Mosquitoes, ticks and fleas thrive in warm humid weather, reproducing and multiplying rapidly. They’re not only a nuisance, but also they transmit dangerous diseases. They’re at their peak in mid-summer, which creates a great business opportunity for you!
While you’re on the property performing other services, it’s a logical upsell to also offer insect control.
Understanding The Opportunity
Contractors typically charge $150 – $200 per monthly outdoor insect treatment, depending on property size.
A $139.00 bottle of Central Organic Total Insect Control will treat up to 200 average-size residential properties. That’s less than $1.00 in material cost per treatment. It takes a technician about 30 minutes to treat the average property, at a total labor cost of $25-$35.
The bottom line: a savvy contractor can net $100 or more per treatment. With even a small percentage of customers participating, a contractor can achieve a very profitable service with little investment.
Why Central’s Organic Total Insect Control?
Using Central’s Organic Total Insect Control, you get Total Control of annoying pests with each application. It has an all-organic formula which will not harm beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, and earthworms, but will eliminate ticks, mosquitoes and other insects.
