How Much Do Exterminators Typically Cost?

Removing Unwanted Pests

If you want to remove unwanted pests from your home, but you're worried about the potential costs of hiring exterminator, you're probably wondering how much they typically cost. Pest control services can vary greatly, from using pesticides to kill cockroaches, ants, and hornets, to trapping various wild creatures that has found their way into your home. Pest control and elimination costs will vary according to the pests that need to be dealt with and the removal method employed. Here is a rough break down of what many exterminators charge for services based on the type of pest problem you have.

Ants, Cockroaches, Spiders, Crickets, Millipedes, and Centipedes

These pests are the easiest to remove, with the lone exception of the German cockroach, which is not included in the above roach category. The price range for this can vary greatly, with exterminators charging anywhere from $50 to $300 for the first application. The prices vary based on the size of the house, the exact pest being eliminated, and whether both the interior and exterior need to be treated. After the initial treatment, you may need follow up treatments for maintenance, but these will cost less than the initial treatment. Monthly applications can range from $25 to as much as $75, while quarterly visits can range from as little as $30 to as much as $125. Thus, your annual cost could range anywhere between $300 to $500, or possible more.

Bed Bugs

Bed bug removal starts with an inspection, which may be free, but can also cost as much as $50 to $200. If a bed bug dog is needed to find and detect bed bugs, you may be charged anywhere between $300 and $600. Bed bug treatments are charged on a per room basis, and exterminator services can cost between $250 to $900 per room. Bed bug removal can be an expensive endeavor, with total costs ranging between $1,000 to as high as $10,000, depending on what needs to be done to fight the infestation.

Wildlife

If you have unwanted wildlife in your home, such as in your crawl space or basement, the safe pest removal costs can range between $200 and $1000, depending on what type of animals are present in your home, as well as the difficulty of the removal. A very large rat or mice infestation, for example, can cost upwards of $2,000 to remove, while snake removal might only cost you $100.
