Whether you’re a business owner or homeowner, you’ve probably come across pests at some stage in your life. Pest Control isn’t a nice to have. Pests can wreak havoc on a property if left untreated. But, just how expensive is a monthly pest control treatment these days?
Generally, pest control companies don’t charge an hourly fee for pest control services. The cost of pest control is calculated by how much is removed. You will be charged a standard fee to have them come to your home or office and treat the infestation. These fees can range from R750 to R1200.
Pest control solutions will be priced differently for homes and businesses due to different needs. Most residential pest control services are only needed for one service, such as controlling mice or treating cockroaches.
In commercial properties, compliance with specific laws, such as food safety laws, often requires ongoing support. The price of services provided by businesses will be impacted by long-term support in the form of integrated pest management programs.
Factors That Determine the Cost of Pest Control
We are often asked how much pest control costs. Even though it is simple to estimate an hourly rate, some factors could affect how much you pay.
The Type of Treatment
The cost of natural treatments is typically higher than that of chemical treatments. For households with children and pets, eco-friendly pesticides may be more appropriate, but they will require more applications. Chemical treatments require fewer applications and last longer.
The size of your property affects the price of pest control. It may take longer for large properties to be treated and more treatments are needed.
Pest Infestation Size
A pest infestation is likely if you don’t have a pest control solution and can’t remember the last time you had a treatment. It may take several treatments to eliminate an infestation.
Your Building’s Characteristics
A residential home will be more expensive than an office block. The materials used in older buildings and the length of time that has passed since they were last treated may result in higher costs as well.
The Number of Treatments
Depending on the type and severity of the pest infestation, you may need to administer multiple treatments to get rid of it. Each additional treatment will cost you more. To prevent pest infestations from getting out of control, we always suggest regular pest management.
