about us


WHERE IT ALL started

RIDTEK is an Independent, professional and fast growing Family owned Pest Control company operated by Roo and Shane Jones.

You could say that Pest Control is in our blood. It all began way back in the 1920’s in South Eastern Australia when Shane’s Great Grandfather Hof was employed as a rabbit trapper during the great rabbit outbreak. This tradition was carried on through vermin eradication with Shane's Grandfather and Uncle through the 1970's and 80's. Shane & Roo decided that creating a business here in the U.K. and drawing from many years of experience would be a very exciting venture. This has proved to be the case as the business continues to grow. The RIDTEK name comes from the abreviation of Rodent & Insect Defence TEK. We don’t ride horses to work anymore but we still work with the same family values that Hof instilled way back in the 1920's, “Fair Dinkum Pest Control”


Shane was living in Far North Queensland and working on the crocdile tours when he met Roo, who was travelling from England, and they where married in Cape Tribulation in 1996. After many years in Australia we decided that it was time to move to the U.K. in 2007 to be closer to Roo's family. This was considered a rare move as not that many Aussies are traveling to live in the U.K.  Our customers often ask " why?!". It has been all about bringing the family together in the UK. 8 years later we are very proud to be owning and running a local independant, successful, pest control company and we are now climatised. In fact we have grown to love the seasons.
