More than 550 owners and senior managers of pest management companies participated in the 2015 PCT-NPMA Compensation and Benefits Survey.
Most respondents (22 percent) had gross revenue of $1 million to $4.9 million last year, followed closely by revenue of less than $100,000 (21 percent) and $100,000 to $250,000 (19 percent). Income was split among residential (60 percent), commercial (35 percent) and other (5 percent) accounts.
According to the survey, pest management companies were in business an average of 23 years and operate in the Southeast (24 percent), Great Lakes and Plains region (19 percent), Southwest (16 percent), Mid-Atlantic (15 percent), Far West (13 percent), New England (5 percent), Rocky Mountain region (3 percent), Canada (8 percent) and outside the U.S. and Canada (1 percent).
More than 80 percent said they employ 1 to 19 employees. Nearly three-fourths of companies are members of NPMA.
