BTP | Professional Bird & Pest Control
BTP was started in the millennium year of 2000, the founder, Simon Neville was working for a major blue chip company, where he had found himself working for the last 10 years after a background in a formal agriculture education that included pest control.
Always drawn to the outdoor life and a countryman at heart, he wanted to get back to what he enjoyed – flying his hawks. After a chance meeting one weekend at a country fair (where he was displaying his birds).The owner of a warehouse, that was suffering with Pigeon problems and wanted a humane solution. Simon and his team of Harris Hawks were duly dispatched to Slough to sort the problem flying the hawks around the building to scare off the pigeons – it worked! The building next door had a similar issue so we solved that also. It then became apparent their may be a business in this?
Over the next few months Simon read up on the subject, spoke to friends who were pest controllers and visited seminars and trade shows to educate himself. After getting a formal qualification in Pest Control, he was off building the business until he had enough work to leave the day job and go full time. Fortunately he picked up a lot of work in the film industry keeping locations bird & pest free, that BTP still maintains today.
