What does pest control cost?
There are two components to pest control, prevention and treatment. Preventitive costs are normally a quarterly or annual maintenance agreement with a local pest control company that covers specific coverage. Been careful when purchasing coverage to see what pests are covered. Many times, an additional agreement or rider is needed to cover termites. Most agreement cost somewhere between $25 to $50 a quarter and cover most common household pests. The second cost is associated with treatment. This cost is incurred when your home has an infestation requiring specialized services to remove the pests. Treatment costs are more expensive. They can be anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars depending on the pests and severity of infestation. To avoid the added expense, it is advised that all homeowners have a maintenance agreement to prevent pests from entering their home and to avoid the costly expense of treatment.
