I joined the Marketing and Innovation team at Rentokil in 2015, and my mind has quickly become accustomed to the weird and wonderful world of pests. Outside of work my main hobby is music, being a huge fan of bands such as Queen and Led Zeppelin as well as being an avid drummer.


  1. Pest connect gives us a huge advantage over the competitors a great innovation in pest control technology!!

  2. hey! keeping cleanliness is very important. No matter if it’s our house or apartment. It must be clean and pest free. From few days I am in a total mess as my kitchen is full of cockroaches and ants. I was looking for pest control and here I totally got the satisfaction of what I need to do. This five-step cyclical process is really awesome. I am totally impressed. Thanks for sharing this post and if Possible do help me with knowing more about this process and pest control.
