#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “rid”, “solution”, “control”, and “exterminate”.
You can see that while these words can be related to pest control, they also suggest that you can expect successful pest elimination from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.
If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.
Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great pest control business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, as they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they may never be your customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and does it represent your business the way you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name conveys a capable, no nonsense company.
This name conveys a bug control service that is extremely thorough.
This name conveys a company who will fight the bugs no one wants.
This name conveys a pest control company that is environmentally friendly.

You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state. Also be sure to search if the name is available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful pest control businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Green Earth Pest Control is a business name that that conveys a services that cares about and uses eco-friendly products or methods in pest control. Appealing to customer values in your business name is a great naming method, as it ensures relevancy and memorability with your target audience.
Pest Detective is a fun business name that conveys their expertise in finding and exterminating pests. A fun name is useful in this industry as pests only bring headaches and problems.
Atlas Pest and Wildlife Control is a professional, corporate sounding business name. It conveys a professional, reliable business that has a history within the industry.
1. Do a competitor analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future. Knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitor’s business name works for them will help you in forming your own business names.
When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on naming your business, not describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally by using overused pest control terms like control, management, pesticide, and insecticide. A more effective business name should convey to customers your business and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real pest control business named “GreenTech Bed Bug Heat Treatment”.
Literally, this name conveys killing bed bugs with heat. At a deeper level though, this company provides an innovative bed bug elimination service that is environmentally-friendly. GreenTech also deals very specifically with one of the biggest pest control issues in North America today.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step to getting into your customer’s mind, a task easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks so they give extra thought to your service among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (The Pest Extractors, Battle Bugs)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Pest Extractors – extractor suggests a skilled removal of many things other than bugs)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable pest control business names could be:
- Nuvane Pest Control
- Alomos Pest Solutions
- Nurilo Pest Specialists
You can find a full list of brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business A1 Pest Control and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like A1ntrol, OnePest-Ctrl, or A1Pest.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
