Mansfield Town football match saved by pest control

When One Call Stadium froze solid, everyone thought the Saturday match would have to be called off.

Pest management company and BPCA member, Thermokil Insect Control Services came up with a unique solution to defrost the pitch.

Ryan Overton Director surveyed and provided multiple heat treatment kits to attempt defrosting

Life-long Mansfield Town fan and Thermokil director, Ryan Overton, used his heat treatment kit to defrost the pitch just in time for Saturday’s match.

Normally reserved for bed bugs and other insect pests, the heat treatment equipment enabled the game to go ahead against Macclesfield Town.

Mansfield won the game 3-1.
