InCide® Pest Control Insulation Boosts Year-Round Profits
Each year, when springtime rolls around, flowers begin to bloom, birds start chirping and….the bugs come out of hiding. While most of us could do without the bugs, for pest management professionals this is a much anticipated occurrence. The phone starts ringing, and the trucks are rolling out for a great pest control season. Unfortunately, this spike in business comes to an end when cooler weather arrives, diminishing the insect population.
A common concern for pest management professionals is how to keep busy during the winter months, and many companies have turned to installing InCide® Pest Control Insulation.
InCide® Pest Control Insulation combines the energy-saving features of cellulose insulation with permanent pest protection. This is a benefit that is not available in any insulation product available at the big box stores. As an EPA-registered pest control product, only licensed pest control operators may install InCide®.
So, how does InCide® help boost profits? Since 80% of older homes are under-insulated, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly any homeowner is a potential customer. Pest management professionals already have existing client lists full of homeowners, so that is a great place to start. Attic inspections can be performed during routine visits, and our energy savings calculator can be used to illustrate how quickly this great service pays for itself in the form of lower utility bills. Add the fact that InCide® kills most household insects on contact and never loses its pest-fighting power, and it’s a win-win!
The fall and winter months are a great time to promote InCide® Pest Control Insulation, as homeowners cringe when they get that first high heating bill. However, profit-boosting opportunities are not limited to these months. InCide® Pest Control Insulation is just as effective at keeping homes cool in the summertime, reducing air-conditioning costs.
Give us a call, and we’ll show you just how InCide® Pest Control Insulation can help strengthen your business all year.
