About PGH Beegone

Why PGH Beegone?

As a PGH Beegone franchisee you have the chance to earn serious money while doing something fulfilling like actually saving bees! You’ll also get to be your own boss and work the hours which suit you and your family’s lifestyle. The pest control and live bee removal industries are high growth and have huge potential too while also being pandemic and recession-proof. Our core businesses have remained fully operational throughout lockdown and we turned over our largest ever profit in 2020.

Now, due to increasing customer demand, we have franchise opportunities across the UK. All our franchisees receive full training and comprehensive support. Find out what it’s like to run a PGH Beegone franchise from David Hasler, owner of PGH Beegone Bury St Edmunds:

PGH Beegone's history

What we do…

PGH Pest Prevention and Beegone Live Bee removal were started in 2008 by Peter Higgs with support from the Prince’s Trust. Beegone was the first business of its kind in the UK at that time and Peter was even invited to show honeybees saved by Beegone to HRH The Queen in 2016.

The businesses hit £1m turnover in 2019 and Peter decided that the time was right to franchise.

PGH Pest Prevention deals with over 30 different animal species ranging from birds, to rodents, to larger animals and insects, offering over 80 different services and is renowned for solving difficult pest problems that others can’t.

Beegone Live Bee Removal specialises in live honeybee, comb and honeybee swarm removal from chimneys, walls, roofs and trees without the use of chemicals, extracting bees alive and relocating them – we actually save bees!

Both brands are passionate about the environment – dedicated to reducing the use of pesticides wherever possible by implementing proofing and preventative measures as part of the service.

Customer focus is a huge part of our approach to business – it’s not what we do, it’s the way we do it – and all our systems and processes are geared towards providing a second-to-none customer experience.
