Pest and vermin control

Pest and vermin control business cover

 

All credible pest and vermin control businesses require business liability insurance to cover the risks associated with their operations.

 

For example, all operators should consider the value of the following to cover their commercial risks:

Public liability insurance

Products liability insurance

Business interruption insurance

Tools cover

Professional indemnity insurance

Additionally, it is worth remembering that if you employ one or more people, under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969 you are obliged to have employer’s liability insurance in place to provide cover against the risk of property damage or personal injury – for every day you go without the requisite insurance you risk incurring a fine of £2,500.

 

Pest controllers and their needs

 

Pest and vermin control businesses require insurance to cover them against the risks associated with using poisons and pesticide sprays.

 

Whether you work to exterminate and control rats, mice, wasps, bed bugs or some other pest, you need to ensure that your business is not placed at risk due to an accident or other unforeseen event – although public liability insurance for pest control businesses is not a legal requirement, in reality it is an operational requirement.
