Hey Guys,
Just joined the forum last night, and love it.
My main business is Residential & Commercial Pest Control. I'm adding Fall leaf cleanups and snow removal (mainly residential driveways and walkways) this year.

If anyone has any pest control questions just ask.
Name of my company is Elite Pest Control

www.elitepestcontrolnj.com

Thanks
Frank

Hi Frank,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you interested in pest control initially? Do you think you may like lawn care/landscaping more?

Thank you O.C.

Steve,
I was laid off from the corporate world in 2008. In 2009 a neighbor needed help with his pest control business, and the rest is history, lol.
I opened my company April of this year. Slow going so far, but I guess that's par for the course. To make some more $ I started Fall leaf cleanups and snow removal.
Great job on the site,there is a ton of info on here.

Frank

Two words.

STINK BUGS!!!


Depending on you're location, you could do well focusing on those alone!
Best of luck with the business and with the upcoming seasons!



The only good stink bug is a
DEAD STINK BUG!

Can you market to combat the bedbug problem? I'd figure everyone must be concerned about those bugs. Maybe that could be a hot topic marketing issue that could bring in a lot more business.
