How much does pest control cost?

A pest technician typically starts by inspecting your property for mosquito breeding areas. This usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

Then, a pest control specialist will use a spray to kill mosquito larvae in standing water such as birdbaths and ponds. Some companies use a larvicide briquette, which floats in standing water and releases Bti, a natural bacteria that kills small pests but is not toxic to people or pets, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

They also may spray for adult mosquitoes with a pyrethroid pesticide, a synthetic chemical naturally produced from chrysanthemum pedals. These chemicals disrupt a mosquito’s life cycle and help control the insects long term.

When it comes to cost, a basic treatment is about $80 to $150. However, the price can rise if your property is particularly large or if you have active infestations.

It is also worth keeping in mind that landscaping may be an additional factor when determining the cost of mosquito control. Mosquitoes feed on plant leaves and other organic matter, so controlling grass and shrubbery will help reduce the number of these pests around your home.

In addition, you can try to minimize the mosquito population at your home by using bug-repelling plants and other gardening methods. This can also cut down on your pesticide needs and save you money in the long run.
