On Thursday 26th May, Killgerm Ireland hosted its first workshop event in the Republic of Ireland. The Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise, was the venue for the event which was attended by many pest controllers from the area.

    The workshop included talks from key experts in the pest control industry and breakfast for all attendees. Sharon Hughes, BASF’s Global Technical Manager, gave a talk on the active ingredient cholecalciferol. Maike Shmitz, International Sales Manager for PestWest Electronics, presented a talk on the future of fly control.

    Representatives from Killgerm group also spoke at the event. Dr Matthew Davies, Head of Technical at Killgerm UK, gave an interactive presentation on insect identification. Graham Bingham, one of Killgerm UK’s Area Sales managers, presented on the latest pest control industry updates and new products.

    It is an important and exciting step forward for Killgerm Ireland to host its own events. Porsia Schofield, Operations manager for Killgerm Ireland, said; “We would like to thank everyone who attended the event, it was a great success. A special thank you to our speakers on the day Sharon Hughes, Maike Schmitz, Dr. Matthew Davies and Graham Bingham”.

    “We feel that it is an exciting time for us and the industry and look forward to seeing you all at more events in the near future”

    This comes at an exciting time, as Killgerm Ireland is also launching its first product catalogue, available to all customers.
