Do you want to control pests from damaging your crops or from disrupting your day to day activities? Then this Diploma in Advanced Pest Control – Level 3 might just be the one you were looking for. This comprehensive course will not just address pest control in agriculture, but will also address pest control in houses, schools and the surrounding environment to promote healthy living. Since this course will focus on the more advanced aspects of pest control, it is essential for you to have a recognized qualification at level 2 or above in a related disciple to get started with this course.

This insightful course will thoroughly enlighten you on pest control to help you understand its importance in agriculture and in leading a healthy, disease free life. You will be guided on how to implement pest control in a proper way to ward off harmful pests, followed by modules that will discuss about the common pesticide application methods available.

This highly detailed course will then relay the characteristics of a pest, after which an extensive demonstration will be given on various pests such as bees, spiders, mosquitos, scorpions and cockroaches. This program is also designed to educate you on the pesticide applicator to further enhance your knowledge on the subject.
