We are dedicated to bringing you the largest range of innovative products first, providing you with the tools you need that make a difference. Our product development team have contacts in pest control all over the world, meaning we are one of the first to hear about new products.
Our highly qualified technical department is one of the largest of any distributor in Europe. We are committed to supporting you every step of the way – from independent and unbiased advice on product selection to helping to solve technical problems. You only have to pick up the phone to receive technical help. The technical department also undertakes quality control auditing for major food companies; as well as acting as expert witnesses in prosecutions and disputes, including forensic entomology.
We believe the basis of good pest management is knowledge and we offer a wide variety of courses for different levels of experience and knowledge from basic principles of pest control, to specialist courses and RSPH qualifications. Killgerm was the first training provider to offer the prestigious RSPH Level 3 Diploma in Pest Management.
Our company philosophy is very much based on high product stewardship, ensuring as much as possible the correct handling and use of the products we supply. To help you fulfil legal requirements and protect the environment we provide a Waste Disposal Scheme.
Wherever possible we aim to lessen our environmental impact, issuing you with information on the latest legislation and guidance notes on how to perform environmental assessments. We have also helped to pioneer industry initiatives such as the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU), which promotes the safe use of rodenticides through best practice.

Killgerm Group is committed to an active Equal Opportunities Policy from recruitment to selection, through training and development, performance review and promotion through to retirement.
Companies should be prepared to put back into the industry some of the benefits which they have received. Killgerm Group has encouraged staff to take a full part in professional and trade bodies, providing presidents, directors and committee members to a wide range of pest control industry bodies.
By supporting and funding university research projects, we have added to the scientific knowledge in the pest management industry. By providing speakers for seminars throughout the world, we have assisted in the dissemination of information on a wide range of subjects.
All companies should be prepared to protect the environment so that those who follow us can enjoy a safe environment where they work, live and play.

We operate an industry supported waste disposal scheme whereby redundant pesticides or used packaging are disposed of.
Killgerm is registered under all relevant industry schemes, such as the British Agrochemical Supply Industry Scheme – a voluntary scheme whereby warehouses are inspected to ensure that they meet the highest standards.
