How Much Do Pest Control Services Cost?

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, bed bugs, cockroaches, ants and other types of pests in Australia.

And they’re certainly valid questions since a pest infestation, whether it be in a home you’re going to buy or sell, the home you’ve lived in for years, or a business premise, pest issues 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 as it can vary depending on many conditions.

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 for pest treatments.

Acacia Pest Control supports over 200 local businesses and over 10,000 families by providing professional pest control services, solutions and treatments.

Factors Considered in Pest Control Prices

There are many different factors that are considered in determining pest control prices. Your pest control company would need to do an internal and external pest inspection to understand the scale of the infestation and see what treatment methods would be the most effective – which all affect the treatment costs for your pest control services.

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 – a quick treatment for pest control vs an ongoing treatment over a period of time.
  • 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 such as termite control and maintaining the termite barrier around your property.

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.

Our Residential Pest Control Service

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.

At Acacia Pest Control, we support our local community through donations and fundraising to keep our community strong – We now have a special offer of $50 OFF a full timber pest inspection for termites, borers, and fungi.
