With twenty years’ experience as a local authority pest control officer I take you through the most common pests, Rats, Mice, Wasps, Fleas, Bed Bugs plus many others. Looking at how we can treat and prevent these creatures from causing us a problems and entering our homes. The talk is packed with anecdotes from my experiences. Hear what it’s like to be attacked by fleas, covered in wasps and ankle deep in flies. A lot of pest problems just require advice, so your members will have the opportunity to get that advice direct from myself. Feeding garden birds without attracting rats, treating ants in your kitchen, keeping cats and dogs free of fleas, are just few of the pest problems I can help with.

About Paul Carpenter

Life in the rainforest was set up both to give rain forest and mini-beast workshops to primary school age children, using live creatures and to give talks and lectures to clubs, groups and societies of all ages. I have been keeping and breeding a variety of invertebrates since the age of 5, and take these creatures into the classroom to give the children a real hands on experience. Over the last 20+ years I have travelled to the rain forests of South and Central America, Africa and Asia, to study Tarantula spiders in their natural habitat. During these field trips we have discovered a number of species new to science. I have a keen interest in all fauna and have thousands of images of the animals and invertebrates seen on these trips. I was a local authority pest control officer for most of my working life but am now semi retired and run Life in the Rainforest as a sole trader.
