New cost-benefit analysis of postponing pest control services template available for BPCA members

BPCA has released a letter template for pest management companies to help explain the importance of continuing ongoing site protection during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The letter includes the pros and cons of suspending proactive (routine) pest control during lockdown and a breakdown of the callouts the client has already had.

The letter template is available in the BPCA Member Documents Area (login required) and can be fully customised for your business.

The letter template was inspired by one shared with us by Charlie Hancock, Managing Director of Vermtek.

BPCA Technical Manager, Dee Ward-Thompson, said:

“Our clients are all in difficult positions and making tough decisions like us.

“We need to be able to continue to protect their sites, so they have a business left to come back to.

“This letter template helps explain the critical nature of what you do and contextualise this against the cost of your service.

“Thank you to Charlie from Vermtek for the inspiration for the document and sharing his work with members.”
