3 Things You Need To Know Before Opening A Pest Control Business
Today’s post addresses 3 common misconceptions about operating a pest control business. Read on to learn the truth about the costs, work, and licensing involved in starting your own pest control company.
Operating A Pest Control Business Is Cheaper Than You Think
This is an important point for prospective pest control business owners. Don’t be had by unscrupulous franchisors–starting and operating a pest control business does not cost an arm-and-a-leg.
Consider this: the Pestmaster franchise opportunity requires a total initial investment of only $30,000 to $85,000. And our business model doesn’t cut any corners–in fact, our training program and support services are some of the finest in the industry.
So how can we afford to offer such a great opportunity, with comprehensive support services and plenty of other valuable intangible assets (GSA contract access and equity model included), for such a low start-up amount?
Because we’re more interested in building businesses than ripping owners off! We know how few “hard assets” (i.e. equipment) are actually needed to start a pest control business. You can run a very profitable company out of your home, using your existing vehicle, with minimal equipment, no staff, and no inventory. Our goal is to get your business started ASAP, without draining your savings, so you can break even and start generating big returns on your investment sooner.
If the company you’re currently researching charges significantly more than this, beware.
Operating A Pest Control Business Isn’t One-dimensional Work
Think operating a pest control business is all about setting traps and spraying for bugs? Think again!
The Pestmaster franchise offers a comprehensive set of services for residential, commercial, and federal clients, which includes:
- Conventional pest and wildlife control, which includes treatments for bed bugs, mosquitos, birds, termites, spiders, ants, and more
- Vegetation management, which includes bare ground vegetation control, noxious and invasive weed control, landscape weed control, and more
- Health-related vector control services that guard clients against the threat of dangerous illnesses, including hantavirus, West Nile virus, histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and salmonella typhimurium
Though most owners choose to use all available services to maximize potential revenue streams, you always have the option to focus on those that you find most enjoyable (or profitable!).
You Can Purchase A Pest Control Business Without A License
If you’re holding off on purchasing a pest control business until you get your license, you’re just wasting time. Pestmaster offers an extensive training program designed to get you up and running in 3 to 6 weeks. We can connect you with a qualified licensee to work under until you secure your own license so that you can start generating a return on your investment right away and earn while you learn!
