At the heart of your home is you. Without you it's just 4 walls and some furniture. Feeling safe from pests that invade is at the heart of why we do what we do. Pest Control is not about killing bugs, it's helping you achieve the lifestyle you want in the 21st Century.

    Families come in all shapes and sizes, personalities, tastes and standards of living. Pests like cockroaches, ants, spiders, termites, silverfish, mosquitoes, fleas and ticks can take away the good feelings a home is supposed to bring.

  • The first instance of pest control was the first person to slap a mosquito or swat a fly. Early farmers understood there was no controlling rats, deer, rabbits, so they planted enough for themselves and also for the pests! There were pest hunters, along with dangerous concoctions ancient Sumerians (2500BC) came up with that killed more people than pests.  This hit and miss pest management could not be sustained long term - as human population expanded to every corner of the world, so did the pests.  From organised groups of rat catchers who were literally responsible for reducing rat populations by hundreds of thousands, using rat catching dog species that we still see today like the Jack Russell, Dachshund and the Miniature Schnauzer to the first dedicated pest control businesses who branched out into the science of killing bugs - pest control has come a long way.  Early chemical experimentation was deemed in-effective and also extremely dangerous to the pest controller and the people in the homes they were treating.  It's taken 2500 years for Pest Control to really become both effective, safe and environmentally friendly.


    The fact is, if every home received competent and professional pest control we would literally see the eradication of some pests whose populations have exploded.  Unfortunately, there are those who are content to live with pests, or prefer to do dangerous DIY in order to save a few dollars.  There are enough people who respect the trade
