What to Know About the Pest Control Industry
There’s no greater menace than pests. Whether it’s out in your yard or in your home, mosquitoes, spiders and other bugs can be irritating and bothersome. But they’re not the only threat you face. Rodents, birds and other disease carriers can transmit viruses and bacteria, while algae and weeds can threaten all the hard work you’ve put into maintaining your yard. But pest control services help keep you and your family safe from these threats. Here’s what you need to know about the pest control industry.
Building a Barrier Against Invasive Pests
Pest control services work hard to keep you and your family safe from invasive pests, whether they’re insects, rodents or birds. These unwanted and irritating intruders can bring with them harmful viruses and diseases like West Nile, Lyme disease, hantavirus and salmonella. To eliminate any threats these insects and animals may pose, regular pest control services can help keep your home and yard safe from harm.
To create a barrier to protect you from disease carrying pests, highly skilled service technicians inspect your home and yard to identify any areas where pests can get settled. Using environmentally friendly sprays, technicians eliminate any existing threats as well as any areas where pests can flourish. Used in combination with bait, traps, and preventative measures, technicians create a barrier of protection that with regularly scheduled servicing, help keep your home and yard pest free year-round.
A Growing Industry Always in Demand
Outdoor and invasive pests are always a threat, which means pest control services are always in demand. In 2016, the total service revenue generated by the professional pest control industry totaled nearly $8.175 billion, up 4.6% from the year before. From eliminating threats posed by bed bugs and termites to mosquito barrier sprays, pest control services are in demand year-round. As a result of this demand, there’s an estimated 19,820 pest control firms in the nation.
