Rokill Pest Control’s Director Chris Turner contributed to a recent feature in Pest Magazine.
Whilst the future is uncertain, in the short term one very obvious affect is the falling exchange rate. On 27 June 2016 the pound hit a 31-year low of 1.3209 against the US dollar as UK bank and non-multinational stocks took a pummelling. Against the euro, one £ only buys you 1.20 euros. This factor alone will cause the price of petrol to rise and will make all imported pest control goods more expensive. Although the converse is true if a company is selling its products internationally.
Otherwise, as our responses below indicate, certainly in the short term, its very much ‘business as usual’.
