British Ratin was established in 1927 as a pest control company by its Danish owner Sophus Berendsen A/S, the company used a bacillus developed by a Danish Scientist George Neumann to control rats and mice. Demand for pest control services began extending beyond rodent control to insect control. British Ratin made its first acquisition, Chelsea Insecticides Ltd in 1940. In 1957 British Ratin acquired Rentokil, the combined businesses continued to use the Rentokil name, becoming Rentokil Laboratories Ltd. in 1960.[3]
