Beaver Pest Control News February 2016 can confirm that we have yet again proved our Corporate Social Standing by achieving the Trading for Good Accreditation. See below for more details
Beaver Pest Control News February 2016 are also proud to report that we are the 7th British Pest Control company to attain the EN16636 Quality Standard.
Simon Forester, the chief executive of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) said
“This will demonstrate Beaver are on a level playing field with the best pest management companies in the world and will mean that, by employing them, businesses and individuals can be totally confident of a professional service.”
The European Standard for Pest Management Services acts as a demonstration of credentials and a benchmark of quality throughout Europe. Beaver Pest Control became the first company in the capital, and only the seventh in the UK, to be measured against and achieve this standard.
James Craig, who was voted 3rd for the Technician of the year in 2015, attended the presentation with David Lodge who said: “The EN16636 Standard is a mark of quality, so the fact we’re among the first to be accredited in the UK is a feather in our cap. It’s very important for us to demonstrate our professional status and achieving this accreditation provides independent proof of that. The auditing process was tough, but we’re members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and they steered us in the right direction. We believe it will be worth the effort in the end.”
David and James were our figureheads for the photoshoot but our longest employee, Colin Sexton, impressed with his stores management, David Pullinger with his service management, Mel Kemp with the Office management and Dominique Drinkwater for her demonstration of office systems. Well done to all of you.
The EN16636 Standard defines quality and best practice and acts as an assurance that member companies are fully qualified to deal with all species of both rodents and insects and that they are experts in integrated pest management, the use of chemicals and health and safety issues.
Simon Forrester told Beaver Pest Control News February 2016 that he believes the move will deliver significant benefits for our Company. He continued “We know of many pest controllers who are untrained and do not stay up-to-date with the latest products, techniques and legislation – and that’s something which can create big problems. Each member is independently assessed by Bureau Veritas, the global certification body, and we (The BPCA) are the only UK organisation that does this. By using third party verification, clients can be sure our audits are legitimate and that every BPCA member company is held to the same high standard. This is a move which sends out a strong message that when people use BPCA members, they can have peace of mind that the job will be done properly”.

Innovative Pest Management
Beaver Pest Control News February 2016 looks into how Beaver Pest Control can claim to be innovative.
- We use sniffer dogs to find bed bugs
- We have staff trained to go into confined spaces
- We use hawks to frighten off pigeons
- We use lasers and pyrotechnics to scare birds away
- We use gels that appear to look like fire to pigeons
- We tickle their feet with electrical matting called Avishock
For the bed bugs the use of dogs ensures we protect our environment by not using pesticides when there is not a need. Treatment in confined spaces can be very dangerous and strict health and safety regulations apply. We are one of the few pest control Companies that can adhere to these rules and recently work was carried out in the ducts of St helier Hospital. The use of scaring techniques, to compliment proofing measures, ensures that we do not kill birds if we can help it.
Beaver Pest Control are responsible for protecting 13% of the Capitals hospitals. This can even include foxes. In this picture we prevented foxes from burying into the flower beds by installing a one way door and mesh over the ground. Once the foxes had gone the mesh could be removed.
