Company profile

Advanced Pest Solutions Ltd. was founded in 2004.  We are a team of specialist entomologists, ecologists, plant pathologists and molecular biologists with considerable commercial and academic experience across a range of pest-control sectors, on an international basis.   We focus on the development and implementation of high-technology solutions to pest and disease problems associated with humans, animals and crops. 

The company was founded by Dr Alison Blackwell, who is an internationally-recognised authority on biting insect biology, particularly biting midges.  Following the completion of a prestigious Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowship, she was supported by the Edinburgh Pre-Incubation Scheme (EPIS) from 2004-2005 during the establishment of APS. 

The company currently had laboratory and office facilities in Edinburgh, UK
