Whilst working in a FIFO mosquito control position, I started a mosquito control service business (outdoor pest control) whilst on my weeks off. We have built this business to have 5 licensed territories in the south east of QLD and conducted over 30,000 treatments since we began.

I met my future business partner Katie Clibbon after she offered to assist me with some marketing efforts in 2016.
We became business partners in 2017. Her skills were in marketing and product development, so after her own bad experiences with DEET-based insect repellents, what better product to develop as a vertical from our mosquito control business than an all-natural insect repellent that actually works.

In 2019 we launched NoBites personal insect repellent which, after independent efficacy studies of our formulation is now the longest-lasting natural repellent ever produced in Australia and is now stocked in Woolworths supermarkets.

Our business has also produced APVMA-registered insecticide products for use within the service side of things. We have successfully moved into the DYI space with a version of the insecticide by launching Biting Midge and Mosquito Barrier which is available at Bunnings stores Australia Wide.

In 2020, we launched another company called Dronework Technologies Australia. We partnered with Leading Edge Technologies in the USA to bring into Australia a UAV aerial application system made specifically for broad-acre mosquito control larviciding.
We have recently been successful in securing a contract with Redland City Council as the first council in Australia to use UAV's for mosquito control as a BAU part of their program.

Our services also have extended recently to consulting and response to the Japanese Encephalitis outbreak to numerous Australian Pork producers.
