How Often Should Pest Control Be Done at Your House?
If you spot a single bug such as a fly, yellow jacket, or ant, there is usually no need for a professional pest control company to come to your home. But if you spot a termite, a bed bug, or any other insect that can cause damage to your family or your home, it is necessary to call an exterminator.

While some extermination tasks can be accomplished in a single visit, others necessitate a longer treatment plan to completely eradicate the pests and stop them from returning. However, the price does not always correspond to the duration of the therapy.
- One-time visit: Even though a one-time eradication may be less expensive overall than a longer-term contract, the actual treatment element may be more expensive. This is due to the fact that a single visit involves assessing the issue, finding the nests and entry ways, administering the treatment, and determining what has to be done to prevent re-infestation. These one-time visits cost between $300 and $550. The price might be a little lower if only one pest—say, a snake that slithered inside from the garden—is eliminated during the single appointment.
- Initial visit: The initial visit, which will cost between $150 and $300, will include the assessment, inspection, identification of entry ways and nests, creation of a treatment plan, as well as the initial treatment itself, for issues that cannot be resolved in a single visit.
- Monthly visit: You might need to hire a monthly retreatment service if you’ve already had a significant infestation eliminated or if you live in a shared building in a multifamily home or apartment and the problem is chronic. These visits cost, on average, $40 to $70 a month.
- Quarterly visit: If your property is particularly vulnerable to pest invasion, you may choose to have treatment four times a year for treatment of seasonal infestations or as a prophylactic step against re-infestation. These typically cost between $100 and $300 every visit, but if you contract for the entire year, you may be able to get a deal.
- Annual visit: An annual treatment for ants or mosquitoes can accomplish two things for people who don’t have persistent or serious insect issues: The treatment will stop even minor seasonal insect infestations and give a chance to regularly check for more sneaky pests like termites or rodents. Depending on your location and the sort of inspections you want, these visits cost between $300 and $550.
When it comes to regularly scheduled pest control, we suggest having your home treated once a quarter or every two to three months.
