Is Pest Control A Good Business?

Is pest control a good business? In a word, yes!

Today’s post highlights a few factors that make pest control businesses equally perfect for first-time start-ups and late-career pivots. Read on or call 800-525-8866 to speak directly with a Pestmaster representative.

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.

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.

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

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

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

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

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

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster 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. 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.
