What makes investing in a pest control franchise business profitable for you

Well, figures don’t lie. The pest control industry market is expected to grow globally at a CAGR of about 11% over the next 5 years. In the UK, it has seen growth at a rate of 3.1% per year between 2015 and 2020. And what about this? The pest control industry’s market size has increased more rapidly than the UK economy overall!


On a general note, insects, rodents and birds have been pestering humans since our existence. In that sense, pest control does not get affected so much by economic factors, such as slowdowns, stagnation or an outright recession. One’s got bugs at home. They must go. A client’s got rats in their restaurant. They call Fantastic Pest Control. And more specifically, in this modern age, food-related waste production is on the increase, which amplifies the risk of pests. This opens up the demand for pest control services and thus, it expands the opportunity for industry growth.

So, starting a profitable pest control business with us can easily get you a share of the pie.

What pest control services you can specialise in

With us, you can specialise in one or a number of pest control solutions and gradually build your service portfolio by improving your skills and acquiring additional certification if necessary. Note that our clients may prefer to take advantage of our pest management services in a discreet manner. This means that it’s not always a good idea to turn up in a branded vehicle to complete the job.

  • Rodent control

    The rodent control service entails the removal of rats, mice and squirrels from residential and commercial properties, as well as from public service facilities. To provide the service, you need certification, insurance, equipment and expertise.

  • Insect control

    We offer various flying and crawling insect control services, including termite, cockroach, wasp, moth, bed bug management, removal and prevention solutions, to list just a few. Again, depending on your qualifications, you’ll be able to choose what to provide your clients with and with time, grow your range of pest control services if you wish.

  • Bird control

    We use humane bird-deterrent devices and methods, which effectively repel pigeons and seagulls, as these birds are generally the most common vermin, people encounter problems with. You’ll also be expected to provide the client with qualified bird prevention advice, upon request.

  • Other pest control services

    Apart from “standard” rodent, insect and bird control services, both commercial and domestic clients often book fogging and heat treatment, as well as our dead animal removal service. We should also note here that when it comes to serving business proprietors, they generally expect a comprehensive pest management plan that is backed by the expertise of pest technicians with the right certification, which is appropriate for the industry sector, the client operates in.
