The protection of public health is at the core of the Environmental Health profession and effective pest control is an essential element in ensuring good public health within the communities in which we live. We are all aware of the issues associated with the “traditional pests” such as rats and mice, but due to recent changes in climate, travel and living preferences, different pests are now presenting public health concerns. In response to this, the REHIS Southern Centre has arranged a lunch time seminar on this issue which will focus on the rise of bed bugs and cockroaches within inner city environments.
This event is aimed at EHO/non EHO members and other professionals/Technical Officers who wish to keep up to date with ongoing environmental health issues. See the attached flyer for more information.
