Thinking of a Career in Pest Control? Here is what you need to know.
For those wishing to have a career in Pest Control or new employees entering the pest control industry. It is necessary to have a Pest Management Trained Professional User (PMU number). In order to get this, there is a 9 month grace period in which the trainee is expected to gain sufficient knowledge in pest management and methods to allow him/her to purchase and use rodenticides. This would take the form of mentoring or working with an already established pest control company.
