US Pest Control Businesses Are Booming In 2020-2021
While the pandemic has left the fate of several industries uncertain, business is still booming for “essential” pest control companies. According to Statista Research, the United States pest control industry grew by 4.2 percent between 2015 and 2020, and it’s now on track to generate revenue of some $17.4 billion by 2023.
If you’re looking for an industry with booming demand and serious resilience, consider starting a pest control business with Pestmaster—no experience required!
Running A Pest Control Business Is Great For Physical Health
Compared to the average office job, working in pest control is undoubtedly a much healthier career choice. According to research by the Mayo Clinic, excessive sitting at desk jobs is associated with a number of health concerns, including:
- Increased blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- Excess body fat around the waist
- Abnormal cholesterol levels
- Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer
Moreover, an analysis of 13 separate studies on the effects of excessive sitting found that those who sat for more than eight hours a day with no physical activity experienced health risks similar to those posed by obesity and smoking.
Working in the pest control business keeps you clear of all of these health risks, without any of the strain of heavy labor, breaking up cross-town commutes to different job sites with healthy doses of light-to-moderate activity as you apply pesticides, set traps, and manage unruly vegetation. It’s a great balance of light activity that will send you home most days feeling energized, not exhausted.
Running A Pest Control Business Offers Ideal Work/Life Balance
In many industries, starting a new business requires huge sacrifice, most of which comes from your personal life and spare time, leaving little chance of striking a work-life balance. But not all start-ups are created equal.
Running a pest control business makes it easy to strike the perfect work/life balance. You control your hours, and you get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your essential services are always in-demand. You also don’t need to worry about time-consuming inventory tasks, since this business has minimal equipment requirements, nor do you need to deal with the trials and tribulations of staffing until you’re totally ready—in fact, many owners stick with the “one-man” model for their entire career.
If you’re looking for more control over your life and work, consider investing in Pestmaster franchise.
