The Rudducks business in pest control, pet and animal health care products commenced in 1908 following the arrival of Dr Harold Rudduck, an English veterinarian. Dr Rudduck commenced his veterinary practice at 47 Queen Street, Melbourne and later relocated to 556 Lonsdale Street. Shortly after commencing his practice, he started manufacturing products that would improve pest control, pet and animal health, or solve a variety of complaints from flies, fleas & ticks to rodents.

In 1970, the Hess family acquired the business and predominately supplied chemical products to the defense forces throughout Australia. Over the years,it developed and manufactured a range of pest control products and natural pyrethrum products.

Since 1990 Rudduck has focused solely on the Pest Control Industry. Manufacturing, sourcing, developing and distributing pest control products with a specific focus on natural pyrethrum.
