The idea for Monarch Pest Control was first conceived in the early 1980s when I joined Rentokil Pest Control as a serviceman as we were known in those days. I worked through the ranks at Rentokil and finished my time there as a service manager. Eventually, I decided to retire early with a view to starting my own pest control company. With the vast experience I had in pest control, it would not have been difficult for me to work for myself in the industry; the only snag was that I didn’t know how to run a business.
When I left Rentokil, I joined an ex-colleague in his small business which is also a pest control company, we then set up a joint venture in pest control and I have been learning the business side of the pest control industry ever since. Much thanks to my ex-colleague.
