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?
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.
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.
