HOW TO START INSECTICIDE PRODUCTION BUSINESS IN NIGERIA
Insecticide sells like crazy in Nigeria and Africa because people need to get rid of perceived harmful insects in their homes and surroundings.
According to UNICEF: “Malaria causes more than three hundred million acute illnesses and kills at least one million people every year. Ninety percent of deaths due to malaria occur in Africa, south of the Sahara, and most deaths occur in children under the age of five.”
Malaria kills people everyday in Nigeria. Mosquito is the carrier of the plasmodium parasite that causes malaria illness. Malaria is spread when an infected Anopheles mosquito bites a person. Anopheles is the type of mosquito that can spread this life-threatening illness. It becomes infected by biting an infected person and drawing blood that contains the plasmodium parasite.
They say: prevention is better than cure. Getting rid of mosquitoes is the number one reason most people fumigate their homes and surroundings with insecticide. A single Anopheles mosquito is capable of infecting more than 100 people before its lifecycle ends. In order to not give way to this, people go to any length to destroy mosquito inhumane activities.
There are other creepy crawlies that cause damage in homes: cockroaches, flies, termites, spiders, bed bugs, ants, bees, etc. They all destroy things and their activities are quite embarrassing. Insecticides are used to terminate their lifecycle.
Insecticide production business is lucrative. You can start it without taking a loan from the bank. The market is booming and entering it to take your own share is as simple as ABC.
Look at the big and known brands in the market to see how much they sell their products. Look at the way new products surface in the marketplace. Just imagine why they are coming up with new products everyday. If the demand is not there, no one will waste his/her time, energy, and money to produce a product that no one is ready to exchange his/her money for.

I have a friend who hates cockroaches with passion. This friend of mine can smell cockroaches miles away. Look for customers like him. They are everywhere to find and if they discover that your product works as they desire, they will always buy and recommend your product to customers.
Package your product well. Don’t let it look like something that wasn’t properly made. Design label sticker for it. Make use of uncommon plastic containers to package them well. If you can afford to print a nylon sticker, print it.
