Commercial Director

In 1996 I started at Bisseling BV in Gemert I started to set up professional pest control for agrarian companies. This company later became Protekta pest control.

Back in the day only toxins were used. Together with Protekta I developed the use of organic pest control for all kinds of companies in the year 1997-2004. We had our own cattle farm as a test-company at the time.

Organic pest control is still evolving today, look at mite and beetle control for example. Agricultural businesses realize that this method of pest control reduces the use of biocides by 70% and helps against the development of resistance. In this period I have given many presentations to compound feed companies, study clubs, Helicon training etc.

In 2014 Protekta was taken over by Rentokil.

Since January of 2015, I work for Agro Pest Control with a close-knit group to achieve further professionalization of pest control in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.

Agro Pest Control helps you get rid of your pests.

Senior account manager

In 2008 I started as product manager at APC. My job was to make a control plan against pests and execute it.

The goal is still to keep the farm free of any unwanted guests such as: flies, rodents, cockroaches etc. During my career I have given many presentations for study groups and agricultural schools. I also gave lectures at the University of Utrecht.

Pest control includes: research, planning and a responsible execution. Our goal is to reach the optimal result with as little biocide as possible.The development of the mado-services was one of my pillars and is still an important aspect in optimal fly control.

I also see that organic fly control is becoming an increasingly important aspect in a control plan. The predatory flies, mites and parasitic wasps take over large parts of the control.

Agro Pest Control is a leading company in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. Our experienced and fully certified pest controllers work independently and with a lot of enthusiasm at APC. We have specialized in the agricultural sector. The knowledge we have gained is indispensable in the making of a customised control plan.
