LinkedIn +

The pest control business of leading facilities manager, MITIE, is organising two free-of-charge seminars aimed at commercial property managers, facilities managers and all managers responsible for pest control service. Pest is acting as media partner for these events.

Both of these MITIE seminars will explore how pest control practices are changing for the better, whilst reducing the risk to the assets, the people or the products of commercial enterprises.

Expert speakers will cover a wide range of topics, with a focus on:

• Assessing your risks and managing compliance within the new biocide regulations. Peter Trotman, MITIE
• Population dynamics – how risks can quickly grow. Grahame Turner, MITIE
• Bed bugs the hidden enemy – how likely are you to sleep with them? Danny Ashton, MITIE
• Pesticides and their misuse – Paul Butt, Natural England
• Birds – possibly the most expensive pest problem you may encounter. How to protect your buildings. Grahame Turner, MITIE

The first seminar is to be held at London Zoo on Wednesday 29 January 2014 and the second at the National Museum of Football in Manchester on Wednesday 19 March 2014.

There is opportunity for delegates to gain a real life insight into best practice in pest prevention and control whilst also getting the opportunity to share experiences with your peers.

“Events such as these are important stepping-stones in a journey towards understanding property manager’s pest control risks and managing compliance efficiently,” explains Peter Trotman, managing director of MITIE’s pest control business.

Frances McKim, editor of Pest said: “We are delighted to act as a media partner for these events. With the ever increasing rules and regulations governing pest control activities, not to mention the demands on cost control, commercial organisations, including local authorities, are increasingly looking to out-source their pest control activities. We felt linking with MITIE gave us an opportunity to explore these opportunities further and to meet those companies considering this possible route.”

Both events are free to attend, but booking in advance is important due to limited places. The seminars will start at 10.00 and will be followed by a networking lunch. As added incentive, after the seminars, delegates can enjoy a free tour of London Zoo including the recently constructed £5.3m gorilla enclosure or experience the new Tiger Territory. If football is your thing, you can enjoy a free tour of the National Museum of Football.
