The pest control industry is in desperate need of women tradies. Females make some of the best technicians, in part because their eye for capturing details is exceptional.

If you look closely behind every successful pest control business, you will likely find a very motivated female pushing the business. They are quite often not recognised for their efforts, even though they are very often the key to the business success.

In an effort to shine a light on female tradies in the pest control industry, we strongly encourage women to look at purchasing a franchise. We really do seek to increase the number of female-owned businesses in the Jim’s Group.

If you would like to enquire about a franchise, simply call 131 546 and our friendly staff will take your details.

Why women tradies should consider pest control

Women tradiesIn years past, pest control was very dirty, hard work, and used some very toxic chemicals. However, these days the chemicals we use are very safe, and in fact most chemicals are based on plant extracts.

In addition, we have now developed better processes of application which reduces exposure. This means that the pest control industry as a whole is now reducing the amount of chemicals used which is a great result for the environment.

The use of technology is also changing the industry, and this is often something older male technicians have trouble with. But, women seem to embrace this technology more easily as it is something they use every day.

It is staggering how important iPads and other similar technologies, as well as social media platforms, is now becoming to the pest control industry.

Pest Control is fast becoming a good trade for females.
