Pest Control Technology (PCT) Research Highlights Marketwide Opportunities

New research by the Pest Control Technology shows growth in demand for all sorts of pest control services, including:

  • Bed bugs. Bed bug control remains great for the bottom line, according to the 2019 State of the Bed Bug Market Report from Pest Control Technologies. Market analyses showed that bed bug treatments generated about 14% of the total revenue for pest control companies last year. That’s up from 12.8% in 2016. Responding to this steady growth in demand, 82% of pest management companies now offer bed bug control services, up from 75% in 2018.
  • Wildlife control. The 2019 State of the Wildlife Control Market report indicated that wildlife control services accounted for about 11% of all pest control company revenue in 2019, well up from the previous year, with raccoon and squirrel treatments being the most popular. Some companies surveyed by researchers indicated that wildlife controls accounted for as much as 30% of their revenue.

    Moreover, only 50% of all pest control companies surveyed indicated that they offered wildlife control services. That means companies providing wildlife control enjoy much less competition than those focused on other services, such as termite control, which was offered by 65% of all companies surveyed.

  • Flea control. Flea controls were up by nearly 19% last year, according to the 2019 State of the Flea Market report, as the summer months brought two of fleas’ favorite conditions across the US: heat and humidity.

    96% of surveyed pest control business owners expect higher or even revenues from flea control in 2020, and we’re among them!

  • Mosquito treatments. In 2018, 95% of pest control companies saw revenues from mosquito treatments either increase or remain steady, according to the 2019 State of the Mosquito Market report. 80% of pest control business owners further indicated that they expected mosquito services’ percentage of revenue to increase in 2019, up from 54% last year, 83% consider mosquito control “a significant growth opportunity.”

This is only the tip of the iceberg; there is an incredible amount of data supporting the continued growth of the pest control services market.

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.

Wayne Holliday & Tommy Houk | Pestmaster® Services of Lake City & Gainesville, FL

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.

Bart Van Diepen | Pestmaster® Services of Northern San Diego, CA

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.
