May 3, 2019

The pest control industry owes much of its recent growth and expansion to the bed bug market, which is an increasingly important economic driver for PMPs throughout North America. According to market data from Specialty Consultants, bed bug service revenues totaled $644.7 million in 2017, and six of 10 survey respondents named bed bugs as the pest needing a better solution to control. In addition, there were an estimated 1,046,440 bed bug jobs completed in 2017 (source: Specialty Consultants press release).
If you’re considering entering this lucrative field, or would simply like to learn more about the most effective bed bug treatment techniques in both residential and commercial accounts, you’ll want to attend the PCT Virtual Bed Bug Conference scheduled for Wednesday, May 22.
