About Us

The credit for introducing pest control services in Sri Lanka [then Ceylon] goes to the late Mr. Desmond Gunawardena who got himself trained in this field visiting the United States as far back as the early 60’s. Upon his demise, this business was bequeathed to his brother namely Derrick Gunawardena as he was also thoroughly conversant with the subject. Since then it has become a legacy of the Gunawardenas.

The Present Managing Director Shane Gunawardena, a son of Derrick’s who also received further training in Australia in 1987 is now at the helm of the business, as his ancestors used to do.

Shane has further expanded this business branching out to the Maldive Islands where his company is firmly established. We can take pride by claiming that the incumbent Managing Director was the first Sri Lankan to receive Australian Accreditation to handle fumigation work conforming to Australian Quarantine Standards [AQIS] and we could also state with a definite sense of pride that we were the ones responsible for implementing AQIS fumigation standards in Sri Lanka.
