Pest control prices

The price of a pest control service is a frequently asked question, and concern, for many home and business owners when enlisting professional help to remove a pest from their property.

As there are a range of factors which contribute to the price of pest control, it’s very difficult for us to provide you with an accurate price for our pest treatments online.

How much does pest control cost?

The list of factors which contribute to the overall cost of treating a pest infestation are:

Type of pest

The type of pest which is infesting your property contributes to the overall pricing of the removal service. The cost of treating cockroaches differs from the price of treating a rodent problem as different solutions are needed to resolve each issue.

Size of infestation

The size and extent of a pest infestation in your home or business affects the costs of the pest removal service. For example, removing a large, established flea infestation will take longer and cost more than treating a small, contained flea problem that is treated quickly.

Type of treatment

The type of treatment needed to treat a pest problem will relate to the overall costs of the pest control service. For example, using insecticide sprays to control bed bugs differs from using a chemical-free heat pod treatment to treat them, and the price will reflect the methods and complexity of treatments used. Similarly, the pricing for preventive pest control varies from the cost of corrective, reactive treatments.

Size of property

The size of the property plays a part in the cost of a pest control service. The larger the property the more time is required to successfully treat a pest problem. This will have an effect on the cost of the treatment needed to remove the pest.

Number of treatments

Certain types of pests may require multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected within the pricing of the pest control service. For example, the price of a wasp nest treatment is less than the cost of a mouse treatment, as getting rid of mice requires multiple visits by our qualified pest controllers to ensure the problem is completely resolved.

Residential and commercial pest control

The pricing of pest control solutions will differ between homes and businesses as their needs are different.

Commercial properties often require ongoing support to comply with specific laws such as food safety. Long term support for businesses, in the form of an integrated pest management program, will have an impact on the price of the services provided.

Pest control inspection

To enable us to provide you with an accurate price for treating a pest problem, it requires our expert local surveyors to fully understand the exact pest species and extent of your infestation in order for them to recommend and quote for the appropriate treatment to get rid of pests from your business.

What happens during a pest inspection

  • Our certified pest control surveyor will contact the customer to discuss the pest infestation.
  • The surveyor will then arrange with the customer a suitable time for them to visit the premises to fully understand the extent of the pest infestation.
  • They will inspect all relevant areas of the premises for signs to confirm the extent of pest activity.
  • Our surveyor will discuss their findings with the customer and recommend the most appropriate and effective treatment to resolve the pest problem.
  • They will then provide the customer with an accurate quote for the recommended treatment.
  • Our surveyors will also offer preventative advice including proofing and hygiene.
  • Business customers using our myRentokil portal will also be able to access all this information, including photos of issues and recommendations via their customer account.
