Market for Pest Services


A Market That's on the Rise


According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment growth in the pest control industry is expected to be faster than the average – forecasted to rise by 15 percent between 2008 and 2018 (1).

  • As environmental and health concerns increase, more people are expected to hire professionals, rather than attempt pest control work themselves. Growth in the population will also generate new need for pest control in residential, commercial, and government buildings.(2)
  • Industry studies show that the increasingly common infestation of pests will continue to harm businesses and consumers, but industry operators will benefit. Additionally, the gradually recovering housing market will create a need for pretreatment insect control services and regular inspections.(3)
