Our History

Early Days of Kwickill

Kwickill Pest Control is a true family business.

Established in 1985 by owner Jim Connolly, first setting up office in the Todmorden area. Originally, the business was providing services to mainly homeowners and farmers within the local areas. Kwickill has always been well recommended due to the type of service provided, knowledgeable and professional pest control servicing with a personal touch. Over the past 30 years, Kwickill have worked with some of the biggest and smallest UK based business, ensuring the same level of service for each individual client.

TV Appearance

Our 15 minutes of fame!

Having been recognised as leaders in Pest Control, Kwickill were approached by BBC 2 to take part in a brand new TV show called Ladykillers, showing just what they do on a daily basis to keep commercial and residential buildings clean from what ever pests are lurking.

During the spring of 2014, pest controller Janet started filming Ladykillers where she visited homes and businesses experiencing problems on a large scale, to help rid people of these unwanted guests. The programme was a four part weekly documentary and aired in March 2015.
