How Much Does an Exterminator Cost?


If you’re looking to hire an exterminator, there’s no time to waste. But how much does a good one cost, and how can you ensure they’re reputable? You may have a tight budget and want to try to eliminate pests yourself with a DIY method, but this can backfire and result in even more issues. The trained experts at Ledford’s Pest Control have made it our mission to help identify and eliminate virtually all types of pests from your home or business in a fast, thorough manner.

The Average Cost of an Exterminator

The exact price of extermination services depends on the type of pest problem being addressed. Depending on the type of pests and the extermination process necessary, the cost can range from $100 to over $2,500.

The final cost will be determined by three main factors:

  1. The size of the infestation
  2. The type of pest(s)
  3. The size of your home/business and area that needs to be treated

Things to Consider When Hiring a Pest Control Company

When you have a pest problem, time is of the essence. You may need emergency pest control, which will cost more than a standard service call. However, even when you have to find a pest control company right away, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you get the best deal and long-term solution.

Local companies often provide better prices and faster service than commercial companies. Ledford’s is a family-owned and operated establishment that has exterminated pests throughout Charleston, Columbia, and Florence, South Carolina areas for over 40 years.

You should also look at the services a pest control company offers. Pest control should include a range of extermination and management options, including traditional methods and non-toxic alternatives. Greater options will also ensure that the pests in your home or business are treated properly. Every insect is different, and specific treatments or chemicals are needed to thoroughly exterminate an infestation and make sure that it doesn’t return.
