Pest Management at Waste Sites

Pest Management at Waste Sites banner

Controlling flies on waste sites such as landfill, transfer station, IVC, AD, MBT, etc. requires a different plan and process to controlling flies inside buildings.

The perfect training for pest control staff, waste site managers/operatives and regulatory personnel.



If you are responsible for planning, supervising or carrying out fly control work on waste sites, you will gain knowledge of flies associated with waste sites, their biology and impacts, what causes waste sites to have flies, how to monitor, control and prevent.

During the Pest Management at Waste Sites programme, you will learn:

1. Key pest species, biology, behaviour and impacts
2. The range of waste processing techniques, and the opportunities they create for flies.
3. Who should carry out fly control on waste sites?
4. Fly monitoring – benefits and techniques.
5. Non-chemical fly prevention techniques.
6. Insecticide approvals, legislation (COPR, BPR, COSHH) and labels.
7. Insecticides for fly control.
8. Insecticide resistance management.

Upon completion of this course, you will receive a BPCA certificate of completion.
