3 Benefits of the Pest Control Business

Pest control business opportunities abound in 2019. A quick Google search for “pest control business for sale” yields 81,700,000 hits.

So what makes this business model so popular, and, if you want to buy, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff?

Today’s post explains 3 pest control business benefits as well as why so many investors trusted Pestmaster to build their successful businesses.

High Demand for Services in A Resilient Industry

The US structural pest control market generated approximately $8.175-billion in service revenue in 2016, according to research by Specialty Consultants. With an average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7%, it’s expected to surpass $10-billion by 2020.

This huge market demand is made sweeter by its resilience. Pests are a fact of life–and an essential part of the environment–so the demand for pest control service isn’t going anywhere.

Multiple Revenue Streams

Most first-time investors think of pest control businesses as being limited to residential and commercial treatments, but there’s much more to this model. Pest control services are used by government agencies, railroads, public utilities, and others.

In addition to conventional pest control, Pestmaster franchise owners offer vegetation control and vegetation management services. We help clients around the country treat and control excess weeds, shrubs, trees, and other unwanted vegetation around walkways, railroads, building perimeters, fence lines, and more. In doing so, Pestmaster owners are able to target new clientele and expand their visibility via complementary marketing.

Pestmaster’s multi-service model increases your service capacity beyond the competition, which means more opportunities to help those in need and a bigger return on your investment.

High Job Satisfaction Creates Profitable Positive Feedback Loops

A recent study published by the journal of Economic Research found a clear link between job satisfaction and organizational performance. The study included a sample of 40 large and medium-sized companies, with 5806 participants surveyed. Researchers concluded that the link between job satisfaction and performance worked in both directions, so that an increase in one boosted the other (Bakotić, 2016). That only makes sense: when you’re do something you love, you perform better, and we tend to like the things we’re good at.

Pestmaster franchise owners can vouch for that. One of the major benefits of owning a pest control business is that the work is immensely rewarding. Every day, you get to be somebody’s hero, ridding their home or business of dirty, dangerous, and destructive pests. And because our integrated pest management (IPM) system is informed by an enviro-mentality, using plant-based materials and eco-friendly habitat modification practices, you can go home every night feeling good about having made the world a little greener. IPM also strives to remove pests without harming them–you can learn more about our animal trapping techniques here.

The Pestmaster franchise model is geared to maximize owner satisfaction. That’s why we invest so much in top-tier training and responsive support, and why we worked so hard to build and maintain a positive franchise culture.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out these franchise testimonials telling all about what makes the Pestmaster model so satisfying.

When you like your work, working hard feels effortless, so your business performs better. And then the positive feedback loop starts–you’re even happier, you perform even better, and your return on investment (ROI) swells.

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.
