For many pest control operators, pest control service sales are lower in the winter when compared to the hot summer months. Some pest control companies have even built ancillary businesses around their "slower" season. Christmas decoration installation is a popular choice and is a great way to keep pest control technician crews busy for 6 weeks before Christmas and even a few weeks after. Here are a few interesting data points about the Christmas holiday and why holiday decoration and Christmas light installation might be an attractive opportunity for you company.
Christmas is by far the most popular holiday in America; 76% of people say it is their favorite holiday and the most wonderful time of the year. This time of year, Christmas can be seen everywhere you go. Most stores don't even wait until Halloween to start stocking up on Christmas items and soon the radio will be playing carols non-stop. But there are certain aspects of Christmas that not everyone enjoys. In a recent survey conducted, 55% of people said that their least favorite part of Christmas is taking down the decorations.
Christmas can quickly turn from joyous to dangerous when holiday lighting is involved. With an average of 1,300 people ending up in the emergency room every year from injuries related to holiday lighting, hanging a sign like this one in front of your home could be tempting. (But which house do you like more….?) Despite that, 87 percent of people say Christmas decorations make them happy and enhance the holiday experience.
Decorating for Christmas can be dangerous and it can also become expensive. In 2011, Americans spent $6 Billion on Christmas decorations alone, and spent another $3.4 billion just on Christmas trees. On average Americans spent $850 on Christmas in 2012 and while the largest portion is spent on gifts, a fairly large sum is spent every year repairing, or buying new Christmas decorations.
Wouldn't it be great to see a beautiful Christmas light display without putting any of the blood, sweat or tears into it? The Christmas song "The 12 Pains of Christmas" aptly describes how a typical holiday lighting attempt goes:
I'm tryin' to rig up these lights!
What, we have no extension cords!?
Now why the heck are they blinking!?
One light goes out, they all go out!
Get a flashlight I blew a fuse!
