One of the most frequently asked questions we come across as pest specialists are: How much does ant control cost? There is no hard and fast answer to this, and there are a number of factors that will determine the price of pest control. Thus, it is very difficult to provide someone with an accurate price online. The list of factors that will determine the cost of treating your pest infestation is as follows:
Type of Pest
What type of pest is invading your property? If you’re trying to get rid of cockroaches, it won’t cost the same as an ant infestation since the course of treatment will be different.
The extent of a pest infestation will affect the cost of pest control. For example, removing an established ant infestation will take much longer and require the use of more doses of insecticide than treating a small problem.
The type of pest control treatment required to eliminate the problem will also dictate the overall costs. For example, using sprays and gels to control cockroaches differs from using bait stations to eliminate ants or rodents. Often, there is more than one way to treat one specific pest, and it will depend on the severity, location and circumstances of the problem.
Your property size will have a direct influence on the cost of your pest control services. The bigger the property, the more time it will require to treat and eliminate the problem successfully.
Number of Treatments
Certain types of pests can not be eliminated with a once-off pest control treatment and will require recurring applications. This will reflect on your pest control quote. For example, ant control costs less than rodent treatment as getting rid of rodents require multiple treatments by qualified PCOs to resolve the problem completely.
As a rule, the price between a pest treatment for residential versus commercial is also different. More often than not, residential pest control is a single treatment service while commercial pest control is ongoing. This is because commercial properties require continuous support to comply with laws such as food safety. An integrated pest management solution and long term support will cost much more than a once-off treatment for your home.
