Pest Control Services

Industry Niche Description

Pest control companies that exterminate mosquitoes, rodents, termites and other insects and pests in residential and commercial end markets.

Investment Thesis

Pest control is non-discretionary service for homeowners similar to plumbing and HVAC, but also a health and safety driven concern for commercial applications such as hotels, restaurants and other facilities. It is a recession-resistant service with a revenue model that is largely driven by recurring subscription revenue, with regular treatments and inspections necessary for ongoing pest protection.

Representative Targets

Attractive target companies within this niche may have the following attributes:

  • Residential and/or commercial pest control companies.
  • Highly recurring revenue model with ongoing or regular treatments and inspections.
  • Limited technician certification requirements.
