The Future of Pest Control

Future of Pest Control

Pest control companies are always finding new and innovative ways to eliminate and protect people against insects, rodents, and other pests. Whether it’s developing safer, greener, and more effective pesticides to incorporating the latest technology into their services, the pest control industry is constantly developing new ways to stay one step ahead of pests. As advancements continue to be made in the science and technology behind effective pest management, here’s what things look like for the future of pest control.

Groundbreaking Technologies

We in the industry are always looking for new ways to incorporate the latest technology that increase effectiveness of our services and better serve the customer. Recent groundbreaking advancements in the way pests are controlled can help us target specific pests, reduce the risk of harming non targeted creatures, and all while minimizing our environmental impact. Here’s some of the latest innovations to keep an eye out for that are sure to have a big impact on the future of pest management.

Natural Pest Control with CO2

Traditional pest management has relied on eliminating pests by spraying toxic chemicals, but a safer alternative might soon replace it. In 2016 the EPA approved the use of CO2 in fumigation, which eliminates pests humanely and without the risk of potential soil or air contamination. The use of this safe, natural alternative demonstrates a major breakthrough in developing eco-friendly approaches to pest and rodent control.

Using Science to Target Specific Pests

While it may sound like something straight out of a science fiction novel, scientists have developed a new approach to managing certain insects. By replicating an insects hormones, insect growth regulators disrupt an insect’s growth cycle, preventing them from reaching maturity and reproducing. This allows exterminators to focus on specific threats and eliminate the threat of infestations.

But using hormones isn’t the only way science is developing new ways to fight pests. Scientists have found that by eliminating a gene in insects that helps them repel water and avoid sticking to surfaces, it can shorten their lifespan and make them more susceptible to traps and other preventative measures. While the technology is still being researched, it offers new opportunities for safe and more effective pest control.

Using the Latest Technology

Pest control specialists are finding new ways to incorporate the latest technology to keep you free of rodents. As infrared cameras have become less expensive and more widely available, many pest management companies are using them to track the movement of rodents. By analyzing their behavior and determining patterns, we can develop customized solutions that not only eliminate the threat but prevent long term infestations.

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

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.
