Cost

You generally won’t be able to look on a pest control company’s website and find out information on pricing. That’s because there’s no one size fits all service, and the cost of treatment depends on several factors, including the treatment area, infestation type and size, and what type of treatment is needed. Western Exterminators will do a thorough inspection of your property, determine what you need and give you a cost that makes sense for the service they will need to provide.

COST RATING:

Western Exterminator will give you a free quote over the phone or online. You will have to give them some information about your property and your problem. They will take that information to give you an estimate, but you won’t know the true cost for service until a technician does a proper inspection.

Savings and Deals

Western Exterminator is currently offering 25 dollars off mosquito control treatment for customers who buy a new mosquito control service plan.

Pros

  • Western Exterminator currently offers a discount on mosquito control.
Cons

  • A technician will have to visit your home for an accurate price quote.
