CAPE CORAL, Fla. - The recently-launched PestBizXchange.com is an easier way for pest control professionals to search for or offer needed equipment and network with each other to buy and sell online, the company said.

The new project is spearheaded by Jennifer Maschmidt, who watched her father Gary run a successful business for over 25 years. As Gary’s Quality Pest Control expanded, Gary’s need for different types of equipment changed. Gary stated, “As I grew, I always accumulated parts and equipment that I no longer needed, but placing ads in trade journals seemed too expensive and I wasn’t sure I would reach the right people.”

Jennifer has collaborated with her father to create a new membership-based online marketplace for pest control industry professionals called PestBizXchange.com.  “I’m excited about this opportunity to give an outlet for members to find exactly what they are looking for at a fraction of the original cost. In this economy that’s just good business," Jennifer said.
 
PestBizXchange members can post photos and videos of their equipment and then deal directly with each other for buying and selling. By networking and connecting through this website with other pest control professionals, members can gain insight from other members on what works and what doesn’t. 
 
Membership is $99 per year. Pest Control Professionals can sign up at PestBizXchange.com.
