Are pest control services worth the money?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

Exterminators and pest control services are often worth the money if you have a serious infestation or you don’t know how to identify the source of the problem. 

Often, a professional is better skilled at identifying the source of the infestation and taking measures to prevent future infestations. This may include severe infestations of ants, termites, cockroaches, rodents and other pests that pose a threat to your health and the structural integrity of your home. 

However, pest control services may not be worth the money if it’s a problem you can take care of yourself, like cleaning the house to stop attracting flies or ants, or sealing exterior openings to keep mice out.

If you’re unsure if you need to hire a professional or if you can combat the problem on your own, talk to some of the best exterminators near you. They can help you determine if you need professional help.
