We don’t just kill bugs, we protect health
I’m Rowan Gregson. I’ve been in the pest control industry for over 35 years. My wife, Pania, and I ran a small, multi award-winning pest management business for 16 years, specialising in termite management. We sold that business in 2016.
During my time in this industry, I’ve seen it all. From an accidental spill of arsenic inside a home to a deliberate mixing of a cocktail of highly toxic pesticides to treat a kitchen cockroach infestation. Even recently, I saw someone spraying for spiders inside a horse stable, with the horse still in it!
We have come a long way in this industry from the times when highly toxic organochlorines were sprayed on everything from top to toe. Thankfully these were banned in Australia in 1990.
What concerns me the most is that these antiquated and unnecessarily dangerous practices are still in use today!
Pania and I started Pestgo with one clear purpose – to protect the health of the people, pets and planet we love, and to empower others to do the same. We have developed a unique health-centred approach to pest management that delivers optimal results with minimal pesticide use and minimal impact to the environment.
We’re only small now but our goal is to engage like-minded, passionate people who put health first to join our team of Environmental Pest Specialists.
At Pestgo, we’re not your standard pest control company. We don’t just kill bugs, we protect heath. So you can live. Pest free.
To protect the health of the people, pets and planet we love
And to empower others to do the same. Not just from the disease and damage caused by pests, but also from exposure to the harmful chemicals traditionally used to manage pests.
Everything we do and every decision we make is centred around safeguarding the health and safety of:
our customers, their family, their neighbours and pets;
our team members;
the general public;
natural resources such as air, water, soils, plants and animals;
beneficial insects and organisms; and
the broader environment in which we all live.
