to develop a range of poison free humane pest control solutions for fast growing STV International. Developing one of the worlds first plug in sonic rodent repellers lead to sonic cat and fox repellers.

STV are one of the UK’s leading pest control companies, with best sellng brands such as Poison Free and The Big Cheese. We have formed a close working relationship to increase sales and reduce manufacturing costs and time to market.


The pest control market is exceptionally competitive – we were briefed to develop a new range of sonic rodent repellers that would make a step change in quality and performance. Working closely with suppliers in China, STV were able to deliver finished product to B&Q in just 6 weeks from initial brief

Follow up

After the success of the plug-in sonic repeller we have gone on to develop multi-pack design, cat and dog repellers and fly killers.


Edwin Allingham, STV MD says: “We’re delighted with the designs and increased sales that resulted. The new products yielded a four-fold sales increase this year and we’re now considering second generation follow-ups to build on this success.
