How Much Does Pest Control Usually Cost?

If you have been putting off getting the pest control services you need because you are afraid of the cost, it is time to learn more. Pest control services will not only help keep your family safe, comfortable, and healthy, they will also protect your home from pest-related damage. In addition, you might be surprised to find out just how affordable pest control services are and how many discounts are available. 

Calculating Pest Control Costs

Pest control service pricing will vary according to the square footage of your home, the size of your yard, and how many treatments you want to receive. You can certainly opt for a one-time treatment, but you may be able to save more over time and receive more effective treatments by signing up for monthly plans.

National Averages took a look at national numbers and found that the average cost for a one-time visit from a pest control expert was $170. The general range was $100 to $270. Unfortunately, these numbers don’t indicate exactly what services were rendered.

The averages for monthly contracts depend on the number of visits per year. A monthly service visit that will include mosquitoes, spiders, ants, mice, roaches, silverfish, and crickets will cost $40-$45 on average. If you choose a contract with visits every two months, you can expect to pay $50-$60 and quarterly visits will run $100-$300.

Pest Control Discounts 

If you live in an area with warm weather where pests are active throughout most of the year, a monthly contract will offer the most effective treatment and most affordable option. Depending on the company, you may be able to receive additional discounts for bundling services and/or paying for the entire upfront as opposed to monthly payments. There are plenty of ways to save, so be sure to shop around and ask about discounts.
