Grow Your Business with a Pest Control Virtual Receptionist

As a Pest Control Company owner, missing phone calls while you’re out on service calls can potentially mean lost business.
Consider this. What if the person on the other end of the call you missed was representing an apartment complex. Think of the enormity of that contract that you just missed out on because you weren’t able to pick up your phone!
Stop Missing Out on Business When You’re Taking Care of Business
According to, the average cost of pest control in 2019 is $173. However, this number can be significantly greater, depending on the kind of service needed, and the frequency of visits. On average, a monthly pest control visit costs about $50 and the total quarterly cost can range anywhere from $100 to $300.
This number may seem small, but it adds up when you think about how many phone calls you are missing. When you miss just one call for recurring service at $50/month, that works out to be $600/year – for just one missed call!
