How Much Does Pest Control Service Cost?
Are you experiencing a pest problem in your home and are almost ready to call for reinforcements? Perhaps what’s holding you back from picking up the phone to call a local pest control company is wondering how much pest control service will cost, what pests are covered, and what’s included in the service. Well friends, here at Northwest Exterminating, we are here to answer all of your questions!
Before we discuss the cost of pest control, let’s talk about DIY vs. professional solutions
We understand that everyone wants to save a dollar or two where they can and while we appreciate and respect that opinion, there are times when that isn’t always wise. Pest control is one of those areas where there are plenty of DIY options on the market, but in the end, they may not deliver the results you were hoping for. What do we mean by that statement? Here are a few examples that demonstrate how self-treating can go wrong:
- Using twice as much product, thinking the more the better
- Using OTC pest control products without reading the label(s)
- Not preparing products according to the label directions
- Applying products labeled for outdoor use only inside
- Attempting to treat an insect infestation with a chemical that is designed for another
- Laying down products without regard for people and pets that frequent those areas
- Treating for pests only in areas where you’ve seen activity
- Setting mouse traps in areas where mice won’t visit
- Using the wrong bait to lure in insects and rodents
The reality of treating insects and rodents is that it’s not as simple as it may seem and if not done properly, the problem will only grow worse and/or spread and you may jeopardize the health and well-being of your family and pets. Plus, you could end up spending more on DIY pest control products than you would by calling in pros!
For optimal results and in the best interests of your family, contacting an exterminator at the first sign of a pest problem is the way to go.
Okay, so how much does pest control service cost?
How much you can expect to pay for pest control service really depends on the service(s) you’re looking for. Let’s unpack this a bit.
One-time service vs ongoing pest control
The frequency of service will influence how much you pay for pest control services. If you’re looking for a one-time treatment for a specific problem, you could end up spending more on a single treatment than on an ongoing plan. Here at Northwest Exterminating, we offer year-round home pest control services that protect against several household pests at an affordable monthly rate. In the case of ongoing service, most pest control providers assess an initial service fee.
The plan you pick
Here at Northwest Exterminating, we offer three different home pest control plans because we understand that homeowners want options. Why pay for a plan that includes digital rodent monitoring when you’ve never had mice or rats pestering you? To give you an idea of what our residential plans include and what you can expect to pay every month when you sign up for one, please check out the comparison chart below!
The type and severity of the initial pest problem
As we touched on briefly above, most home pest control plans include an initial service fee which is determined by the type and severity of the existing pest problem. The initial cost to exterminate termites will be more than treating ants in the kitchen.
