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*.
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.
