Frequently asked questions
How much does pest control cost near me?
Pest control costs $100 to $270 for a one-time service or quarterly visits and $40 to $60 per month or semi-monthly visits. Pest control prices depend on the type of pests, home size, and if you sign a contract. A pest or termite inspection costs $75 to $150, though most exterminators offer them free to earn your business.
Does pest control work, and is it worth it?
Insect, termite, and pest control services are worth it and work to remove pests, prevent home damage, and keep your family and pets healthy and safe.
Pest control is necessary to:
- Exterminate common pests including ants, fleas, mosquitoes, flies, ticks, bed bugs, mice, scorpions, termites, cockroaches, bees, wasps, spiders, stink bugs, insects, and rodents.
- Locate and eliminate the source of the infestation to prevent future issues.
- Prevent pests and rodents from biting you or damaging the home.
- Keep your family and pets healthy and safe by preventing pests from sharing harmful diseases and hazardous bacteria.
How often should you pest control your home?
The average home should schedule pest control services once a quarter or every two to three months. Monthly pest control may be necessary to permanently solve recurring infestations with pests such as ants and cockroaches.
When should I call pest control?
Call a pest control company or bug exterminator when you see pests, droppings, pest-related property damage, or hear sounds.
Signs you need pest control:
- See pest-inflicted property damage
- See pests anywhere in or outside your home
- See rodent or pest droppings and urine
- Hear scratching, scampering, or rustling sounds
Are landlords responsible for pest control?
Landlords and condo associations are responsible for pest control and infestation prevention. However, if the landlord proves the tenant has living conditions or behaviors causing the infestation, the tenant is responsible.
Is doing my own pest control safe?
Setting rat, ant, or roach traps or baits is a relatively safe and cost-effective way of doing pest control yourself. However, misusing chemical pesticides can be harmful and dangerous to your family members, pets, home, and yard.
Do you tip pest control services?
Exterminators do not expect a tip. However, if they go above and beyond or spend more time than expected, a $5 to $20 tip is appreciated.
