Pest Control Among Top Outdoor Jobs

Business

Fox Business named the profession of pest management technician on a list of jobs to help "escape the office."

| April 25, 2013

Being stuck in an office all day can be a drag. Fox Business recently put together a list of "Eight Outdoor Jobs to Help You Escape the Office," and landing smack in the middle was the profession of pest control technician.

"Every area of the country has pests to contend with, whether those pests are bedbugs or roaches," Fox Business wrote. "The pest control field is one of those outdoor jobs that's projected to grow at a rate of 26 percent from 2010 to 2020, which is faster than the average occupation."

Also on the list were archeologist jobs, surveyor jobs, environmental scientists, and more. Read the full list here
