The price of a bed bug extermination will depend on the size of the infestation. It can range from a few to many, and the more severe the infestation, the more the exterminator will charge. To get an accurate estimate, a pest control professional will inspect the entire area to determine if bed bugs are present. They will also assess whether the infestation is confined to a single room or is widespread. Bed bugs can easily multiply and cause an infestation quickly.
If an exterminator finds an infestation, they will use special equipment to get rid of the bugs. They will also need to treat all of the furnishings in the affected room. Each piece of furniture will add 30 to 60 minutes to the treatment, and requires more product. For example, three extra pieces of furniture in a bedroom will add an additional 90 to 180 minutes to the treatment. Additionally, the amount of clutter in the home will affect the extent of the infestation. Bugs prefer nooks and crannies in a home, and if the furniture isn’t organized, the pests will have an easier time finding a place to hide.
In general, bed bug extermination will cost between $300 and $500 per room. This includes follow-up visits. Some exterminators will charge you separately for each visit, while others will include follow-up treatments as part of the overall cost of a bed bug treatment plan. As a general rule, you should get at least three estimates to get a fair idea of the cost.
