Bed bugs are far more common than people like to say, and a bed bug business can keep you busy serving customers year-round. With our heat treatment packages, providing customers with highly effective treatments couldn’t be easier or more hands-off.
But how do you start a bed bug business? Here are 5 things you need before starting your bed bug business.
5 Things You Need Before Starting Your Bed Bug Business
1. An LLC and Licenses
The first step is to get your Limited Liability Company (LLC) set up and acquire any licenses you may need to operate in your area. This will provide your business with legal protection and allow you to operate in your chosen state.
You will also need to find out and obtain the licenses you will need to run a bed bug business in your chosen state/s before you can start operating.
There are businesses online that can set up your LLC for you for a nominal fee if you aren’t sure how to do it yourself, and your local government website will tell you what licenses you need, if any. If you aren’t sure, contact your county clerk’s office for help.
2. Logo and Website
Once your business has been registered with the government, you can look at branding and creating an online presence. These are non-negotiable - your website is your online storefront and some branding is necessary to make sure you are recognizable.
