Rodent removal is more expensive than other aspects of rodent control, because the exterminator may have to return multiple times. Pest control costs an average of $170 for an initial visit nationwide. Because long-term rodent control and protection often require multiple visits and treatments, pest control companies offer packages with payment plans to help reduce costs.
Cleanup costs can cost an additional $200 – $600 to the overall cost, as cleaning and deodorizing the space after rodent removal is an essential part of pest control. The price of rodent control will vary depending on the size of your home, location of the infestation, and the materials and labor involved.
What Is Rodent Control?
Rodent control is a professional service that removes pests such as mice and rats. A professional exterminator will lay traps and bait, remove dead rodents, and seal entry points in your home to prevent a rodent infestation. Fumigation of your house may be necessary. Fumigation treatments are a last resort because of the toxic chemicals involved.
Diseases And Rodents
A rodent infestation poses serious health risks, as pests such as mice and rats live in garbage and sewage. They carry and spread viruses and infectious diseases such as the plague, rat-bite fever, and salmonellosis. A rodent infestation should be taken care of right away to avoid health issues.
Keeping a clean and clutter-free home will help deter rodents, and a professional exterminator can get rid of these pests for good. If you have a rodent problem, deep cleaning your home disposing of food scraps where the rodents made a nest are just as important as taking steps to prevent an infestation from happening in the future.
Rodents Can Damage The Home
You will notice a rodent problem because they leave noticeable signs of damage around the home. Mice and rats like to chew on and scratch furniture and surfaces, leaving marks on baseboards and creating holes in your walls. These pests will also chew on wires, causing your electronic devices and appliances problems.
Very determined with a strong sense of smell, rats and mice will chew through sealed containers and boxes to get to food or produce, ruining both in the process. Not only do rodents wreak havoc inside the home, but they can also damage lawns and ruin gardens by eating plants or digging up seeds and eating them. Pest control is a practical investment that can help you avoid home repairs both in and around your home.
Cost Of Rodent Removal
Many factors determine the cost of rodent removal. The average price for rodent removal is $300 – $500 for a single visit. That fee often does not include additional extermination services. The exterminator will not only remove the dead rodent but sanitize and clean the space.
Routine Rodent Control Saves You Money
The cost of a single rodent control treatment can be $150 or more. Because most pest control treatments and extermination services require multiple visits, investing in a rodent control plan is worth investing in. A monthly plan is more cost-effective and will go a long way in preventing a future pest control problem, with routine visits, inspections, and other maintenance work, such as sealing any entry points in your home.
