Pest Control Costs

There are several questions that we often get asked, but one of the most common is about the costs of pest control services and treatment. Whether the pest control is for a home or business, often the first question asked is: how much does an exterminator cost?

That is a question that can be tricky to answer. There are a lot factors that go into pest control prices. Having a one-size-fits-all pricing structure is nearly impossible, but here are some of the things to consider.

Of course, if you have any concerns about pest infestations you can contact us online and set up an appointment straightaway.

How much does an exterminator cost?

Here are some of the factors that go into exterminator costs:

  1. Pest type - there are certain pests that require a lot more work and more follow up than others. Bed bugs, for example, often need follow up visits and specialized training and tools to find. Termites also usually require follow ups and spot treatments.
  2. Infestation - just how badly are the pests invading your home or property? If the infestation is large, it is almost impossible to do just one treatment and get them all. Many visits and even multiple treatments may be necessary.
  3. Treatment Process - there are a wide variety of treatments necessary to take care of pests. Rodents need one kind of treatment, but insects need something else. Bed bugs require one treatment option, and termites need another. All of these factors into the pricing of pest control.
  4. Number of Treatments - since some pests are harder to get rid of than others, the pest control treatments you receive may require a number of visits from pest control specialists
  5. Property Size - it’s one thing to do pest control on a small, two-bedroom house and another thing entirely to provide pest control for a block-sized warehouse. The size of the property can drastically influence pest control costs.

Residential vs. commercial pest control treatments

When it comes to pricing pest control treatments, a lot depends on the type of pest control that Western Exterminator is doing. If you own a residence or a commercial property, there are different types of pest control solutions necessary and that can affect the price. A residence with an ant problem may not need as much of a continuous pest control treatment plan as a business that produces food will need.

Commercial properties, for example, often require more follow up and much larger use of traps, baits and other treatment methods. There are also often factors that go into treatment regarding laws around food, medicine and other products produced by the business.

The pest control inspection

The key to determining the price of any pest control service starts with a very key component: the property inspection. This is the key step that each pest control specialist has to take, whether the property is a home or a business, to determine the nature, size and species involved in the pest infestation.

What happens during a property inspection?

  • We will work with you to set up an appointment for the property pest inspection and discuss the procedure.
  • Our pest control specialist will arrive on time and ready to conduct a full property inspection, focusing on the key areas where pests are most likely to nest and to get inside. We discuss what pests have been seen or pest issues that have occurred in the past, too.
  • Once a complete inspection has been done, our pest control specialist will discuss what we find with you and then make a recommendation for the best form of pest control treatment to alleviate the infestation.
  • Once the inspection and treatment discussion is over, an estimate for the cost will be presented to the resident or property owner.
  • Our highly trained pest control experts will offer advice to prevent infestations and other ways to proof the buildings and property from pests.
  • For business customers, information about the inspection and treatment is accessible through an online service.
