Pest control prices

The price of a pest control service is a frequently asked question, and concern, for many home and businesses owners when enlisting professional help to remove a pest from a property.

As there are a range of factors which contribute to the price of a pest extermination, it is difficult to provide an exact quote due to all the elements that must be considered.

How much does pest control cost?

  • The type of pest which is infesting your property contributes to the overall pricing of the removal service. The cost of exterminating cockroaches differs from the price of treating a rodent problem as different treatments are needed to complete this task.

  • The size of the pest infestation in your home or business affects the pricing of the pest removal service. For example, removing a large, established flea infestation will cost more than treating a small flea problem.

  • The type of treatment needed to eradicate a pest problem relates to the overall pricing of the pest control service. For example, the cost of using insecticides to exterminate bed bugs differs from the price of heat treatment. Similarly, the pricing for preventive pest control varies from the cost of corrective treatments.

  • The size of the property plays a part in the cost of a pest control service. The larger the property the more time it will take to fully treat a pest problem. This will have an effect on the cost of the treatment needed to remove the pest.

  • The number of treatments required. Different types of pests often require multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected within the pricing of the pest control service. For example, the price of a wasp nest removal is cheaper than the cost of a rat treatment, as getting rid of rodents often requires multiple visits by a pest control specialist.

Residential pest control and commercial pest control

The pricing of pest control solutions differs between residential and commercial customers due to its varying needs. It also depends on whether the solution offered is a one-time job or on a contractual basis.

The classification of a one-time or contractual based pest solution is also highly dependable on the type of pest. Bed bugs require 2 or 3 treatments for control to be effective. This is despite the fact that the treatment is classified as a one-time job. A termite job requires a one-time drilling treatment which makes the control effective up to 5 years. A general pest contract may carry out weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or bi-monthly inspections and treatments to keep establishments free of cockroaches, ants, rodents etc, especially in our F&B businesses.

In the long term, whether the pest control offered is a one-time or a contractual solution, the best considerations lie in upping the efficacy, ensuring proper and adequate treatments in place to make the most value out of the services.

A good example would be a termite protection program, which offers quality solution with 5 to 7 years warranty versus a multiple spot treatment method which only addresses surface problem with its quick fix nature.
