Pest control costs  

The cost of hiring an exterminator can cost between $300 and $500* for a single visit. It’s worth remembering though that paying a professional will help rid your home of pests and likely save you money in the long run.

Types of pest control 


Tackling ants yourself with a spray might kill a few, but it won’t deal with the whole colony. The average cost of a visit from an exterminator is around $250*.



Bee removal is highly dangerous to attempt by yourself. Hiring a professional to remove a hive can cost from $450 but can rise to $1,500 or more if opening a wall is required to access the colony*.


Bed bugs

Buying a bed bug treatment from your local store may not fully eradicate the problem. Hiring a bed bug exterminator can cost from $300* for a small area, but it’s better than allowing the bed bugs to spread and have your entire home treated at a cost of up to $5,000*.



Average prices for termite control are just over $1,500, but if left untreated they can eat into the wood of your home and cause severe damage that could cost thousands of dollars. You may want to ask your pest control company about having a regular termite inspection to ensure the problem doesn't return. 


Frequently Asked Questions

How will an exterminator get rid of my pests?
Serious infestations may require fumigation when your home is sealed off and gas is pumped in to kill the pests. If the problem is confined to a smaller space or single room, an exterminator may be able to treat it using strong insecticides or even a heat treatment with infrared rays. 
Will my pest problem require ongoing treatment?
Some pests, such as ants, termites, and roaches, may return once the initial treatment is complete. Speak to your pest control company about regular inspections. These may be monthly or quarterly, depending on the severity of the problem. 
How can I prevent pest damage in the future?
Many pests are attracted by food and spills, so keeping waste tightly sealed can prevent them from coming back. Another problem is warm, damp environments which attract termites and other insects. Seal up any holes and tackle leaks to prevent the pests from coming back.
What should I look for in a pest control company?
Pest and rodent control are serious issues, so you need professionals you can trust. Ask about licensing and certification, as well as liability insurance. Many companies offer a guarantee and should also issue you with a report of the work carried out, along with advice for future action.
