Specialist insurance for the pest control industry - Bradshaw Bennett

BPCA and Bradshaw Bennett understand working in the pest control industry is a diverse job in which you can face different situations. Working with chemicals and firearms means that you can face a unique set of risks, and even in the best-regulated companies accidents do happen. So it's important to know that your insurance will protect you, your employees and your business.

With an in-depth understanding of the pest control industry, our business insurance cover can be designed to suit the needs of your individual business. And in the event of an incident, you can rely on Hiscox to handle your claim quickly, efficiently and fairly.
