Pest Control Workers

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment of pest control workers will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2022. This growth will be due to increased environmental and health concerns, greater numbers of dual income households, and the relatively recent bedbug epidemic. Although steady advances in science are resulting in safer and more effective pesticides, pest control will always be needed, since most vermin breed rapidly and develop an immunity to pesticides over time. The high turnover rate among employees will also provide a certain number of job openings.
