesterday. Does this seem expensive?

Question by Chris: I received a quote for a termite contract yesterday. Does this seem expensive?
I know that a lot of variables go into a termite contract, but I undoubtedly need one, as I live in the Charlotte area. My crawlspace is about 1,400 square feet and my garage slab is about 400 square feet. But I received a quote from Orkin yesterday for $ 1,722 (a 20% discount) for a 10 year contract. If that isn’t steep enough, they want $ 110 every 3 months to inspect the area. This sounds insanely expensive. The local company, using the same technology, is offering $ 1,400 max plus $ 110 a year. I’ve heard complaints about Orkin with warranties, etc. Can anyone shed some advice? Thanks!

I have about the same size house in middle ga and i paid $ 1000 to start and about $ 100 a year for inspections. If your getting inspected every 3 months you must be getting those termite thingys (lol) in your yard. I dont have those. If your not then why would they inspect every 3 months.
