NEW YORK — Assured Environments was a co-sponsor of Earth Day at the Time Warner Center.

During Time Warner’s celebration, the center’s tenants participated in a variety of activities to support green initiatives.
Earth Day at the Time Warner Center was open to the public. All attendees who visited Assured Environments’ booth received a free sample of Cimex Rest Assured.
“Participating in Earth Day complements our green approach to pest management, and we are delighted to support this important initiative,” says Evan Rosenblum, Assured Environments’ director of marketing.
Assured Environments focuses on all areas of pest management, particularly bed bugs, rodents, bird control, chute cleaning, ants, bat removal and fly removal. For more information visit www.assuredenvironments.com.
2010 a Steady Year for the U.S. Structural Pest Control Market, SPC Reports
The industry generated an estimated $6.31 billion in total service revenue in 2010, essentially unchanged from the $6.32 billion measured in 2009, according to new research from Gary Curl.
MENDHAM, N.J. — Specialty Products Consultants (SPC) has published the 11th edition of A Strategic Analysis of the U.S. Structural Pest Control Industry. The U.S. structural pest control industry generated an estimated $6.31 billion in total service revenue in 2010, essentially unchanged from the $6.32 billion measured in 2009.
Service revenue derived from controlling bed bugs grew nearly 25 percent from the prior year, bringing the total revenue earned to nearly $320 million. Single family homes and apartments were the primary leading types of accounts pest control operators treated for bed bugs. Hotels and motels ranked as the third leading type of account with more than ten percent of the pest control operators mentioning them. Nationwide, PCOs reported an average charge for a bed bug treatment of over $500. The average charge was highest in the Northeast and lowest in the South Central region. The median charge nationwide was $400.00 for a bed bug treatment.
Nearly one-quarter of the pest control operators surveyed reported using social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) to advertise and promote their pest control business.
Total manufacturer level revenue increased nearly two percent this past year. This is the first improvement in manufacturer level revenue measured in three years.
More than 800 owners or managers of pest control companies were interviewed for this study. The market report forecasts pest control service revenue and corresponding pesticide product category sales through 2015. The impact of the commercial and residential real estate market, mosquito and wildlife management services, and pest control operators’ revenue expectations for 2011 are just a few of the topics analyzed in this year’s report.
Founded in 2000, Specialty Products Consultants, LLC, headquartered in Mendham, New Jersey, is a market research company dedicated exclusively to the professional pesticide industry.
