95 years of pest control innovation and expertise

Rentokil started out as an idea of entomologist Professor Harold Maxwell-Lefroy, and has grown into the world’s leading commercial pest control company and the most recognised brand in the industry.

Since our first commercial pest control contract treating the Houses of Parliament in the UK for deathwatch beetles in 1914, we have been committed to protecting homes and businesses from damaging pest infestations through pest expertise, service excellence and leading innovation.

Starting in the 1960s, Rentokil scientists wrote a series of classic textbooks on pests and pest control.
