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.
