BPCA bogus pest controller warning
We came across an article recently where the BPCA has been encouraging residents in the West Midlands to ask for ID before allowing pest controllers into their homes.
A conman was jailed for 7 years, after posing as a pest controller, and conning people, particularly elderly and vulnerable people, out of thousands of pounds.
Simon Forrester, chief executive of the BPCA, said: “The threat posed by bogus officials is ever-present and people should always be on their guard.”
He went on to say “Professional pest controllers will never cold call anyone, so people who are approached out of the blue should simply close the door. Those who do find evidence of an infestation should only approach pest control companies who are registered with a professional body such as the BPCA.”
PESTUK are members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), and our technicians never cold call. If you have been approached by someone offering you pest control services, we recommend calling a reputable member of BPCA like PEST UK and get advice you can trust.
PESUK are also Trading Standards Approved, giving you extra reassurance that you are dealing with a reputable pest control company.
