I wear a columbia button up UV protectant shirt and columbia cargo shorts. Pants aren't my thing for swinging around in the attic. Especially down here in the heat. The shirt is lighter than anything else I could find. Have my company name embroidered over the pocket. The second day on the job, if doing exclusion work, I wear a water wicking T-shirt with the logo embroidered on it. Pair of Merrell hiking shoes. So basically have the shirt on at the door, then take it off, hang it up in the truck and go to the T-shirt for the dirty stuff.

Who says that you can only wear one shirt/day?

Pesky you are my hero!!

Its basically the same around here. But its alot of country folks around here. My usual outfit is a nice pair of carpenter jeans and shirts with my logo on it tucked in. If i know im headed to a real nice area I'll throw my polo on with my logo embroidered on it. Normaly though its a casual outfit.

Continuity is the key. So what ever you choose as a uniform it should be continuous. Looking the same whether it is you or your employees creates a comfort level for your customers. And from there it goes to branding.

Like it or not WCO's are part of the pest control industry and your customers see you that way. To them a raccoon is a pest just as a roach is. So look to the big bug companies, let them do the market research and then adapt it to your business. And I am not talking techniques but rather how you answer your phone, your uniforms, your truck and so on. They have spent big bucks to understand the comfort level of customers take advantage of it...for free.

We usually deal with the lady of the home. Who is she more likely to be comfortable with the Orkin Man or the Turtle Man? First impressions you know? And then ability comes into play. And while the turtle man may outperform the orkin man just how comfortable will she be to offer a recommendation? Something like.."he got rid of our squirrels but...."

Who told you camo was in style pesky? Was he wearing platform shoes and bell bottoms?
Whatever works for you though I'm fine with... you've been busier than me that's for sure...

I just see it in the stores forsale , people are wearing It all over . Lots of camo shorts I see . I just hope this new war brewing doesn't run gas up to high . The gas price is just killing this state . Poeple spending to much at the pump ,then say I'm to high on my price . There just trying to save we're ever they can . Which is good to I guess

Okay Pesky, I give up. What new war that is none of our business, are we getting involved in now? ( I can only hope that we're attacking the capitol )

I have already got a pm today from someone stating I should stay on topic . Looking like Israel and Iran and who knows who else . We have also moved a fleet of war ships in . I'm only stating this because if gas goes any higher ,it will not mader what I wear on the job . I was also liking The uniform pictures of professionals on the job . I might give that look a try myself . Give the gone fishing look a break for the day

Charles, Thank you for weighing in! As a professional, you understand that what your lady-in-her-$1M-house customer is comfortable with means a lot more than what I'm comfortable with. Could Turtleman /Billy get the job done? Maybe... I don't watch that trash. Would they be considered trustworthy by Lady? Not likely.
Rick, good-looking outfit. How d'you like those firehose pants? Must be hoooot in summer!
