How Much Does Pest Control Cost in Melbourne?

Pest Control Cost in Melbourne

Pest control services in Melbourne are often deemed expensive, but they need not be. If you periodically engage a pest control company to inspect and treat your home or business, you will keep costs down in the future. At VIP Pest Control, we continue to invest in our technicians and use high-quality products and equipment to provide customers with long-term satisfaction.

But there are two key considerations to bear in mind.

Firstly, finding a reliable, effective and affordable service from a pest control company is not hard since many pest control companies offer pest control treatment. However, you need to take particular care in making your choice. Pests tend to hide and multiply depending on the environment; therefore, regular treatment is required to keep pests under control. It would be best if you protected your home or business from the perils caused by pests by considering a pest control company with the following features: expertise, professionalism and understanding. A pest removal company that possesses these qualities should be your first choice.


Pest control treatment requires knowledge and experience. Whilst domestic products exist at your local supermarket, not all are effective. They may provide only short-term relief and have uncontrollable side effects. We keep up to date with pest developments and know which products to use and how to use them. This will save you money in the long term as you will spend less time experimenting with household products.


We provide a prompt and reliable pest control service. We take care when we conduct our treatment to ensure no consequential damage to your property, family and pets. All of our products are environmentally friendly. We ask that you comply with any instructions the technician gives so that the treatment can have maximum effect following the service.


Pest controllers provide a service. It is important that they understand the needs of the customer. We offer a range of pest control treatment packages to suit your requirements, time demands and budget. We provide pre-purchase inspectionstermite and rodent control protection plans, individual pest-control treatment, home and business protection, and more.

Secondly, pest control in Melbourne can be cheap or expensive; it depends on what you want. Some might be after a complete inspection and treatment package, where every pest is targeted and controlled. Others might be after a more tailored package depending on what pests they have seen or are worried about. Should you not know what you want, you can ask us to assess your home for pests and recommend the most suitable treatment option.

Whilst we recommend that you leave it to us to treat your home effectively and carefully, there are a few things that you can do to minimise your pest control expenses. Here are a few tips our team recommend.


Leaving food exposed around the house will attract pests. Make sure the doors on the pantry are closed, and food is stored in containers. Vacuum regularly to pick up any dropped pieces of food around the kitchen area and dining table. Make sure your pets do not transfer pieces of food into areas that might attract pests.


Bins, inside and outside your home or business, harbour pests and the odours might even attract small animals like rodents. Ensure that your bin lid functions appropriately and is always closed. Try to tie rubbish in a plastic liner and seal it thoroughly before placing it in the bin to minimise food odours. Periodically, clean and wash your bin thoroughly and wipe with disinfectant to prevent bacteria and mould growth.


Pests hide behind bushes, eat fallen fruit and crowd around flower buds. Trimming the bushes and picking up fallen fruit and flower buds will ensure that your garden does not attract pests. Take time to maintain your garden so that pests have no place to play!
