Having spent 35 years in the Pest Control industry working for one of the country’s largest Pest Control companies, Jim Graham (father of our two Directors, Ross and Stuart Graham) decided that a more personal and flexible pest control service was needed.
So with his wife Anna, Jim formed Graham Environmental Services Ltd. in 1992.
Since then, we have built a solid reputation for being an efficient, reliable and effective provider of pest control services to private householders and business owners alike, growing into one of Scotland’s largest independent Pest Control Companies.
We are a proud and active member of the BPCA (British Pest Control Association), adhering to their codes of practice.
We hold our ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 integrated management accreditation, meaning we take health and safety very seriously.
As a family business we will maintain respectful relations with customers, suppliers, work colleagues and the communities that we work in
