Starting your own business is a life-changing decision, and there are a number of factors to consider before you take that step. If you are looking to start a franchise, you’ll have to decide which industry you’d like to enter. With so many choices available, why should you choose the mosquito industry?
For starters, mosquito control is a fast-growing industry. As the weather gets warmer and the warm weather last longer, more people are experiencing the nuisance that is a backyard full of mosquitoes. There’s also growing concern about the public health risk from mosquito-borne diseases. In the United States, the most common mosquito-borne disease is West Nile virus. There is no vaccine for WNV, and although only 1 in 5 people experience symptoms, 1 in 150 people will develop severe complications that may lead to death. Mosquitoes can make your pets sick, too – dogs can contract heartworms from them, and horses are susceptible to WNV and mosquito-borne encephalitis viruses.
The revenue from mosquito control treatments recur every year in the summertime, and as mosquito season extends further into fall, there is a wider window of opportunity to make a profit. Between the increasing awareness of the health risks posed by mosquito bites and decreasing tolerance for the annoyance mosquitoes cause, more consumers are seeking mosquito control treatments each year.
