THERE are thousands of pest controllers in Australia and to be judged the best by your fellow pest controllers is quite an achievement.

At the recent Australian Pest Managers Association national conference, popular local business Bob Gunn Termite Solutions was judged 2014 Australian Pest Manager of the Year.

The award is for excellence and innovation in business professionalism including customer service and technical expertise.

Bob Gunn Termite Solutions won the award over many larger and interstate pest control companies, proving you can never discount the underdog.

The business was also awarded Queensland State Pest Manager of the Year and Queensland Pest Manager of the Year for companies with more than five employees.

The well-known pest control company has been operating for more than 20 years and services a range of areas including Ipswich.

Manager Shane Osborne said he was excited to win the award and see the business recognised by his industry peers.

"We are absolutely committed to providing our clients with the most effective pest control solutions and we regard all our customers as people not a number. Their satisfaction with our service gets our highest priority," he said.

"Winning a national award also shows that businesses in the Brisbane area can match it with larger companies.

"Being local, we work closely as a team and pride ourselves on delivering a prompt, professional and at all times friendly service."

Mr Osborne said he was proud of the teamwork that contributed to the award win.

"Our technicians are thoroughly trained in pest biology, pest breeding habits and in the appropriate methods for dealing with pests," he said.

"They have a great relationship with their clients and take the time to let them know exactly what they can expect with our termite inspections and pest treatments."
