Pest Control Service Cost
How much do pest control services cost? The answer to that question depends on the size of your home. Larger homes have more hiding spots for bugs, so they will typically cost more. Keeping pests outside your home may help reduce the cost of service, but sealing entry points will increase the price.

This article will examine the cost of rodent prevention and the quarterly visits that are most effective for controlling pests. It also discusses the costs of electronic pest deterrents, canine inspections, and quarterly visits.
Costs of Rodent Prevention
There are several different types of rodent control methods available. These methods vary in cost and effectiveness. Some are more humane than others, but all require live removal of the rodents from the home. These methods can cost from $150 to $350 per visit. While live trapping is more humane, you need to be aware that the rodents must be transported at least a mile from your home, and this can result in extra costs. Similarly, poisons and traps may be necessary for certain types of mice infestations.
Cost of Electronic Pest Deterrents
There are a variety of electronic pest deterrents on the market, and the prices for these devices vary considerably. Some are intended to deter almost all pests, while others are designed for specific types of insects. The cost of such a device depends on the type of pest it targets and its features. For example, a $60 device can be effective for 7,000 square feet and comes with a built-in LED light that indicates it is working. However, it does not cost that much to purchase a six-pack of these devices.
Cost of Canine Inspections
While it’s difficult to predict the cost of canine inspections for pest control services, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your home will be free of bedbugs. A team of canines can identify individual bugs or a full infestation. In either case, early detection can save you money and minimize business disruption. In addition, canine inspections can be used to detect hidden signs of pests.
Cost of Quarterly Visit
The cost of quarterly visits to a pest control service will be between $125 and $200 per visit. The initial visit, which involves identifying and treating the infestation, will be more costly, since follow-up visits are necessary to ensure the treatment is effective. But if the cost is consistent, it is easy to plan ahead and stay within your budget. A quarterly pest control agreement is also a great way to avoid a costly infestation by paying for a single visit instead of having to pay for a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis.
Cost of Annual Service
The cost of an annual pest control service varies widely. It can range from as little as $25 to as much as $10,000. Physical extermination services, for example, will often involve trapping animals and releasing them into the wild. The cost of this service is significantly higher than the regular maintenance visits. A chemical application, which may involve spraying, baiting, or powdering, may cost anywhere from $200 to $1,000 per room. You may have to leave the house for the treatment, so budget for this cost as well.
Travel fees for pest control services are common because pest control companies have their standard service areas, but they may be more expensive in rural locations. Most pest control companies offer free quotes and estimates, and these can help you determine the level of infestation and the level of action required. Free quotes can also help you choose the most qualified pest control company, as you can compare different companies’ prices and services. In addition to saving you money, free quotes and estimates will help you identify the best company for your needs.
