Green Shield Ltd started up in 1997. The company was originally formed to sell an amazing electromagnetic rodent repeller, which we found in the US and which had sold millions of units on a shopping channel. We were skeptical so had it tested by an independent biologist who said it was the first unit of the many he had tested that showed an effect on rodents. From that, we went back to the manufacturer and gave them the specification for two more powerful versions, one with a small form factor for cafes and locations where the field found it difficult to penetrate, and a much larger unit for industrial usage.
We are the only pest control device company with membership of the British Pest Control Association. We’ve been members of that organisation since 2005.
We liked the professional approach of the British Pest Control Association, and so applied and were the first electronic pest repeller distributor to be accepted into the manufacturers and distributors division. We always saw the Green Shield devices as an additional weapon in the armoury of tools to prevent rodent infestations, and ask our customers to always prevent rodents having easy access to the location and removal of all attractants to aid the efficient reduction in rodent activity, in addition to using our devices.
From a commercial point standpoint, we have installed the large units in hotel chains, restaurants, fast food outlets, supermarkets and as part of the process, we always did a survey before and after installation. For the domestic unit which we sold on the web, the price point meant that surveys were not feasible, so we included a 60 day money back guarantee, for those rare occasions where the customer was not happy with the result. And there can be many factors, such as damp walls, poor electrical wiring, or even that the resident still believes that it works like a force-field and the rodents will immediately disappear, which it doesn’t and they won’t. But we have had so few returns of units that, hand on heart, I can say that these units really work.
Over the years, we have been asked many times if we sold any other environmentally friendly products, so we are now building up our stock of proven products to add to the GSD pest repeller, and have redesigned the website to allow this.
