Crunch the numbers yourself and choose your companies profit retention. Then choose the profit retention your company could have. There is a choice in most treatment scenarios. The worst case scenario is probably your current status. Why would a firm continue to forfeit 50% profit in lieu of placing a Microwave Treatment System in a truck, with an
existing Treat Person, who could perform Several Microwave Treatments weekly instead of fumigation and do them within the applicators given work schedule?

It is understandable that there are firms who need to keep their fume crews busy, so they fumigate everything. After all, good loyal employees are hard to find and keep. However, too often work slows and layoffs are mandatory. Then again, at times, workloads expand beyond normal work conditions forcing new hiring. As this occurs, firms have a tendency to think growth in order to improve profits during the ups and downs of business. Often this causes undue hardships to management and employees who could be applying their specialized skills for company good elsewhere.

Adding a Microwave Treatment Crewman to handle the work overload at increased business times will allow to hire less new employees when needed and provide needed profit capitol to help carry existing good employees longer during the slow downs. In this way company growth can be beneficial rather than a burden.

In addition, business growth will occur even more rapid just from word of mouth and advertising the application of a non-chemical Microwave treatment alternative. This also opens the door to new clients, those who are anti chemical, never use pest services and represent about 15% of the current public.
