Average Costs

Average Cost Of Animal Removal $125 - $500 

Any Reputable Animal Removal Company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.

Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:

  • Wildlife control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
  • Don't forget the old saying "You get what you pay for". 
  • There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every job is different.

Remember, the company quoting a low rate may not necessarily be the right company for you. Some companies may offer low hourly rates, but then charge additional "fees" to complete the job. 

You may also need to consider that most companies charge a higher rate for overtime, weekends, holidays and emergency calls.

The best rule of hand is to get an itemized estimate so you know exactly what is expected from the local company.
