The cost of a service depends on certain factors: the frequency of the visit, the size of the home, and the type of pest(s) causing the problem.
Pest Control Frequency of the Visit
Some exterminators liken their task to house cleaning: the longer you go between cleanings, the harder it is to get the job done. For this reason, exterminators will often have a higher-cost initial visit followed by cheaper maintenance visits.
When researching prices it’s important to learn if the estimates are for an initial visit, a one-time visit only, or a regular monthly, semi-monthly, or quarterly visit.
Pest control One-Time
The typical one-time cost for pest control is around $200.00 to $450.00. This cost is higher than most listed averages because it is a one-time visit only. In these cases, there is usually a lot of work to be done including assessment of the infestation, finding the lair, and identifying entry points into your home.
