In addition, it is important that the core of the problem is tackled, otherwise you run the risk of being having to do it again soon after.

How much does professional pest control cost?

Some specialists offer a subscription for which both entrepreneurs and individuals are eligible. Such subscriptions run on a monthly basis and often include solutions for different types of pest control. Such a subscription costs between 16 and 45 dollar per month.

  • Removing silverfish: from $70,- dollar at a time
