A career as a pest controller, providing services to residential and commercial customers, is not for the squeamish or feint-of-heart. When you’re undertaking wasp nest removal, and the removal of other insects such as bed bugs, spiders and fleas, and vermin control – especially in areas where there is waste food – you need a strong stomach and a fearless disposition.Start your quote
As a pest controller, you will typically be dealing with members of the public, so will need public liability insurance (PL) in case of damage to property or you cause an accident to a member of the public.
The PL policy offers protection for you and your business from compensation claims due to accidents and injury to members of the public, or due to accidental damage to property. We also offer a range of other covers that can provide all-round protection for you and your business.
If you provide pest control services, including vermin control, you will be working at customer’s homes or in business premises. Each of which brings you into contact with members of the public, which means you can become a liability for them, which is why you could benefit from our range of tradesman insurance policies.
Examples of why pest controllers need insurance include:

The cost of an annual premium varies depending on your type of cover and the level of cover you need. Our public liability insurance for pest controllers starts from £106.00* for £1million of annual cover, which we think represents real value for money.
* Price quoted is inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax at the current rate, and based on a pest controller with 1 employee, 5+ years trading and no claims in the last 3 years.
As well as public liability insurance, we offer a range of insurance covers for your individual circumstances, including:
The excess is the amount you pay towards a claim you make on your insurance policy. For example, if you make a claim for £1,000 for stolen tools and your excess is £200, then your payout will be £800.
