History Of Hovex

Hovex is a proudly owned Australian brand that focuses purely on providing highly effective, innovative, value pest solutions for Australians. Hovex was first seen as a Brand in 1949. It was used for Methylated Spirits, MineralTurpentine, White Spirits and Kerosene. Over the years as Pascoe’s evolved, so to did Hovex. The major turning point for the brand was the launch of camphor and mothballs in 1994. This established Hovex as a pest control brand and camphor and mothballs are still available from all leading supermarket and hardware chains. The product inside is still the same, just the artwork on the packaging has changed.

Since then Hovex has developed products to control the following segments.

Flies, Mosquitoes, Moths, Silverfish, Wasps, Spiders, Ants, Fleas, Cockroaches, Ticks, Rodents, Bed Bugs

The Hovex brand has been built on 3 simple principles.

  • Effective – Hovex products will solve your pest issues or we will give you your money back.
  • Innovation - Hovex has bought innovation to the market when possible, to ensure our products deliver the best possible results to our consumers. This includes Extra Strength Formulations that are made and developed with Australian Pests in mind.
  • Value – Buying Australian Made and Owned does not always mean paying more. We make a commitment to you that we will offer you value products, compared to our overseas, branded competitors.

The Hovex Brand has evolved through the years as well, to the brand you now see on your supermarket and hardware shelves today.
