Meet The Antman® Team

Ant Control Specialists – At Your Service


Paul Chapman – Owner & Operator

Paul moved to New Zealand from Lebanon. He founded Pestproof Pest Control in 2003 and then acquired Antman® Pest Control in 2012. Paul has over 33 years of experience in pest management. He  holds the NZ National Certificate in Urban Pest Management and is a member of the Pest Management Association of New Zealand. Paul was a regular guest Pest expert on Radio New Zealand National.

Passionate about the environment, the move to NZ was a natural fit. In his free time, Paul loves to mountain bike socially and sometimes competitively (He won the Karapoti Challenge Race in 2010).

Paul has hand-picked the Antman® team to ensure that every job is completed up to his own high standard.



Roger Wilmhurst  – Owner & Operator

Roger is an approved handler with the NZEPA. He became involved in Pestproof and Antman® in 2010 and is now a company co-owner. Roger works closely with the service team, allowing Paul and the General Manager to handle the running of the company.

When Roger isn’t working, he’s mainly training and getting ready for his next Half Iron Man competition.


Nic Bolton  – Technical Manager

Hi, I’m Nic – an outdoorsman, creative, hard working head tech for Pestproof who likes to have a good laugh. I’m also an approved handler with the NZEPA.

I have been with the company close to 6 years and love my role as Technical supervising manager, where I can help our team stay ahead of the game and get to exercise my creativity, pioneering new treatment methods and getting the best from the old techniques.”

Every day at work is a new adventure for me, meeting great people in this awesome diverse industry!


David Angus – Certified Technician BSc (Zoology)

Hi, I’m David. I am an approved handler with the NZEPA and have been with Pestproof for about 4 years.

I particularly enjoy the wide variety of work that the position of service technician offers. Outside of my work as a technician with Pestproof I have a keen interest in keeping and breeding birds, as well as an involvement in a variety of outdoor activities.



Denise Dalley – Administration

Hi I’m Denise,  I have been with Pestproof for over 2 years now as Administration  Manager. My main job is to make sure I keep the technicians busy all day and you’ll most likely be speaking with me when you book your job. Outside of Pestproof I like to spend time with my grandchildren and keeping active.
