How much does pest control cost?
Welcome to pest control pricing 101
Understanding the options
Most pest control companies provide pest control plans, termite warranties, and services to remove wildlife. Some may offer bundles of products as well.
If you have a specific pest problem, they will sometimes provide a quote over the phone, but often, they'll start with a "free inspection," which is another name for a high-pressure sales visit.
Pest control plans
Most pest control companies offer plans that cover common household pests like ants, roaches, and spiders. Prices range from $70 to $100 per visit and are usually scheduled 4-6 times per year. You can get a price over the phone, and sometimes they are called quarterly plans.
Cingo doesn't offer a quarterly pest control only plan, but we do provide individual pest control services if you have a pest problem or want to schedule a visit.
Cingo plans cover all pests with no additional fees.
Wildlife removal services
Wildlife removal services are often charged on a per-instance basis. Companies usually require a visit to your home in order to provide you with a price. These visits can cost anywhere from $300-$1,500 or more, and they require a $300 annual renewal to ensure these pests don't return.
Cingo plans cover wildlife at no additional fee.
Most companies sell termite treatments separately from pest control plans with a warranty that only covers termites. This typically starts with an on-site inspection. Initial fees range from $500 to $1,000 and carry an annual renewal that averages $300.
Some companies use liquid treatments while others use baiting systems. Additionally, the warranties vary from retreat only to repair and retreat, so you'll need to research to learn more about termite products and warranty options.
Cingo plans include a repair & retreat warranty with no additional fees.
Many companies will not offer pest control pricing on their website or over the phone. If you ask how much something costs, you may be told, "that depends." We agree that every home and each customer is unique, but we don't think that means you should be subjected to a high-pressure, on-site sales visit masked as a free inspection.
