The training will be delivered by Beegone Managing Director Peter Higgs at several Killgerm workshops and will include advice on offering feral bee removal as a service. 

There will also be training on methods and legislation, types of activity and what you need to know, plus honeybee health and their importance to the UK and the world.

Changes in the industry, such as the withdrawal of the insecticide Ficam W, will also be touched on and alternatives offered.

Members in the pest control industry can attend the Killgerm workshops in Surrey (25 March), Bristol (26 March) and Bocking (29 October) this year.
