We Understand the Liability Risks Faced By Pest Controllers

Pest Controllers can cause personal injury if someone on, or near, the property that you are working at is hurt because of your activities.  For example, if someone trips over your equipment or slips on an area that you have treated. That person may claim compensation from you for that injury, and any expenses they incur as a result.

Another Liability issue for Pest Controllers is property damage.  This can occur if your equipment scratches or marks the floor or furniture, if the technician falls or drops something through the ceiling or if an animal is injured or poisoned by the chemicals.

Claims like this can take a long time to resolve, so it is vital that you have sufficient cover in place to protect you and your business from a significant financial hit.
