When Hurricane Angus struck the UK last week, it certainly created a great deal of damage.

Jon and Paul at the 2016 Croydon Business Excellence Awards

Last year I wrote about how important it is to take part in business awards. In my blog, “It’s taking part that is important” The Croydon Business Excellence Awards 2015, I told you the tale of how we were shortlisted for five awards, but in the end we won nothing. As I said at the time, it isn’t the winning but the taking part, that matters.

It has been a strange start to the year. As May slowly draws to a close, I have only just seen my first May bug. Once you have seen a flying May bug you won’t forget it; especially if one gets caught in your electric fly killer!

As a pest controller with over 35 years’ experience, I am pretty used to stepping into unknown environments.

Over the last few weeks you may have noticed there have been a number of terrible stories about bed bug infestations in the newspapers.
