Go Green, Make Green: Starting an Organic Pest Control Franchise

Go Green, Make Green: Starting an Organic Pest Control Franchise

Today’s post explains how Pestmaster’s organic pest control franchise model makes it easy to “go green” and capitalize on the booming demand for eco-friendly services in 2019.

Modern Consumers Demand Pest Management With Environmentality

Nobody can argue that the demand for organic pest control franchises is increasing, but did you know that eco-friendly practices are quickly becoming a bare minimum in the eyes of consumers?

It’s true!

If your brand isn’t helping people improve their environmental footprint, you’re in danger of disappointing 88% of consumers, according to a 2018 survey conducted by Futerra. These findings echo those from Nielson’s Conference Board Global Consumer Confidence Survey, which suggest that a whopping 81% of global respondents feel strongly that companies should help improve the environment.

Put simply, if you’re not running an organic pest control franchise–or at least offering a range of organic pest control services–you’re losing sales.

Don’t worry: for the past 35 years, we’ve been committed to just that. Today, we are proud to offer pest management with environmentality.

At Pestmaster, We Know Pesticides Aren’t Always The Answer

In 2019, non-organic pest control franchises that default to mass chemical spraying for every pest problem they encounter turn away more customers than they attract.

At Pestmaster, we take an environmental approach to pest control that respects all flora and fauna. We aim to address the client’s specific pest problems in a way that promotes the health of the local ecosystem and never puts vulnerable species at risk.

Put simply, that means we handle pest issues without relying on pesticide products.

For example, an ant infestation in the home may be caused by any number of things–an aphid infestation in the trees, poor landscape choices, abundant food sources–many of which can be addressed without spraying a single pesticide particle.

Bed bugs are another great example. Our typical treatment includes heat and cold treatments (including steam and freezing), vacuuming, traps, education, and detection by our certified bed bug dogs (at participating locations).

We offer a range of Vegetation Management services that act as alternatives to pesticide use. Some examples include:

  • Eliminating undesirable vegetation that may serve as a food source for pests
  • Help maintaining the grounds of commercial, residential, and government properties
  • Promoting the health and vitality of desirable plant species (especially those that naturally deter pests)
  • Preventing rodent infestations and harboarages

Vegetation management is a big part of our integrated pest management (IPM) strategy, which you can read more about on our Commercial Integrated Pest Management page.

We Believe Green Products Matter

For more than 35 years, we’ve been hunting down the most effective and environmentally friendly products available in order to fulfill our commitment as an organic pest control franchise.

Today, we offer a wide range of Green products, including EPA approved reduced-risk pesticides and plant-based materials. In doing so, we keep the planet a little greener, and also reduce the risk for clients and their pets.

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.

In today’s pest control business environment, we all need some sort of competitive edge and Pestmaster has definitely given us the edge we needed to set us apart from the competition.

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

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster® Services of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster Services 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.

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 Services. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster® Services 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 Services. 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.

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”

Justin Kendall | Pestmaster® Services of Virginia Beach, Virginia

I would like to take a minute and thank you all for the incredible hospitality you all showed me.  You all contributed to a successful experience for me and I hope I can make you all proud by building a successful business in the mountains of PA and the suburbs of NJ.  Thank you again, this trip was a huge success and it would have not been possible without each and every one of you.

Tony Cuiffo | Pestmaster® Services of New Jersey & Pennsylvania

When we met with the franchisor, Jeff Van Diepen, we saw how involved he was with the franchises while also running some of the operations himself. Jeff was very in tune with how to run a successful franchise and was more than willing to put the time in to show that to the franchisees. I just can’t say enough about how Jeff and his team go to work each and every day to be better than the day before and how they bring that to the franchisees every day.
