How much will it cost to get rid of a mouse infestation?

Question: How much does it cost to get rid of an infestation of mice and cockroaches in an apartment? It has already been inspected, but they didn’t give me any price quotes.

 

 

ANSWER: Mice are curious and can enter homes or businesses unnoticed. They can reproduce quickly and contaminate surfaces as well as spread diseases.

A thorough inspection by an Orkin Pest Specialist is required in order to identify points of entry and conditions conducive to mice infestations. The inspection will be followed by recommendations for removal of food sources and exclusion measures to keep mice out. A comprehensive plan for trapping the rodents will be developed. This is all labor intensive, and follow-up visits are usually required.

Getting rid of mice is not easy, especially if there is a huge population. The cost will vary, depending on the results of the inspection and what it reveals about the extent of the infestation, so it is best to take action early.

In your case, you mention that you live in an apartment. These are usually connected to one another; therefore an infestation in one apartment can be an indication of an infestation in several units. For this reason, to give an accurate price that takes into consideration factors such as those mentioned is difficult.

Contact your local Orkin Branch and set up a comprehensive inspection by a highly trained Orkin Pest Specialist. Your specialist will assess the situation and develop a customized treatment plan, based on science, that best fits your needs. As I mentioned before, it is best to take action early.
