The cost of pest control in the United States is less than $5 for a typical household, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Walnut pest controls cost less than a dollar a pound in a typical home.
The USDA said in a statement Tuesday that the average price for the cost of a pest control system is between $5 and $8.
The department’s Office of Pest Management and Control said it expects to receive about 2 million pounds of walnut and other nut and seed products each year.
The department said it has a contract with PAMCO to deliver these products.
The walnut industry employs about 14,000 people and accounts for about 30 percent of the country’s crop production.
Pamco spokesman Scott Hagerty said the company will work with the department to deliver the bulk of the pest control.
Walnut seed is a particularly sensitive crop, and growers have to contend with pest and disease problems that could make it harder to produce more than a single crop.
In addition to the pests, the USDA said the government is currently working to reduce the number of people with asthma and allergies.
