Mr. Patrick Legey,
Leading dignitary of Australian Environment Pest managers Association and also Technical Director of Austra Pest, one of the Senior Most Company in Australia.
Mr. Jaldhi Trivedi,
CEO, Elite Corporation

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Patrick and his team for the warm welcome and sharing of knowledge. We had a healthy interaction about the rules and regulations, membership requirements and protocol to be followed by AEPMA members this was an eye opener to me with regards to the technical advances in Australia, legislation and their concern for the safety of the environment, the customer and the PCO. I have pleasure to share with you a few photographs that will give you an idea of what to expect in the future for pest managers in India.

The van usually carries MSDS sheets, first aid box and container of water for dilution of insecticide and cleaning up for the technicians.

Above image shows Mr. Connor Brazil applying bait into bait station near the wooden fence. Using the baiting system assures us protection against invading termites. It is less toxic than salt and is safe for humans, pets and the environment.

We must now urge our pesticide manufacturers to register such insecticides in India to protect the environment for the next generation.
