What is the cost of mouse extermination? It’s a question that pest control companies answer daily. However, instead of asking what is the cost of mouse extermination I think the real question is: what am I getting for my money?
The extermination of mice at first glance may seem easy, but recently mice have become a year-round business. This means that every pest control company in the area will likely be offering the same services. So, the cost of mouse extermination in theory will be very competitive.
Experience counts when getting rid of mice
A good pest control company is going to use a variety of methods to catch mice. Many pest control companies use only bait in hopes of avoiding a call back to pick up dead mice that a trap would catch. The problem with this is that having a variety of “catch” methods works best for mice. Using only one option is lazy. The Deer mouse and the House mouse will readily check out new things in their area using a variety of methods very attractive to mice.
Next, the cost of mouse extermination wouldn’t be complete without finding out how the mice are getting in to begin with. In the pest control industry this is called an exclusion. The service is becoming very popular. The problem with popularity is that everyone wants to do it and with that comes outrageous pricing. I’ve been in the pest control industry for 27 years and the truth is that you needn’t pay $5,000–$8,000 or more for a company to come out and exclude mice from the house. However, to just catch and kill mice once they’re in doesn’t make sense either. We offer a value added mouse exclusion cost called MouseBarrier. The cost of a MouseBarrier exclusion should range from$750-$2000 depending on the home and whether it qualifies or not.
Competitive prices for mouse extermination and maintenance
Everything requires maintenance and pests are no different. Good pest managers know that control it’s a process rather than an event. The reason is that new pests are constantly trying to get in. With a quarterly service we can stop that.
The typical Envirocare customer pays anywhere from $85-$125 per quarter for this maintenance. This price is based on a typical Connecticut colonial that’s about 2,000 square ft. Our prices will fluctuate depending on the size and age of the home, but it remains very fair for what we include and other companies do not. Our quarterly is recommended after an exclusion and not only includes mice, but other pests like ants, spiders, wasps and 15+ more. Our service also includes FREE re-services if needed!
Mouse extermination need not be complicated nor cost a fortune, but you’ll still need to ask the right questions so you get the best deal.
