Feedback from the first MIDS technician forum, held last year at The County Ground in Hertfordshire, was incredibly positive.

Rugby Pest Control's David Cavill said at the time:

“It’s been a great day. I’ve been shouting for years that professional pest controllers need to come together and build a community, where we can share our knowledge and drive the cowboys out of our industry.”

Steve commented on organising events for pest professionals, saying, “I really enjoy when we can all come together like this.

“The forum is open to anyone wanting to network and swap advice and I'm looking forward to seeing lots of fellow pesties on the day."
