Pest Control can be a profitable business… if you’re charging the right prices. And to charge the right prices, you need the right software.
This article will help you solve some of your biggest problems in your Pest Control business.
Reason 5: Get Stress-Free Chemical Tracking
In the Pest Control business, chemical tracking is probably one of your biggest concerns. This is your #1 moneymaker, so it should be one of your top priorities.
Without a proper tool to track your chemicals, things can get inefficient rather quickly:
- You undercharge/overcharge clients.
- You don’t order the right amount of product.
- It’s almost impossible to figure out how much profit you’re making.
This list is endless. You need to be using a tool for chemical tracking.
In Service Autopilot, you can keep tracking of your chemicals by adding them into your account.
The best part? Most of the numbers are calculated for you!
Chemical tracking is vital to the growth of your pest control business, so the benefits here are endless.
Reason 4: Automatically Charge Your Clients
The most exasperating thing for a business owner… is a client who doesn’t pay.
We all have them, and they’re not going away any time soon. The best way to combat this issue is by automatically charging cards.
When you already have a card on file, you can automatically bill a client.
Service Autopilot allows you to:
- Create custom forms for your clients to sign (allowing you to charge their cards after every rendered service).
- Keep cards on file.
- Schedule recurring payments.
- Send clients automated reminders when their card is declined.
There are many opportunities to utilize our software in your pest control business. Stop taking cash and start charging those cards.

- You waste precious hours every week trying to figure out the most efficient routes.
- It’s hard to keep track of everyone’s schedules, because you don’t have a convenient place for your notes and reminders.
- And forget about dispatching… You’d need an app to dispatch your teams.

You can easily view all of your scheduled services and choose the route that best fits you.
Not to mention, with our built-in notes and reminders, it’s almost impossible to forget the little things when it’s time to route or dispatch. For instance, you’ll be able to see who’s on vacation, and can schedule everyone accordingly.
