Why Choose Us

Ants feeding on insecticide gelThe pest control industry is relatively unregulated and so it can be difficult for a layperson to tell if a pest control company is professional and reliable or a 'rogue trader'. You can rest assured that we strive to the highest standards in the industry.

  • We are approved members of the British Pest Control Association.

  • Trained to the highest levels with every technician registered under the PROMPT scheme and holding the minimum RSPH UK recognised qualification.

  • Experienced to a minimum of 18 years in pest control around Brighton, with every type of pest and in every type of scenerio.

  • Insured to a minimum of £10 million product and employers liability insurance. This is far greater than the £1 million offered by most companies.

  • Discreet and professional technicians with no sales targets meaning you wont be under pressure to buy additional bait boxes or equipment that you would experience with some businesses.

Our company was founded in 2002 and has quickly established a good reputation for an honest and reliable service when dealing with pest control issues.

Our customers include many homes and businesses in and around Brighton and Hove from multiple industries including pubs, bars and restaurants, hotels and B&Bs, food processing and preparation, office buildings, warehouses and industrial premises, local government and school premises, retail units and shops.
