Charges For Pest Control Services
There comes a time in the life of every homeowner when mice, rats, fleas, cockroaches and other pests infest their homes. They are not only annoying but also unhygienic — they can even carry diseases. So, when they appear, we might be tempted to try and handle them ourselves. Who knows, maybe we could just set a few traps, and the problem would go away?
Firstly, we have to take note of the fundamental differences between them. Of course, the most obvious difference between mice and rats is their size. The common house mouse is small, weighing around 15 grams, while the rat can weigh up to 300g. Moreover, the typical mouse is a curious rodent, and won’t instinctively avoid any new things in its habitat.
That means that a mouse trap might be a useful pest control tool. In contrast, a rat is very cautious and will need time to adjust to any changes before it becomes comfortable with them. As such, a rat is a lot more challenging to catch.
That is why it’s always better to have trained professionals to handle a pest problem. That is why Apex is here. In this article, we will discuss why pest control is essential as well as give you the average charges for pest control services.
However, we must ask you not to take all the prices for granted. Namely, our charges vary depending on the size of the client’s home and the type of pest problem we have to handle.

Points that Determine The Cost Of Pest Control

Also, after we finish the necessary surveys and reach a price agreement with our clients, we get to work right away.

● The location of our customers
● the size of the property in question
After we remove the pests, we provide our customers with a detailed report on pest management and treatments we applied. We will also offer advice for future pest prevention.
How Much Does It Cost To Get Rid of Mice and Rats?
As we stated before, there isn’t a fixed price for any of the pest control services that we offer. There are just too many factors we need to consider.
Our average charges for rat and mice pest control services start at £110 and include 2 visits to the client’s home. Any additional visit, if the problem persists, costs £25. We have to note that this price only applies to clients in South Yorkshire, and the amount may vary significantly if the clients are far away. Another thing that affects the rate is the proportion of the mouse or rat infestation.
What about other types of pest infestations?
Our prices for squirrel and mole pest control with traps is £45. However, there is no fixed price when it comes to mole infestations on farmland, and the cost depends on the agreement we reach with our clients.
We also offer insect pest control services, with our prices ranging from £65 to £125. Of course, certain insect infestations are tricky, and the charge dramatically depends on the severity of the problem. For example, a woodworm infestation can be very difficult to handle. We would have to perform a thorough survey of the property in question to determine how far the outbreak has progressed. So accessibility to inspect and treat the infested areas will impact the cost.
