Every day’s a school day

Killgerm’s technical team were recently asked to provide an update on public health pest control for the Edinburgh City Council pest control team.

The pest control unit recognises that refreshing their knowledge of pest biology and behaviour, as well as understanding the latest changes to legislation and innovations in treatment methods, is vitally important when it comes to running an effective, safe and efficient pest control service.

Continuing professional development is so important in the pest control industry today.

The team were very enthusiastic and kept the trainer busy with some very interesting, well thought out and challenging questions.

As trainers, we value the input and the anecdotal feedback on the effectiveness…or not! of pest control treatments out in the ‘real-world.’

Of the day, pest control officer, Jim Byrne, commented, “A fantastic day was had by one and all, given by Robin Moss and Graham Bingham. A wealth of knowledge and experience was presented to our team by experts in the pest control industry. This has given our technicians the information and tools required to tackle the challenges ahead in this ever-changing industry.  The responsibilities to the environment are in our hands. We are now better prepared to serve and deliver a professional service to the people of Edinburgh.”
