The pest control industry owes much of its recent growth and expansion to the bed bug market, which is an increasingly important economic driver for PMPs throughout North America. In fact, 82% of pest control companies now offer bed bug services, according to the 2019 PCT State of the Bed Bug Market report, sponsored by Zoecon. And 61% of PCT’s readers said bed bug services have become a more significant part of their business in the past five years.
Despite its impressive growth, however, the market is changing. PMPs are constantly testing new treatment protocols and clients are struggling with the economic burden of repeat treatments as bed bugs are re-introduced to their accounts, creating additional challenges for the industry.
If you’re currently involved in the bed bug market or are thinking about adding this service to your company’s offerings, you won’t want to miss PCT’s Virtual Bed Bug Conference, featuring high-profile speakers from business and academia.
