Topic: Spotlight on a Franchisee

Why did you choose the Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control franchise?

I started in the structural pest control industry in 2011 and quickly received requests from customers to service wildlife control needs at their homes and businesses. Without the knowledge and expertise to effectively and humanely handle wildlife control problems I often declined the work and was left feeling as though I had missed an opportunity to both serve my customer and grow my business.

In Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control I now have the systems and solutions to be a full service pest control operator. Having joined Canada’s leader in Humane Wildlife Control my staff and I can better serve our residential and commercial accounts with proven techniques that deliver results, both to the customer and my bottom line.

What benefits does the Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control franchise opportunity offer?

Without question, the skills I have learned though being a part of the Skedaddle team have made me a much stronger pest control professional. I have learned to think more about the structure and behaviour of the pest or animal, giving my customers a higher level of service.

This brand excels in many areas with include marketing, use of technology, safety training and systems, and industry leading humane methodology. I have been involved in numerous franchises over the past 20 years and the support delivered by all at head office is second to none.

The opportunities to provide highly profitable, value added services to any type of customer surprise me every day. I can now recognize the potential to add rodent proofing solutions to a customer who has an ant problem. The possibilities to help a customer realize a pest free environment are endless.

Can you share the experience with the Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control franchise?

The real satisfaction working with Skedaddle lies in the appreciation from the customers when you help solve their problems in a humane and ethical manner. You can see their happiness when you save a bird or a baby raccoon from their attic. You can sense their relief when you fix their home or business and solve a problem that has plagued them for years.
