Published by M. Garside, Jul 16, 2019
Pest control is an important industry for health and safety, as well as the comfort of the people and industries affected by pests of one form or another. Worldwide, the pest control industry is split into several different segments, each based on a different approach to managing various types of pests. Common pests that require pest control management are bedbugs, cockroaches, termites, and others depending on the world region. From insect repellent worn on the body to insecticides sprayed on crops, from exterminators treating residential and commercial locations to the tent fumigation of entire buildings, the pest control industry is diverse and large.

The United States pest control industry has more than 27,000 different businesses operating, and is projected to generate revenue of some 17.4 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. Between 2013 and 2018, the U.S. pest control industry grew by 2.8 percent. The four leading U.S. pest control service companies are Orkin, Terminix, Ecolab, and Rentokil.

With increasing demand for bedbug, ant, termite, and mosquito control services in the U.S., the U.S. pest control market continues to grow. As of 2015, some 18 percent of houses in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania had issues with rat infestations, while some 38 percent of houses in Houston, Texas had problems with cockroaches, among many other U.S. cities with similar problems with pests. A city's climate greatly influences how vulnerable it is to pest infestations. Cities in warmer regions face more cases of infestations from insects, as the warm climate allows them to live longer than they would in colder climates.
