- Does the company offer free re-treatments if problems arise between recurring visits?
- Does the one-time service agreement offer free re-treatments within 30 days?
- Does pricing go up or down based upon your square footage?
- Is there a price difference between organic and conventional pesticide treatment options?
- Does the pest control company offer guarantees on bed bug treatments and termite treatments?
- Do the pest control company offer animal control, termite control, fumigation, and other specialized services?

FAQ About Pest Control Costs in Orlando
There are many ways to get rid of mosquitoes (and prevent mosquito bites) in your Orlando lawn:
Eliminate breeding sites
Anything that holds water must go. Drill holes in tire swings, get rid of plant saucers, and store buckets and kiddie pools in a shed when not in use.
Use a larvicide
Bti, or Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis, is a convenient, safe way to kill larvae in containers that you can’t empty, such as water-holding plants (like bromeliads) or open rain barrels.
Use an adulticide
This is a last resort option. Killing adult mosquitoes also means killing beneficial insects, including honey bees and butterflies. Use the preventive options listed above first, then consider organic adulticides, and only use chemical insecticides as a last resort. If you decide to spray for adults, avoid the flowers and don’t spray during the daytime hours, when bees are most active.
If you’ve never lived in Orlando before, you may be used to DIYing your home pest control. In Florida, this is usually not recommended. Florida is hot, humid, and swampy. These pest-friendly conditions mean pests have lived here a lot longer than you have, and it takes a herculean effort to keep them out of your home.
It’s best to let a pest control professional do an initial inspection and recurring treatments. During the inspection, the pro can advise on ways to prevent pests from entering your home in the first place.
Here are a few tools and methods pest control pros use that don’t involve any spraying at all:
• Add mesh screens to cover or repair openings
• Caulk electrical outlets, utility line openings, vents, and other wall openings
• Repair cracks in masonry or bricks
• Eliminate standing water and breeding or resting sites
• Cut trees and shrubs away from the house
• Inspect the roof for damage
After you’ve made sure your home is free from pest welcome mats (in other words, cracks, crevices, and other openings), preventive spraying helps to ensure continued pest-free living.
Saving money on pest control in Florida is more about prevention and vigilance than squeezing pennies. Assuming you don’t already have a pest control issue in your home, here are a few ways to save money on pest control in Orlando:
• Eliminate entry points into your home. This is sometimes called exclusion in the pest control business, and this work usually calls for a pro, unless you’re handy and can DIY the work yourself.
In sum, make sure there are no physical entry points where pests can enter your home (see previous FAQ question). This will cost money upfront (unless you DIY), but it should prevent costly infestations down the line.
• Reduce pest pressure around your home. Pests need food, water, and shelter. If you eliminate these things inside and outside of your home (as much as possible), you’re on your way to preventing costly problems in the future.
Here are a few ways to prevent these pests in your home and lawn:
▫ Cut trees away from the house.
▫ Eliminate standing water, and use larvicides and adulticides judiciously to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard.
▫ Keep the gutters clean; make sure this water is directed away from the house.
▫ Keep the area around your foundation dry. Also, consider an inorganic mulch next to the house (rocks, stones, rubber) to deter termites and other moisture-loving insects.
▫ Maintain a tidy yard. Mow regularly, and eliminate piles of leaves and debris.
• Shop around. When it comes to protecting your biggest investment in Orlando, DIY pest control is dicey. As you can see from our list, pest control companies have different service frequencies, payment options, and plans. Get just what you need, but don’t go overboard, to save money and protect your home from Orlando pests.
