About Project Multi Pest
Meet Matthew Blackwell
Pest Control Technician and Falconer
I’ve been in the pest control industry for over ten years, and during that time, I have become increasingly concerned about an over-reliance on chemical poisons to manage pests. Poison is cheap but it can deliver an unnecessarily prolonged death, and risks accidentally poisoning other nearby animals – a big concern if you have pets. Worryingly, we are seeing increasing numbers of rodents that are resistant to poison.
I knew that there had to be a better way.
I began to research natural traditional pest control methods that have been successfully used for centuries. Falcons, dogs, and ferrets can be trained to identify, flush out, scare and dispatch pests quickly, while wildlife management practices reduce suitable habitat.
I set up Project Multi Pest in 2016 to combine my deep experience of modern technologies with these traditional techniques. I have developed a unique and highly effective approach to pest control that minimises environmental impact and avoids unnecessary cruelty.
