Building a successful business requires drive, determination and dedication and running a pest control business is no exception.

But it’s not just about pests. As well as mastering the technical skills and learning the trade, you will be expanding your commercial knowledge including sales, marketing and finance and developing relationships with customers and suppliers within your territory.

Franchising offers a proven and sustainable business model, an important consideration when up to two thirds of new businesses fail within the first three years of operation. 

The rewards are plenty and our experienced team at The Pest Company are on hand to help you all the way.

Pest Control Novice? No problem!

Many of our franchisees have made the transition from very different careers, looking to benefit from the flexibility of running their own van-based business from home and the excellent earning potential the sector brings.

You could be trained up and ready to start trading in a matter of weeks.

As well as achieving RSPH Level 2 accreditation in Pest Control in association with the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), our franchisees benefit from time spent out on the road with existing business owners, like The Pest Company Solent team below, observing their rapport with clients and handling of pests.

Getting your business off to a good start:

Our comprehensive training and support will help navigate you through those challenging early days. We also set up and run your Google advertising for the first three months of trading to generate a pipeline of quality leads to get you earning as quickly as possible.  


Call me for an informal chat. I run our franchise recruitment and am on hand to help you through the initial process.

My husband is The Pest Company’s Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex franchisee, so I can offer some personal insight on getting your pest business off the ground and how to survive those first few years.

Call me on 07727 619034 or email me.

For a more comprehensive discussion why not book on to one of our discovery days over the coming months?

Welcome to an exciting new world.
