Bed Bug Treatment Cost
You can expect to pay anywhere between $1000 and $2,000 depending on the scale of the project. However, this doesn’t mean one thousand dollars is the minimum payment. A small house, for example, might only expect to pay on the lower end. Why? It’s because a single room could be infected and nothing else.
Of course, the same works both ways. Therefore, you shouldn’t assume that $2,000 is the maximum cost either. A large home that needs to be heat treated will be closer to $3,000 to $4,000. As a result, the average price is generally $300 to $2,000.
How Exterminators Charge
As a rule, there are three ways exterminators decide on price. The first and easiest is a flat fee. Once you pick a treatment, such as heat treatment, they’ll provide a one-off payment. Other experts will charge per room, which could increase costs. Also, you should expect to be charged by square footage.
Again, a flat fee will be a couple of grand. For a room, it’s usually around $800 for an apartment and up to $1500 for a small house. Per square foot, the cost should come in at between $1 to $3. All these prices are for a wide verity of treatment methods. There are always exceptions and that is why it is very important to call us about your pest issue first before assuming what you will have to pay. There are just so many factors in play that we will need to know the scope of the project before we can give you a solid quote. Just leave a message with us @ 206-321-2085.
Exterminators don’t have one trick up their sleeve. Take us here at Seattle’s Best Pest Detection. As well as using canines, we also have a combination of canine and visual inspections. Steam Treatments are possible, too. Each treatment uses different equipment, and that’s why the price varies. For example, our heat treatment involves heating your home to 135 to 140 F. As a result, we have to go through a thorough process to protect pets and belongings. It’s also incredibly effective and worth the $2,000 to $4,000 payable.
Dogs, on the other hand, cost up to $300 per hour. Is this more expensive than heat treatment or steaming? The answer is no. Our dogs are highly trained and can spot infestations almost instantly. Plus, there’s no need to taint your home with toxic chemicals.
If you think you need help, contact us today, we offer visual inspection. Without a dog, a trained professional will look for telltale signs. They include:
• Live bugs
• Skin casts
