The management and control of fly pest problems in the professional pest control sphere, as well as in agricultural settings (especially intensive animal husbandry such as chicken farms, feedlots, piggeries, dairy farms), is one of the most problematic aspects of non-crop pest control.
Fly control is about problem-solving and each fly control situation is different. The course will equip you to evaluate each fly control situation separately and to draw up a management plan for fly control.
MSA Competency based short learning programme
Any professional pest controller/operator or person working in the field of agrochemicals who wants to learn more about all aspects of fly management and control. The course is not only for Pest Control Officers/Operators (PCOs), but also for persons working in the agricultural environment where flies are an issue. These areas include dairies, piggeries, feedlots and chicken farms, or anywhere where intensive animal husbandry is practised. Besides individual farmers, almost all agricultural agents/distributors are confronted with fly control issues. This includes all professional pest control companies, technicians, sales people and management.
