Starting Your Own Pest Control Company Is Easy With Pestmaster Services

Starting Your Own Pest Control Company Is Easy With Pestmaster Services

Today’s post explains how Pestmaster Services simplifies two of the hardest parts of starting a pest control company: identifying a target market and building a winning business plan.

Challenge #1: Finding A Fertile Market

Like the farmer who seeks fertile soil to grow their crops, you need a fertile market to grow your business. If you’re planning on starting your own pest control company, that means identifying local markets with sufficient demand for pest control services. Lucky for you, they’re everywhere!

In fact, most pest control services are enjoying demand spikes throughout the US. For example:

  • Post-construction termite treatments on the rise. Revenues earned from controlling termites this past year exceeded total pest control revenues generated in 2005, according to new research by Pest Control Technology.
  • The bed bugs are biting. Almost all (99.6%) pest professionals report providing treatment for bed bugs in the past year. That number – which has been consistent for the past few years – is significantly higher than 15 years ago, when only 25% of pest professionals reported treating for bed bugs. Nationwide, service revenue derived from controlling bed bugs increased by 6.6 percent from the prior year, bringing total revenue earned to $611.2 million.
  • Demand for mosquito control outpaces other segments. In 2016, mosquito treatments were among the fastest-growing pest segment. Last year service revenue spiked by 12.6%, primarily from an increase in demand for residential barrier treatments.

And that’s only the beginning. You can read our full industry breakdown on the Pestmaster Services Facts and Figures page.

Whether you choose to focus on one of these services or target the whole is up to you. But make no mistake about it: the pest control industry is booming, and finding a fertile market is easy in 2020. And if you choose to partner with Pestmaster Services, this step is as simple as browsing available markets on our website.

Challenge #2: Finding (Or Creating) A Winning Business Model

With the pest control market booming, lots of people are starting their own pest control company. If you want to stand out from the competition, win sales, and build an enduring brand, you’ll need to develop an effective business model.

That means identifying your specific audience, establishing business processes, recording all key resources, developing a value proposition and locating key partners. All that needs to be in place before you start having fun thinking up names or designing a logo.

But we’re not here to tell you how to create a winning business model–we’re offering you one! Rather than spending years developing the skills needed to build a competitive business model, why not adopt the proven system and processes our franchise owners have used to build successful companies since 1979? It’s never failed and never stopped evolving. You can learn more about our business model on the Pestmaster Services Franchise website.

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.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster® Services 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 Services. 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.

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”

Justin Kendall | Pestmaster® Services of Virginia Beach, Virginia

I would like to take a minute and thank you all for the incredible hospitality you all showed me.  You all contributed to a successful experience for me and I hope I can make you all proud by building a successful business in the mountains of PA and the suburbs of NJ.  Thank you again, this trip was a huge success and it would have not been possible without each and every one of you.

Tony Cuiffo | Pestmaster® Services of New Jersey & Pennsylvania

When we met with the franchisor, Jeff Van Diepen, we saw how involved he was with the franchises while also running some of the operations himself. Jeff was very in tune with how to run a successful franchise and was more than willing to put the time in to show that to the franchisees. I just can’t say enough about how Jeff and his team go to work each and every day to be better than the day before and how they bring that to the franchisees every day.
