Scarborough is an urbanized suburb of Toronto and has pest problems like any other urban city. There are several pest control companies providing pest control service in Scarborough. Every company has a unique selling point and a unique price bracket in which they operate.

I have been serving as a pest control technician in Scarborough and surrounding cities, since about 10 years now. One of the first questions that I am asked by my customers is, “how much is the price for pest control in Scarborough?” So, I would like to elaborate on this topic so that people in need can make better and more educated decisions about receiving pest control services in Scarborough.

Which factors influence price of pest control?

There are several factors that influence the price of pest control. I have listed below few of the major factors:

Species of pest: Every specie of insect, rodent or wildlife has a unique behavioral and life cycle pattern, and may require different pesticides, methodology and number of visits for remediation. So, the price of pest control will heavily depend on the specie of the pest.

Size of the dwelling unit: The size and the number of rooms, kitchens, bathrooms etc. will determine the amount of material required and time required for the pest control service, impacting the price.

Level of infestation: It is a major factor that influences the price as higher infestations will require more man-hours and product supplies as compared to a lower infestation.

When should you use a professional pest control service?

Most people try DIY methods to get rid of their pest problems before contacting a pest control company. I recommend getting an assessment done from a professional as soon as the problem is detected to understand the level of infestation and estimate the expenses to be incurred. Most companies provide free inspection and quote. Below are few cases where you should get in touch of professionals ASAP.

Bedbugs and cockroaches: Cockroaches reproduce very fast and carry diseases. Bedbugs can stop you from having your most need sleep and can cause physical as well as mental trauma and they are very resilient in getting rid of. A professional pest control service can help you stop the problem in its early stages.

Mice/rats: Rodents carry diseases, damage your property and are a fire hazard as they chew onto cables and wires. So, it is better to get professional help rather than wasting the precious initial time.

Carpenter ants and termites: They can eat away the structure of your home and seriously damage it. Don’t waste a single moment after detecting their presence.

Wildlife: Wild animals like raccoons, skunks, possums and rodents may carry diseases and become aggressive while removal. They may cause structural damage and physical damage to you. So do not delay in getting in touch with a pest control company.

Is Pest Control Worth the Price?

Yes, a professional pest control is worth every penny. Though the initial upfront cost of professional pest control in Scarborough may seem to be expensive, it will save you precious time, shield you from physical and mental trauma, protect your home from structural damage and save you from the additional expenses on DIY pest control products.
