Best Answer moxy , 17 December 2015 - 10:49 pm

Your right Phil I think Tomo has been grooming young Nottzhunter for my job as assistant ferret wrangler..
I have become a part timer this winter..My poor dogs and ferts have been sadly neglected whilst I have been doing my training etc etc.
 
I'm ready to get back out on the bunnies again now though ... So you better get that BnB booked ASAP. :yes:


You've another day over my way before you sign up to any swingers weekend at a sordid B&B Young man!! Go to the full post

I like ta Boogie ! I'm a dancing fool. :boogy:

 

You know that If I fail I'll be gutted. So I have been doing lots of homework and probably learning things that are irrelevant to the Course or the Examination. . . My head is full and it hurts. . I have lost sleep worrying about questions that I've got wrong in practice tests etc etc. :blink:

Don't get yourself wound up mate , even with all the mock papers you can find you will never come across all the questions that may be set . I took mine in early April , if you have done any sort of pest control before you will almost certainly , maybe, could just about , possibly pass ?????????????

As said before a lot of it is general common sense , yes there is some legislation, but if you've done the course and stayed awake you will p!ss it .

 

GOOD LUCK.

Are there many advantages to gaining these qualifications?

One question that got me was....'which native insect can be confused with bedbugs?'

And the answer is ?  
A guess - shield bug?

I did the exam last Friday chaps..
Cannot say it was easy.

Just got to wait at least 6 weeks to find out now if I passed or not.
Good thing is that if I do fail any one of the 3 sections .. I can re-sit that part again.

The bedbug question got me too chaps.. I guessed at cockroach .. Lol. I knew it was wrong .

Thanks everyone

:hmm: I think you had best start advertising for another ferreting partner Tomo...

 

I've seen the effect, that a Red Rust Grain Beetle has on a man,...and when they start on about Pharaoh Ants,.well,..they are half way to becoming,. lost souls. :yes: 

It can take over your life,..the subject is so vast, so all consuming...

When you mention trapping a genuine Black Rat from the London docklands, some tyros go all gooey eyed,....and being involved in a massive Cockroach job,..fair sets their pulses racing..

Dear Vin is well hooked on being a Pest Control Officer ...he is obsessed with bugs ! 

I've even seen his made to measure uniform,...kept in pristine condition,..hung on a hanger in the wardrobe would ya believe,...and what about that special Identity Card..

 

He thinks he is Jason fecking Bourne.... :icon_eek: 

 

You'll not see him on a rabbit warren again,..mark my words... :thumbs:
