Are you trying to find the best pest control service or just curious as to how much pest control services cost? You might be looking for a straightforward answer or an instant quote, but the truth is that there are a few different factors that play a role in the ultimate cost of these services. 

Let’s take a look at what those factors are:

1. Size of the property

The main factor that determines the price of pest control services is the size of your property. Depending on how big your property is, you can expect to pay anywhere from $130 to $700. For example, a typical cost for a one-time spray treatment for a three-bedroom house may be around $130, while a combined building and pest inspection can usually cost up to $600-$700.

2. The type of pest problem

The price of the treatment depends on the kind of pest problem you have and not just the size of your property.

These are some of the most common pest problems homeowners face and the approximate prices for their treatment:

  • Termites : Termite control can cost around $200 if the infestation is controlled and in an isolated area, and can go higher depending on the extent of the infestation.

  • Possums : Possum removal generally costs around $200, but the price can vary depending on the number of possums that need to be removed and how easy or difficult the technician’s access to the roof is.

  • Rodent removal : Mice and rat exterminator services cost around $150 and $440, which depends mainly on the extent of the infestation, the access to the infested area and the size of the building.

  • Spiders : One time pest control for spiders costs around $180 to $440, depending on the size of your home.

3. Extent of the pest problem

One more factor which plays a significant role in determining the price of the pest control services is the extent of the infestation and the damage it has caused. If the technician is required to seal off entry points or take any additional precautions which are outside the standard treatment, the cost of the treatment will increase.

4. Type of treatment

The price of the services may also depend on the kind of treatment you choose. Typically, you’ll have several options to choose from, such as chemical-free treatments, treatments with insecticides, and so on. Depending on the complexity of the treatment and the amount of time it takes for the exterminator to complete the treatment.

5. Number of treatments

Depending on the type of pest problem you have, you may need to book several treatments to get things under control. Your qualified pest controller will be able to give you an estimate on the number of visits it will take them to get your problem resolved. This will, of course, be reflected in the price of the treatment. You also have the option of choosing a monthly, quarterly or yearly plan as well, which
