It's really a up and down business and it has always been SUPER saturated. If you wanna make a k!lling look into getting involved with bed bugs. People gotta pay like 1k and up to get rid of those things. I can only imagine how much the company has to pay for the products and training (probably not much). If you can get certified in that area along with good advertising #### could be BIG.

I've done bed bugs before, did an apartment complex with a friend, none of us are certified though. did it with thermal heat radiation and got great results. then I looked into it a bit more and saw usually prices are 300 bucks for each room with that same technique. how can i get certified? I need a career badly and this is what I've been applying for this past month. got 1 call from a place that starts at 12 an hour as a trainee (pest control applicator) and after a few months once i get certified I'll be making 2700/month + commission and lots of benefits. #### is over 30 miles away though and they're gonna call me back for an interview sometime soon.

I have clients have clients in that business and possibly 2 more on the way.

The business is hell to get into because its government regulated. Thats what keeps me out as I'm not interested in licensed businesses. You can make a lot of money being independent but the headache are large and its time consuming.

All my pest clients and the two who are interested all want the same thing. A set and forget business model because they hate the marketing, sales, and customer service part.

There are three styles:

Mormon (the religion)- which you want to stay away from.

Traditional - Which is what you normally see

Mosquito - This is a season business but good profit margin.

If you think you can get away with it you can do the service on the low by buying products here:
