The cost of an exterminator for fleas varies based on the size and extent of the infestation. Typically, a single room infestation costs less than an entire house infestation. In addition, smaller jobs require fewer resources and labor hours. Depending on the size and extent of infestation, a single treatment can cost anywhere from $100 to $500.
A professional flea control technician will inspect the house for fleas and then treat any areas that are infested. They will also vacuum any areas where fleas might be hiding. They will then apply an in-house topical solution that contains insect growth regulators and adulticide. An exterior flea spray will also be applied near entrances and pet areas.
The cost of a flea extermination depends on the size of the infestation and how difficult it is to access. If the infestation is in a wall or other hard-to-reach area, you may need to pay more. If the infestation has spread to other areas, additional treatments are necessary. The costs may also rise if you want to get rid of all fleas in the house.
A moderate flea infestation costs $180, which typically means the fleas are in more than one room. A major infestation costs $450 and might require multiple treatments.
