Event description

Description

This course is designed for commoners, farmers and landowners in the New Forest to help plan and carry our rat and mouse control.

It is intended to provide a full working knowledge of both preventive and curative methods to be able to plan, implement and monitor a control programme that is appropriate to the situation, assessing and using the most efficient and safe methods and with due regard to the environment.

The workbook has been produced to accompany a Lantra Awards training course and to inform operators of current ‘safe working practice’. It is written to give broad guidelines. Users of rodenticide must refer to literature, product labels and Health and Safety data sheets of any products they may use in controlling rodents.

It is the responsibility of anyone carrying out rodent control to be familiar with the relevant legislation concerning the humane and effective management of rat and mouse problems. Whilst guidance is given during the course on the main legislation and its relevance to rodent control, it is essential that those engaged in pest control should keep up to date with changes in legislation that may affect pests or pest control. The final interpretation of any piece of legislation rests in the court.
