Management of urban pests
Our expertise in pest biology, insecticide technology, and control methods have meant that we have been called upon to provide advice on appropriate control methods.
We have also acted as expert witnesses in litigation involving pest control and insect problems. Some significant contracts which we have undertaken include:
- Provision of advice to the NSW Department of School Education on pest management and pesticide use in NSW schools.
- Provision of advice to manage pests in Parliament House, Canberra during its construction and in the years of its operation since that time – a total of 20 years. This has involved preparation of tender documents, on-going advice on significant pest problems, quality assurance checks and reports on control measures taken by professional pest control operations.
