Giving Pests the Flick
SkillsOne meets Gary Stephenson, from Flick Pest Control.
We find out about the pest control industry, opportunities within it for young people and what a typical day involves as he inspects a typical Australian home for termites and timber pests.
We follow him on inspection of one property and learn just what makes houses more vulnerable to pests.
Gary is the National Technical Manager at ISS. He had his own Pest Control Company for years that was bought by ISS/Flick in 2003.
He stayed on with the company for a while and was then integrated into the ISS Flick company as their Technical/Operations Manager. He looks after Operations, Training and Technical Issues.
