Are Pest Control Franchises In Michigan Profitable?
November 15, 2020
There are a lot of pest control companies in Michigan. Most of them are small business startups. But more and more franchises are appearing across the state because it is a whole lot easier to grow a franchise than it is to start from scratch. It is also a lot easier to turn a profit with a franchise. But what about the pest control industry as a whole? How much money can you really make as a pest control professional? Our answer? The sky is the limit. Here's why.
People Will Always Need Pest Control
If you're looking to get into a business that is always in demand, there is no better choice than the pest control industry. Pests have been around forever and they're going to be around forever. Pests are simply bugs and wildlife that get into places they shouldn't. The goal of pest control is not to exterminate these animal species, it is to manage where they're allowed to go. There will always be a need for this service.
Demand Is High
There is a growing awareness of the dangers pests can present. This awareness is fueling the growth of the pest control industry.
Lyme disease continues to capture headlines and the cases of Lyme disease continue to grow at an alarming rate.
A recent outbreak of Zika virus had everyone glued to their television sets and computer monitors.
Stories of bed bugs being found in movie theaters, libraries, and other unexpected places continue to increase as these bugs seek to retake the United States.

The Industry Is Growing

That figure is expected to grow 5% over the next five years, according to the 2018 Rentokil Pest Control Report. This is a very profitable industry. You will only be limited by your ability to draw in customers and properly service your customers. This is where a franchise can really help you maximize your profitability.
