Ken Black is responsible for the agricultural side of the Envu pest control business, primarily covering rodenticides and grain storage pests.
Ken can be seen at many agricultural events across the UK, where he actively engages with farmers about their pest issues.
Ken studied agriculture at Lancashire and then Lincolnshire College of Agriculture, then went on to work for a company installing dairy equipment, but it was an interest in animal health that attracted him to a role managing the sales of rodenticides and animal health products into the agricultural merchant trade, for the company Sorex.
“I was recommended to make the move to Envu because they were about to launch their product range Rodilon, which comprises of an exciting range, of rodenticide formulations that contain difethialone, an active with no known resistance,” he says.
“I’ve been with Envu for five years, and I’ve seen many industry changes and shifts. To me it’s clear that as a company, Envu is trying to ensure that farmers and pest controllers working in the agricultural sector are armed with the right products, and the right advice for dealing with pest issues.” Ken is also BASIS qualified and holds an RSPH level two in pest management.
