Insurance coverages for pest control businesses

Markel Specialty offers coverage specifically designed for your pest control business.

You don’t want cookie-cutter insurance. You want insurance that is created specifically for a pest control business. 

Liability coverages

General liability
General liability coverage in insurance policies protects pest control operators against unforeseen claims and lawsuits. It pays settlements, awards, and the legal cost to defend you, your organization, and your employees. It protects your pest control operation’s reputation which is especially important if a lawsuit is brought against you.

Professional liability
Professional liability coverage for your employees is included at no additional cost with your general liability policy.

Excess liability
Excess liability covers losses that may exceed your policy limits. Catastrophic losses such as death, a major chemical spill, an injured worker or an auto accident can cost more than the typical policy limit. Excess liability with pollution coverage is available with limits up to $10 million.

Workers compensation

A workers compensation policy covers expenses resulting from on-the-job injuries including:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Medical care and rehabilitation services
  • Legal representation and compliance services

Available in select states. Check availability with your agent.
