Property Information

Facilities:

The business is being operated from a residential area in Woodland Hills from approximately 500 square feet of office space. The operation can be moved to a home garage or a commercial space.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The potential to grow this business is endless. A new owner can grow it both in the pest control industry or keep on and expand his presence in the bee control business. The current crew can help to move the new buyer any direction they choose.

Competition:

There is a lot of competition in the pest control business. At the same time, most people in this industry report that they have plenty of work. Additionally, they specialize in bees and wasps, where many insect control businesses do not.

Reason for selling:

This unique business started by Simon Sharf in 1982. After being exposed all his life to bees, he turned around and made his long-time passion into a very successful business. He ran this business until last year when unfortunately, he passed on. His wife is managing the business at this point and holding the business together. This is an amazing business with many opportunities. At this point the business is doing well but is not running to its full capacity.

Support & Training:

Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost. Pest control and bee control services provided do require licenses from the state with proper registration and insurance. The business has two full time technicians as well as a bookkeeper/secretary. The skills required are knowing how to run a business. It is a plus to have some knowledge about this industry.
