Tim-Bor Termite Treatment Costs

I have a 2600 square foot house in Hawaii. The local termite company wants $2300 to treat it with Tim-bor. That sounds excessive to me since the chemical itself is available for $80/50 pounds [covers 10,000 square feet surface area].
The salesman suggested the product would just be sprayed/painted on. Even allowing for a couple hundred pounds of Tim-Bor, I'm thinking this is a labor charge of $2,000.
How much do termite company's charge elsewhere?
Thanks for any comments.

Sounds very excessive. If you want I can have a lady who owns a Pest control company in Hawaii email you...don't remember which island...but she will shoot straight for you and probably can give you recommendations on who to use on the different islands.
I myself have never treated a whole house with Timbor, and usually don't charge existing customers when treating an exposed area with it. It's cheap stuff.
