“BPCA membership also gives us technical and business support as well as a great communications network keeping us abreast of the latest industry developments alongside providing opportunities to grow our business.


“Anyone can find themselves with an unexpected pest situation and clients need to have confidence that the people they ask for help know how to tackle the issue in the most effective way.


“Our BPCA membership immediately demonstrates we take what we do seriously and that we work to best practices within the industry.”

The BPCA works with pest control companies of all shapes and sizes, offering a range of technical advice, business support and access to the latest expert guidance.
