Should You Outsource Your Pest Control Program?

Consulting With An Orkin Pro About Pest Management

Given the specialized knowledge Integrated Pest Management (IPM) requires and the potential risks for any pest-related downfalls, many businesses outsource their pest control programs.

While in-house pest control programs may appear to be more cost-effective on the surface, they often cost more than you think — particularly for industries that undergo strict third-party audits. So, before making any decisions about how to handle your pest control, it’s important to calculate the costs associated with every part of the process that could rack up extra expenses.

If you’re wondering if pest control outsourcing is right for your business, take our nine-question quiz to assess your needs and find out what’s best for your situation.

You’ll answer questions like:

  • Is it hard to find the time and resources to stay on top of the latest pest control technology and government regulations?

  • Would employees benefit from outside training to help them identify potential pest problems?

The quiz also includes a worksheet you can fill out to help determine if you’re getting the most value out of your current program.

Once you determine if outsourcing is a fit for you, finding the right pest control provider for your needs will be the next important step.
