Pest control services are a necessity; something every property owner must deal with directly or delegate. If left untended to, properties can become homes to unwanted friends. Unwanted critters are dirty and can eventually result in infestation. For those who can’t stand working in a cubicle, running a pest control service can be an enjoyable and lucrative way to make a living. The benefits of being a pest control or critter control business owner include being able to set your own hours and to work with repeat clients on a contractual basis. As long as the job standard is high, the work tends to continue. The business of pest control is built through marketing, reputation and referrals. Whether one decides to become a solo practitioner, or a centralized pest control service provider employing multiple pest control or extermination crews, the pest control industry is a field of work that will always be in demand.

Operating a pest control business involves attention to detail, time management, and the ability to successfully market. Operations require pesticides and spray canisters, traps, enclosures, portable lighting and proper attire. Some pest control businesses employ service dogs to sniff out any unwanted visitors and show them the way out. Deciding on a niche is important. Some pest control services specialize in bug infestation only while others deal with critters like raccoons, bats and squirrels. If staffing is necessary, a pest control business must carefully vet employees for fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Pest control services typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) like FieldPulse. These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with clients and run accounting, billing, invoicing and pest control payment.
