Founder, Owner

Jay

Read My Bio...

Jay is the founder and owner of Laguna Pest Control. He has a Bachelor of Biological Science, a passion for all things creepy-crawly, and over 15 years’ experience within pest control.

While Jay is very passionate about Laguna Pest Control, he’s just as driven for being involved and improving the pest industry.

Founder, Owner

Nicky

Read My Bio...

Nicky is our co-founder and business owner of Laguna Pest Control. Whilst she’s not as passionate about all the different shapes and sizes of critters, she’s appreciated Jay’s knowledge and love for them.

She was, however, born to run a business with her drive, motivation and people skills. No one can network like Nicky can.

Nicky has recently taken a step back from the business, as she is the founder of the PWAPM (Professional Women in Australian Pest Management) association. Continuing to promote the role of women in the pest industry, she has some exciting new projects on the way. Be sure to watch this space!
