How often should pest control be done?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

This depends on several factors, including:

  • The type of pest
  • The severity of the invasion
  • Your home’s characteristics
  • The quality of the pest control company’s work

In some cases, you might require pest control services three to four times a year. Or, you might need services monthly or every few months. 

Talk to the best exterminators near you to get an idea of what type of service you need — and how many times you’ll need follow-up treatments.
