Hi and welcome to our Checkatrade page!

My name is Peter Higgs and I started PGH Pest Control in 2009 with the help of the Princes Trust. Since then I have grown my business to keep up with our high demand and have one full time technician Craig Murton and 3 administrators,( see pictures)

Since then we have well over a thousand customers from homes in cities to standard rural properties to small holdings, some on an ad hock basis call out to our routine pest control agreement (where we make a number of visits per year to prevent and control if needed any issues) which stops those annoying pests establishing! We also protect in a very similar way commercial premises like golf clubs, restaurants, clubs, bars, take away and leisure centers.  

We pride ourselves on our work, customer service and keeping up with new changes in the industry by attending regular continued professional development and reading pest mag quarterly (I just don't tell the girlfriend or I think that would be it with us)

Our mission

Is to reduce pesticide and rodenticide use by once controlling pests to then carry out effective prevention and physical proofing work to buildings and areas infested. For example we even move honeybees from structures without destroying them and re-home them with our other honeybees.
