Pest Control Price Guide

Before you get started with a pest control project, it’s essential that you’ve got a rough idea of prices. This will help you to be able to plan your finances, as well as giving you a way of judging the quotes that you receive. We’ve created a pest control price guide to help you get a rough idea of how much your project might cost.

General advice

Carry out lots of research

Start your pest control project by researching the problem that you’re facing. Investigate the type of pest that’s causing the issue and attempt to figure out the extent of the infestation, if you can. Often, a pest issue is worse than it first appears, since the majority of the infestation is hidden. However, by attempting to figure out which type of pest you have and the severity of the problem, you’ll make it easier for yourself to find an accurate price.

Set a budget

While it may be difficult to set a budget for a pest control problem as the issue will need to be fixed, it’s a good idea to set out a rough idea of how much you have to spend and how much the work is likely to cost. By doing this, you’ll be able to avoid overspending for services that you don’t need.


The price of a pest control treatment can vary significantly depending on the extent of the infestation. Here’s a rough guide to the price of common pest control treatments:

Type of pest Approx. cost for treatment
Ants £60-£100
Bed bugs £140-£160
Cockroaches £150-175
Rodents £125-£200
Woodworm £200-300
Wasps £50-100

All of these figures reflect the average cost for a 2-3 bedroom home with a relatively minor infestation. For more severe infestations such as those which may have built up over several months, expect to pay more. Similarly, if the infestation is affecting a larger property, the price will usually be more expensive.
