About PGH Beegone
The PGH Beegone franchise is an amalgamation of two already established brands: PGH Pest Control & Prevention and Beegone Live Bee Removal and is the only live bee removal franchise in the UK.
The multi-award-winning companies were formed in 2008 by Peter Higgs with the support of the Prince’s Trust and Peter was delighted when they hit the million-pound turnover milestone in 2019. Peter was even invited to show honeybees that have been saved by Beegone to Her Majesty, The Queen!
PGH Pest Control & Prevention is an expert in its field - serving homes and commercial properties. The company’s mission is to identify, control and exclude pests and customer service is at the heart of everything it does.
A holistic approach is employed, so problems are dealt with and resolved while incorporating preventative work for a long-term solution, which ensures client value for money.
The company tackles a wide range of pests, including rodents, insects, large animals and birds, and is passionate about reducing pesticide use.
Beegone Live Bee Removal is a pioneer in the live bee removal field, with an established client base across the UK, from private clients to blue-chip companies and even international and local pest control firms, which sub-contract out to the business.
The safe process removes honeybees and combs from chimneys, walls, roofs and trees without using insecticides. Beegone Live Bee Removal extracts bees alive and relocates them, before bee proofing the structure to prevent more returning. The company carries out all aspects of the work in-house and provides unrivalled benefits to clients.
The PGH Beegone vision is to become the leading national provider of environmentally-friendly pest control and live bee removal services.
It will achieve this by providing second-to-none support to franchisees, allowing them to flourish and prosper in their local areas. Some of PGH Beegone’s values include honesty, teamwork, excellence and commitment.
How does the franchise model work?
There are two PGH Beegone franchise business options: Owner Operator or Management Owner.
If you are an Owner Operator, you will work alone, managing your business and serving your customers. If you are a Management Owner, you will run your business and have staff working for you carrying out the jobs. Whichever option you choose, you will be provided with free business coaching for your first year and six months’ free membership of your local business networking group.
How much does a PGH Beegone franchise cost?
An Owner Operator franchise license and fees start from £27,000, and for a Management Owner, the fees start at £38,000. There are additional estimated set-up costs that will vary from franchisee to franchisee.

How in demand are the services provided by PGH Beegone?
The pest control and live bee removal industries have proved themselves to be both recession-proof and Covid-proof. What’s more, during the Covid-19 pandemic pests have actually become more rife as humans have stayed at home and pests have had free rein.
The pest control industry is growing at an annual rate of 12.1 per cent (IBIS World, UK Market Research Report, July 2020) and currently generates revenues of £572 million. The market is expected to expand over the next five years, as household finances improve and the number of food-related businesses grows.
