Whether you’ve recently moved to a new area and noticed more of a pest problem or your longtime household is suddenly hosting more visitors than you’d like, you may be weighing your options. Figuring out whether you can solve your problem through DIY methods, whether you should hire a professional, and what the average cost for residential pest control is serves as a natural step for many families. Learn about the advantages of professional pest control and find out about average costs.
Pests can cause stress and fear in the home. This is the opposite of what we want our homes to be.
Stinging insects like wasps and hornets send over 500,000 Americans to the emergency room every year in the United States.
Pests can be an aggravation and an unneeded annoyance.
Pests can transmit debilitating and deadly diseases to humans and pets.
The average cost for residential pest control varies based on location, pest types, home size, provider, and more. However, it’s a great idea to gather a few statistics to understand a ballpark cost for your budgeting processes.
HomeAdvisor reports that the average single pest control visit costs between $300 and $550. A single visit requires diagnosis, creation of a treatment plan and the treatment itself. On the other hand, when you set up preventative initial visits and periodic treatments, the average initial visit costs $150-$300 while maintenance visits usually average $40-$70.
While these baseline costs are helpful, it’s important to remember that a wide range of factors can contribute to a different price range altogether. For example, larger houses will require a larger investment to treat. Treating for termites averages $2,000-$8,000, while ant control averages just $60-$125.
