Save the Planet and Profit: Starting a Green Pest Control Franchise

Save the Planet and Profit: Starting a Green Pest Control Franchise

Today’s post is all about how the Pestmaster pest control franchise can help you start or convert your company into a “green” money-making machine that capitalizes on the growing demand for eco-friendly practices.

Environmentalism is affecting pest control franchises

Amid a new wave of environmentalism, eco-savvy consumers are starting to understand that they no longer need to rely on the harmful pesticides of the past to solve rodent and pest problems in their home or business.

As a result, environmentally friendly Integrated Pest Management (IPM) services are popping up across the country. Instead of defaulting to chemicals, pest control franchises now train employees to investigate how and why pests infiltrate a building, then implement eco-friendly products and tactics to stop them.

“It’s a better approach to pest control for the health of the home, the environment, and the family,” said Cindy Mannes, a spokeswoman for the National Pest Management Association. And according to a recent NBC News report, saving the planet pays off!

According to a Nielsen global study, 75% of Millennials say that “sustainability is a shopping priority” in 2019. Today, this demographic has affectionately been dubbed “the Green Generation.” But they’re not the only ones who care about saving the planet. The rise in the percentage of respondents aged 15 – 20, also known as Generation Z, who are willing to pay more for products and services that come from pest control franchises who are committed to positive social and environmental impact was also strong—up from 55% in 2014 to 72% in 2015. Since then, these numbers have only grown.

In other words, if you’re not investing in greener pest control franchise practices in 2019, you’re missing out on a huge number of sales, and the ability to charge more for your services.

To some pest control franchise owners, the growing “green” movement is quite menacing. Those who have spent their entire careers doing things one way are understandably reluctant to invest in change. But consumers are growing more eco-savvy every day–the pressure to adopt IPM and “greener” practices is building.

Don’t worry–Pestmaster can help!

With more than 40 years of experience in this industry, we were on the cutting edge of IPM since it first emerged back in the 1980s. Today, we offer a number of eco-friendly IPM solutions, including:

Pest control

Termite control

Landscape pests

Bed bug inspections and control

Rodent control

Bird control

Vegetation management

Health related pest management

As a Pestmaster pest control franchise owner, you will receive extensive training in all these areas, and be privy to a number of eco-friendly products, including:

Door sweeps, which are simply vinyl strips installed on the bottoms of doors to prevent mice from wriggling through.

Natural pest controls, which use everyday ingredients like mint oil or orange peel to repel pests.

Boric acid-based products, which act as stomach poison to insects, but are “about as toxic as table salt” to humans.

No experience is needed to get started with our pest control franchise. We will teach you everything you need to know, from day-to-day eco-friendly operations, to how to market your “Green” business online to Millennials.

If you have an existing pest control franchise or business and want to join the Pestmaster, we can help you do it and save tons of money in the process.

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.

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