How much does pest control in Indianapolis cost?
The price of pest control in Indianapolis depends on whether you are using a one-time treatment or you are signing up for a treatment plan, which usually includes quarterly visits.
Most exterminators in Indianapolis base their prices on the size of the home or business and the type of pest. For example, a one-time treatment for mice in a home of 1,500 square feet should cost roughly $150, while a single visit for carpenter ants in the same home could cost roughly twice that. A termite infestation could cost as much as $1,500 for a home of that size.
Periodic treatments, which are proactive, include an initial visit and then regular visits. In Indianapolis, this may include visits for each of the four seasons. This type of arrangement, usually part of a contract, can average about $150 per visit.
Many pest control companies in Indianapolis will offer a free estimate. Whichever company you decide to go with, make sure that it guarantees its services. If pests return within a certain time frame after a single treatment, or if they reappear between treatments, the company should pledge to return at no charge.
