M&As and Regional Expansion: A Pervasive Strategy for Termite Control Services Market Players
The termite control services market is highly fragmented with the presence of a large number of local and regional players who hold sway in a particular state or city.
Established players in the termite control services market are in constant seek of entering into strategic partnerships or merger & acquisition activities with the regional competitors, to capitalize on their service-specific offerings, thereby expanding their customer base and global footprint alike.
- Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators recently announced its merger and acquisition of the Knockout Pest & Termite, which would strengthen its presence in Southern Alabama’s commercial & residential pest and termite control services market. The acquisition provides Arrow with eight service centers of Knockout throughout the Alabama state.
- Rollins has recently strengthened its position in Kansas and Oklahoma with the acquisition of Ponca City – a pest control service provider. This acquisition will offer Rollins with Ponca’s P.E.S.T machine – an electrostatic duster, along with procedures and protocols.
- Plunkett’s Pest Control acquired Bugeaters Pest Control and L&S Termite and Pest Control, both family-owned businesses offering quality pest management services to customers. The acquisition is a perfect fit for Plunkett’s, L&S, and Bugeaters alike, all being full-service providers of pest management services.
- Indianapolis-based Askren Termite and Pest Control recently merged with Franklin Pest Solutions. The merger will act as a boon for the latter as it will reap benefits throughout their overall network of services across Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana.
- Black Diamond, in early September 2018, announced its opening of a franchise location in eastern Kentucky’s River Cities area, thereby expanding its service reach for both commercial and residential clients in the area.
- In early August 2018, Gregory Pest Solutions acquired the Greenville-based Commander Pest Solutions, to leverage its pest control services and termite treatment technique offerings across the area.
- Rentokil Steritech recently finalized a deal of acquiring The Hitmen Termite & Pest Control, which would expand its business footprint in the Northern California Market. The acquisition further adds 120 full-time Hitmen employees to Rentokil’s staff.
Semiochemicals Gain Momentum as Efficacious IPM Strategy in Termite Control
Advancements in strategies of integrated pest management (IPM) have observed significant escalations, upheld particularly by the contribution of chemical ecology. Public demand and environmental concerns associated with the use of toxic pesticides and insecticides for the management of pests, such as termites, have led to the development of sustainable alternatives such as “semiochemicals” – a novel discovery of chemical ecology.
Semiochemicals currently seek extensive adoption in pest management as sex pheromones, thereby attracting more and more termite control service providers to inculcate the technique. Relative specificity, low toxicity, and greater potency of semiochemicals are key attributes that have proliferated their demand in termite control services, as eco-friendly alternatives to pesticides and insecticides. Currently, semiochemicals-based termite control services are offered as pheromone lures and traps for monitoring reasons, meanwhile being leveraged for the development of mating disruption techniques.
Termite Control Services Providers Entering the “Smart Era”
Termite control services providers are increasingly embracing the adoption of smart techniques, which prevent costly infestations through sustainable solutions. Constant monitoring and instant reactive steps offered by such smart techniques have become a new focus area for termite control services providers to adopt. Providers who emphasize the provision of intelligent, digital process-based termite control services, which facilitate detection of blind spots and around-the-clock surveillance, are likely to witness promising growth prospects in the foreseeable future.
IoT and artificial intelligence are also witnessed to have gradually permeated the area of termite control services, with connected devices and sensors simplifying trapping processes, along with the provision of real-time monitoring and notifications. Anticimex’s SMART digital trap is a prime example of such an IoT development in termite control services.
Additionally, advanced termite control services include the use of camera-equipped drones that offer a bird’s eye view of termite issues, emerging not only as a safer option for service providers but also optimizing the processes and cutting down manpower costs in the long run.
Continuation of Adequate Termite Control Measures Essential for Curtailing Structural Damage
Determination of potency or incidence of termite damage to residential and commercial structures is not yet accurate, however, the construction industry, in cooperation with the governments, continues to recommend adequate control measures to reduce structural risk & costs apropos of termite damage. For example, the Building Code of Australia necessitates structural components of new buildings to be safe from termite damage.
Considerable research & development activities are being taken into a broader range of efficacious alternatives to hand-spraying of insecticides and pesticides, which in turn has resulted in the development of cost-effective and innovative solutions such as pre-construction termite control and the use of smart pest control techniques.
Additionally, changes in termite preventative measures have led to collaborative efforts between local & state government authorities and building industry associations for addressing issues related to termite damage. Introduction and compliance to new standards and methods have resulted in a widening list of effective alternative options, thereby enabling real estate developers to advise clients in selecting a range of options as per their investment suitability.
Providers Emphasize on Efficient Technician Scheduling as a Key Profit Determinant
Termite control services providers are shifting their focus toward maximizing the productivity of their technicians, with labor being the most significant cost-intensive asset. These providers are putting a higher emphasis on efficient routing and scheduling of tasks for enabling technicians to complete more termite treatments per day.
Termite control services providers who invest in route scheduling software and GPS systems are likely to witness promising future prospects while boosting their technician productivity. Leading providers in the termite control services market are offering cost-effective schemes via homeowner associations and using direct canvassing & referrals for expanding their customer base.
