Employment of pest control workers is projected to show little or no change from 2014 to 2024.
Some people may choose to control pests themselves rather than pay for professional pest control services. However, the growing number of invasive species, such as stink bugs, may to increase demand for pest control services.
Job opportunities are expected to be good. The limited number of people seeking work in pest control and the need to replace workers who leave this occupation should result in many job openings.
