Did you know that one pair of breeding rats can produce at least 2,000 offspring in just 12 months? Well, that’s one of the reasons why the pest control industry is always busy.
Abate Pest Management, based in Morley St Boltolph near Norwich, Norfolk, has seen its turnover increase by a massive 15.3% over the last 12 months, and just as its profits soar so has its dedication to helping local good causes.
They have helped raise £900 for local charities and community clubs by working alongside specialist internet marketing company Traded Network who donate part of their fees – for getting Abate’s name all over Google and Social Media – to good causes closer to home.
Currently, Abate Pest Management operates with nine members of staff but is looking to increase this to twelve in the next 6-12 months.
As all staff are fully qualified in every aspect of Pest Control the firm has gained three ISO quality standards, Safe Contractor status, CHAS accreditation and is a Gold Member of the National Pest Control Technicians Association, which means they are often called upon to undertake specialist pest control responsibilities.
One area of expertise in which Abate Pest Management excels is bird control.
Over the past 12 months the firm has implemented the latest bird-proofing measures at a wide range of locations including the Sizewell A Nuclear Power Station, the former Norfolk and Norwich Hospital site and several Mock Tudor buildings in Ipswich.
Proofing methods include netting, gels, pin and wire, and a complex electrical track system that can be installed on grade-listed buildings.
Jon Blake, Managing Director of Abate Pest Management: “Bird control is important due to the health-related problems associated with their faeces, which can cause serious concerns. There has also been an increased number of bird attacks on people, especially by gulls.”
In addition to Bird Control, Abate Pest Management works with commercial and domestic clients for rodent and insect control, specialising in the treating of woodworm and death-watch beetle, offering free site surveys and advice, along with long-term 10, 12 or 20-year guarantees that can also be underwritten through the FSA.
