Myrtle Beach, S.C. — Joe Davis was laid off about three years ago from a job selling time shares, and with bleak job prospects he started his own pest control business.

"At the time when we started it, there was no job opportunity," he said. "There was no job that could pay our rent, so we had to make one."

He took some money he had saved and invested it in the materials he needed and on advertising his new business, AAA Pest Control, which works on residential and commercial properties and specializes in organic pest control.

He opened a pest control business because it would be a business that had a future even in a struggling economy, Davis said.

"Luckily with our business it doesn't require a storefront," he said. "If we had to do a storefront it might not have been as realistic because of all the capital required."
