Hiya, I’m Julie. The voice at the end of the phone when you call us for pest control.

My pest control life goes right back to when we lived in Lanzarote, Spain in 1999. This is where my husband Stephen and I ran our first pest control business. At the time, I was the first non-Spanish woman to qualify as a pest control technician.

Fast forward to 2018 and Stephen and I are at it again. We started Pestcheck, our family business. This is when I started our blog.

I am passionate about helping people solve their pest problems. My goal is to bring clear, concise information to you about pests and how to get rid of them.

I am a West Vancouverite. Not only did I go to school in West Van, but so did my two boys, Tayler and Cruz.  Family means everything to me and I love working with both Stephen and Tayler.  Stephen and I have been happily married for over 30 years. Fingers crossed, the business will thrive and grow with us!
