Starting Your Own Pest Control Company Mid-Pandemic: What You Need To Know
Starting your own pest control company mid-pandemic sounds scary, but ours is a resilient, essential industry with spiking service demand. With Pestmaster, it is easier than you think!
Starting Your Own Pest Control Company Mid-Pandemic Makes Sense
To the uninformed, the idea of starting your own pest control company mid-pandemic will sound like a classic case of bad timing.
Sure, the pest control industry is historically resilient and profitable—Entrepreneur says owners “can easily generate profits in excess of $75,000 per year,” and the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.04% annually to reach USD 27.5 billion by 2025—but surely the pandemic will change that?
After all, the United Nations estimates that the coronavirus pandemic will cost the global economy at least $1 trillion during 2020 alone—how could the pest control industry not take a hit?
In fact, it’s a great time to start your business. The pest control industry is one of the few to remain profitable throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As essential service providers forming part of America’s “critical infrastructure,” our franchise owners were never sidelined by mandated business closures. Shelter-in-place orders drive up demand for our essential services, as do increasing efforts to protect food production facilities and hospitals. Not to mention there are many companies and facilities that need disinfecting services due to COVID-19, and at Pestmaster, they can provide that. The National Pest Management Association also reports that tick-borne diseases may be on the rise as Americans spend more time outdoors, which presents another opportunity for service providers.
“The professional pest control industry has always played an essential role in the protection of public health, food and property for homes and businesses nationwide,” writes the National Pest Management Association. “And in today’s uncertain times during the world’s important battle against COVID-19, the industry continues its role as a vital protector of human health and safety.”
Pestmaster’ Cost-control Strategies More Important Than Ever
Compared to the economy, the pest control is largely unaffected by the pandemic, but cost-control strategies are still important as we enter uncertain times. That is especially true for dual-income households where non-pest control revenues may be compromised.
As such, our cost-effective start-up is even more valuable than ever. For a fraction of the cost of a single down payment for a fast food franchise, an industry hit hard by the pandemic, you can open your doors for business and start selling in a resilient, valuable market with exceptionally high demand for service.
Most initial investments range between $30,000 and $85,000, and our model implements ongoing cost control strategies. For instance:
- Pestmaster owners get exclusive equipment and supply discounts
- Pestmaster owners do not need to hire any salaried employees
- Pestmaster owners can operate entirely from home
- Discounts for veterans and existing pest control owners are available
