As more people adapt to healthier lifestyles, the Zoёcon team breaks down why it is important for your pest control company to start taking advantage of botanical pest control products now.
- Consumer demand for natural products is increasing.
Many pest management professionals believe that changing consumer attitudes have led to growth in the green pest control industry. According to the 2021 PCT State of the Naturals Market survey, 48 percent of consumers were more concerned about the environment since the beginning of the pandemic, and 55 percent were more likely to purchase environmentally friendly products. With people spending more time at home due to the wave of work-from-home, consumers will continue to ask for botanical pest control products because they require no downtime and are safe around children and pets.

Pest control companies are adding more green products to their service offerings. In fact, 33 percent of PMPs said their companies purchased more green products in the past year, and 22 percent said they made more time to teach employees about green products and services, according to the 2021 PCT State of the Naturals Market survey. The use of botanical pest control products can give your pest control business a competitive edge against the competition.
