Knaresbrough pest control specialist expands internationally with California acquisition

A Yorkshire pest control specialist has announced that it has completed the acquisition of a California bird deterrent producer.

Pelsis Group, based in Knaresborough, has acquired US firm Bird-B-Gone, which manufactures humane bird deterrents for use across commercial, industrial and residential settings.

The company has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Pelsis Group, but will remain headquartered at its manufacturing facility in Santa Ana.

The acquisition, which was completed for an undisclosed amount, is part of Pelsis Group’s international growth strategy.

Andrew Milner, chief executive of Pelsis Group, commented: “Bringing Bird-B-Gone into the Pelsis family of brands fits within our strategy of adding companies that are leaders in their category, and it brings two of the biggest brands in the pest and bird control categories together under one roof.

“The acquisition of Bird-B-Gone will allow us to equip pest control operators with additional products and solutions backed by our mutual commitment to purposeful innovation, investment, and customer service.”

Bruce Donoho, Bird-B-Gone’s founder and CEO, said: “Julie and I have been blessed by the opportunity to build Bird-B-Gone into the company it is today, and we know that our employees and customers – who we truly consider to be our family and friends – will be in great hands.”
