Industry Smart

Ever heard of a shortage of mosquitos and ticks? Us either!

Season after season, they continue to multiply due to rising global temperatures, urbanization, and international travel in turn increasing the demand for mosquito and tick control.

Approximate season and activity

What’s a bug bite or two? Unfortunately, over the past 10 years, mosquito and tick borne diseases have seen a rapid incline.

One bite from a mosquito or tick and you could looking at some serious illnesses which include Zika, West Nile, Yellow Fever, Malaria, Encephalitis, Lyme Disease, and more. As health professionals continue to educate the public about these risks, homes across North America are viewing mosquito and tick control as a seasonal requirement.

As these insects increase, the market grows with it.

The U.S. pest control market is estimated to reach $10 billion in service revenue in 2020. The industry generated an approximate $7.82 billion in total service revenue in 2015, a 4.7 percent increase from 2014.

It's been a great decision to invest in a company that is both growing and protecting my local communities.

Work Smart

Here’s why owning a FlyFoe is a great business to own

With a FlyFoe Franchise you’ll work hard for the length of your season (on average 6-8 months) and then be able to relax and recharge your batteries for the remainder of the year. This down time gives you the ability to maintain the work-life balance you desire while having the time you need to work on your business.

Demand, Demand, Demand = Recurring Revenue

Your service will allow people to enjoy their homes without the risk or annoyance of pesky bugs. Most of your customers will have their homes sprayed every month for the duration of the mosquito and tick season which provides a very steady revenue stream.

No Retail Inventory or Perishables

You never have to deal with stocking retail inventory or keeping food from going bad. Not only do you have less overhead, you'll have less worry and less work.

Low Competitive Risk

Unlike a retail or food business, a competitor opening next door won’t affect your business. You go to your customers and that personal relationship inspires trust.

Barriers of Entry

Due to licensing and certifications not just anyone can start a mosquito & tick control service. You'll have the backing of state and national certifications that will help you fly above and beyond.
