You need to know what to expect, what to look for and what to do if the contract isn't what you expect. 



Run over two separate days. On day 1 you will consider different UK pests, their impact, surveys and controls. Day 2 having carried out a "project" you will present your findings and discuss in-house vs professional contractors and contract types.
