We don't require our franchisees to have previous experience in pest control or business; we believe there is no race, age, gender, or social class in our industry. If you aren't put off by insects and dead animals, are able to drive, and love the outdoors —then you're already a prime candidate.

We require a modest minimum investment of only £16,500 + VAT, then preparations can begin. Overall, we are looking for individuals with the absolute desire to succeed. 

We also work with an independent Finance company who can lend up to 70% of the investment. *usual credit terms apply.

Pestforce's history

Pestforce franchise worker in his van

The story of Pestforce dates back to the early 1990’s – the days of Depeche Mode and Palace losing the FA Cup Final – when founder Paul Wilkinson made a living as a Game Keeper at a well-established shoot. Paul was a keen shot and had always been interested in the outdoor life, including pest control, and turned one of his life’s passions into a business.

In 2014 the business was then acquired by Paul and Sean under the forces group name, following their previous success and experience in the franchise industry. Since 2014 Paul and Sean have worked with the team and together they have set out a plan and road plan to achieve the overall business vision of making Pestforce the most successful and recognised name in Pest Control.

Paul and Sean’s experience of franchise businesses and facility management meant that they were ideally placed to take Pestforce over and take it to the next level. The team at Pestforce have over 30 years of experience and practical knowledge in managing Pest Control business.

Case studies

I am already beating all expectations…

"Working with Pestforce is the best of both worlds. You work for yourself having your future in your own hands but you have the backing of head office and the wealth of knowledge from them and your fellow franchises who are all more than happy to help. A month in from my start date and I am already beating all expectations and with hard work I am starting to build up my contracts. I love being a pest controller and I now look forward to Mondays instead of dreading it. I would recommend Pestforce and it's values to anybody, joining was the best decision I could ever of made."

- Ken Iles (Pestforce Hartlepool, 2019) 


I wish I did this 10 years ago...

"The training is great and the business model is paying off. Me and my son George have always been into game-keeping and we spotted an advert for Pestforce in the BASC magazine and we get in touch to enquire about a franchise. The help and advice from day 1 has been fantastic. It was a big step for us but after a month of ups and downs I can honestly say I wish I did this 10 years ago. Sean, Gayle, Phil and the rest of the team are there for you, supporting you all the way with financial, marketing and technical support. The training is great and the business model is paying off. If it continues the way it is, we will get our investment back in 6 months. If you work hard, this is a great investment and I would recommend it if you are thinking of a change of career. Give Gayle a call it could well change your life."

- Marc Vincent & George Vincent (Pestforce Northampton, 2019)

‘All I can say is I highly recommend Pestforce’

"I first of Pestforce when I saw an advert in a magazine. I looked at a few franchise opportunities and chose pest control for a couple of reasons. I am a keen shooter and I could see some synergies between my passion and my profession and I really liked the ethos of the forces group. The whole onboarding process was very smooth and Head Office was very helpful throughout the whole journey. The technical training was fascinating and I especially enjoyed the insight into pest biology and control. To anyone who is considering Pestforce all I can say is I highly recommend it."

- Trevor King Pestforce Milton Keynes

“The training was intense, informative and gave me all the knowledge I needed to start up my Pestforce franchise. When it all finished I was excited to start in my area. By no means was I left to fend for myself. I cannot thank everyone at head office enough for always being at the end of the phone to continually support me during my first few weeks of starting up. I look forward to what my future with Pestforce holds. I truly changed my life around.”

- Werner Starbuck (Pestforce Cardiff, July 2017)
