The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) adopted rulemaking increasing the small business size standard for the pest control service industry from $7 million to $10 million. Small business size standards determine eligibility for small business assistance and for federal contracts set aside for small business.
The move is part of a larger rulemaking initiative increasing the small business size standards for 37 industries in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 56, Administrative and Support, Waste Management and Remediation Services. (The NAICS number for Exterminating and Pest Control Services industry is 561710.) The revised size standards will be effective January 7, 2013.
