What is Pest Control Insurance?

From creepy crawlers to giant rodents, pest control operators eradicate unwanted species to keep their client’s property a safe and healthy environment.

The variety of extermination services you offer each presents a different level of risk for accidents, property damages, or injuries.

Pest Control Insurance is a policy package designed to provide financial coverage for the common liabilities associated with owning a pest control business, such as environmental risks and third-party property damage.


What kind of insurance does a pest control business need?

As most pest control contractors handle toxic chemicals for extermination, it is important to have insurance coverage specifically designed for the risks you encounter and the equipment you own.

A comprehensive Pest Control Insurance program will typically include the following:

  • Commercial General Liability Insurance: covers for costs associated with common pest control liability risks, such as third-party injuries or property damage.
  • Tools and Equipment Insurance: covers the cost to repair or replace your tools and equipment due to damage from work accidents (includes vandalism) or loss (includes theft).
    • Business property valued under $1,500 is classified as tools, and anything over is considered equipment.
  • Commercial Auto Insurance: provides financial coverage for any business-owned vehicles along with employees who drive it from accidents, damages, and theft.
  • Pollution Liability Insurancecovers third-party bodily injury, property damage and environmental damage due to both gradual and sudden pollution events that occur on a covered job site.
