Fully compliant with all your Health & Safety requirements

Under H & S legislation you are responsible for the H & S of your tenants and the service people you send on-site. Bug King has passed independent H & S assessments by Prequal & Maintenance Manager. You can be confident that you, your customers and your tenants will be protected from any H & S risks.

Tenant Safety

Our treatments use synthetic pyrethroids (which are based on natural pyrethrums). The products we use have been proven safe in sensitive situations over several decades. All treatments are professionally applied and are at a level that are very safe for humans and pets. All products are readily metabolized. If anyone does come into contact with the treatment it will pass straight through them with no long-term build-up.

When baiting for rodents, the security of our bait placements is a high priority. If children or pets have potential access to the bait, we will secure it in a high-quality lockable bait station. If bait is placed in inaccessible areas, we will wire it in place to ensure that rodents can’t drag it to new locations.


It’s always good to take someone else’s word for it!  Read what our customers have said about us following a successful pest removal. We can also arrange for you to speak directly to someone who has used our services, as we appreciate that you need to be absolutely certain about how our pest control works before you ask us into your home.

Use this guy! He is good, was down to earth, upfront and easily and quickly told us which rodents we had where and how to get rid of them.

So this is my second time using Bug King, I had used them last year, since then we have bought a new home and the previous owners had a dog so naturally how new home had fleas which was biting my young children at night. Just like my 5 star experience before we go the same 5 star treatment second time around. Mo was once again earlier than expected which was great he did what he had to and went over and beyond what we expected. Yvette in the office was a breeze to work with. My kids have not been bitten since so I am one happy mum with happy kids! I didn't expect anything less from Bug King and as long as the awesome service doesn't change I will always be a loyal customer if I do anything done at my house they will always be my first point of contact! Thanks again Mo and Yvette best in business!

We've just had our final inspection completed, and have been thoroughly impressed by Bug King's responsiveness and service. Mo was a pleasure to deal with! Thank you Bug King for all your assistance, and putting our minds at ease!

The previous tenants had 3 pets who clearly had thousands of their own pets! After 9 flea bombs, we admitted defeat and I called Mark who was able to accommodate us the next day which was amazing. He explained the flea life cycle and why the bombs weren't working, and why his solution would. Half an hour later the house was treated, and so far so good! I definitely recommend Bug King for a top notch, professional service.
