Rodent control is one of the pest control industry’s most dynamic and profitable vertical market segments. Even in the midst of a pandemic, rodent control and public health continues to generate headlines, with rodent activity increasing in many urban areas as a result of the traditional food sources for these pests being disrupted by restaurant closures and stay-at-home orders.

With the industry’s increased emphasis on rodent control, it should come as no surprise that a significant amount of innovation is occurring in the marketplace, including new and improved rodenticide formulations; the introduction of IoT-based rodent monitoring systems; and the latest advancements in trapping technology. If you are thinking about expanding your rodent control service offerings or learning more about new opportunities in this dynamic marketplace, you won’t want to miss PCT’s Virtual Rodent Conference featuring an impressive speaker faculty of leading rodent experts on Wednesday, December 2.
