How to Spot Quality Pest Companies for Sale
Researching pest companies for sale?
Look for the following 3 quality indicators to make sure you’ve got a good offer in front of you!
A Growing Arsenal Of Eco-friendly Pest Control Solutions
In 2015, a Nielson study surveyed 30,000 consumers from 60 countries to assess how different brands’ “commitment to sustainability” affected their sales performance. Put simply, they were testing whether eco-friendly companies had an edge over less sustainable brands.
The answer is yes.
Overwhelmingly, survey respondents indicated that they would be more willing to pay more for sustainable goods and services, such as eco-friendly pest control solutions. In total, 73% of Millennials and 66% of global consumers said they would do so, up from only around 50% in 2014. This trend has only intensified in recent years, as environmentalism continues to become one of the most important issues of the 21st century.
The majority of respondents also indicated that sustainability was one of the top deciding factors when making a purchase decision. That means even less well-known brands could secure sales by offering eco-friendly products.
Knowing this, it’s critical that you only consider pest companies for sale if they offer some form of eco-friendly products or services, like Pestmaster Services’ Environmental Pest Management solutions.
We have been dedicated to developing sustainable solutions for more than 40 years. It’s just one of the many reasons we’ve been consistently ranked as one of the top-100 pest control brands by PCT.
If the company you’re researching is limited to caustic pesticides, cross them off your list.
A Strong Digital Identity
In the Digital Age, it’s imperative that you have a strong online presence. According to Web Credibility Research from Stanford, as much as 75% of a company’s credibility in the eyes of modern consumers is based on their digital identity and website design.
Only research pest companies for sale that have quality online assets. That includes a professional website full of high-quality content, active and engaging social media accounts (like Twitter and Facebook), and a number of strong reviews from happy customers on third-party sites. Take a look at our web presence to get an idea of what you ought to be looking for.

Avoid pest companies for sale that charge more than this. After all, Pestmaster Services is a nationally recognized brand and GSA Contract Holder that is consistently ranked in the top-100 by PCT, so you’d be hard-pressed to find a more qualified system. Why pay more for less?
