I am an experienced Pest Control Officer with well developed skills in the control of mammals, insects and birds.  I have had the experience of running my own pest control business before joining Advanced Pest Management on 7th April 2015.  I strive to deliver a highly professional service taking into consideration the individual needs of every customer.

I am an enthusiastic, honest, and a reliable member of the team, respecting the confidential needs of the customer and apply empathy and understanding to all situations.

I endeavour to constantly improve my skills and experience by regularly attending training courses keeping up to date with the latest legislation and technology within the industry.

I have worked for Advanced Pest Management for twenty five years, and in that time have built up many skills in the controlling of all public health pests associated with our temperate climate.  Even after all of these years in this profession I still believe it is the best job in the world with every new day bringing different challenges.  No two days are the same.  I treat all my customers with honesty, curtesy and in total confidence.

Each year I attend pest control refresher courses, including health and safety and the environment seminars now being a priority each year.  These attract continuing professional development points, so ensuring I remain on the Basis Prompt Register, so that you know, as a customer that I have the most up to date knowledge in the pest control industry.
