|An interesting window on professional
pest control activity
- A majority of professional pest control customers are homeowners (60-65%), many are property managers or rental owners, and the remainder include restaurants, schools etc.
- The service calls are about evenly split between scheduled service visits and emergency/issue-driven requests.
- Rodents (rats and mice) are the biggest single pest driver, at least for this company, but bedbugs are an increasingly important issue. A company’s ability to deal with them is a differentiator in the market.
- The professional pest control business is growing, and smaller players are definitely able to make in-roads in the market.
