Our story

Established 15 years ago, Bowman Services Pest Control & Bird Proofing is a household name for pest and vermin control in Kent. Founder Paul Bowman has been working in the industry for over 40 years. He comes from five generations of builders and operated a successful scaffolding company for 28 years, before passing it on to his son so he could concentrate more on his passion for pest control.


Paul’s building background gives him a unique understanding of how pests can get into buildings and his sisters are married to farmers, so the family appreciates the need for vermin control to protect health & hygiene and food processing industry regulations. Bowman Services’ commitment to humane, environmentally friendly methods make it the first choice for many homeowners, businesses and institutions.


Over the years, the independent, family-run firm has developed a first-class reputation. As well as being fully certified and insured, Bowman Services is the first pest control specialist in Kent to be Trading Standards approved and vetted by Checkatrade. Customers across Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Dover, Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs, St Nicholas at Wade, Birchington, Sandwich, Deal, Folkestone, Ashford, Faversham and Sittingbourne often praise us for our reliability, efficiency, professionalism and friendly nature. Don’t take our word for it – see for yourself by checking out our glowing reviews.
