Professional pest control companies are often asked by home and business owners how much it will cost to remove termites from their properties, or the costs to get rid of other pests like rats, mice, problem birds and more. And they’re certainly valid questions since a pest infestation, whether it be in a home a home you’re going to buy or sell, the home you’ve lived in for years, or a business premise, can pose some very serious problems. Termites can chew on the structures of a home and slowly deteriorate any wooden furniture, and bird droppings left behind by problem birds can pose as a health hazard. However, how much it will cost to treat, remove and control pests is not something a pest control professional can tell you straight away. There are many factors that can contribute to the price of pest control, and each job is different, so it’s very hard to provide accurate pricing for the service online, and instead you should opt for an in-house inspection to get an accurate cost.
Acacia Pest Control supports over 200 local businesses and over 10,000 families by providing professional pest solutions.
Factors Considered in Pest Control Pricing
The list of factors considered in the overall cost of treatment, removal and control of a pest infestation are:
- The Pest: The cost depends on the type of pest, e.g. ridding your home of cockroaches will be a different price than eliminating rodents as different methods are used.
- The Size: Yes, size matters here – treating a big, established flea problem, for example, takes longer and will cost more than a smaller, and more contained one.
- Treatment: The kind of treatment needed affects the price.
- Property: The size of the property entails how much time and money will be needed for the service.
- Treatment numbers: Some pests need repeat treatments to control them successfully.
Acacia Pest Control specialises in providing information, advice and services for all pests including termites – Since 2000, Acacia has expanded from operating locally in Bellarine Peninsula to servicing the wider Geelong areas including the Western District, Surfcoast, Golden Plains, and Melbourne regions today.
Residential Pest Control
Because the needs of commercial premises and residential homes are different, the cost of pest control services also reflects this. There are specific laws that commercial premises have to abide by with regard to pest infestations, health and safety of employees and customers and food safety. Pest infestations in commercial properties also often need ongoing support such as an integrated pest management program to comply with these laws – all of which impacts the costs of the service.
