Conflict Honey Bees Nesting in Urban Dwellings
This course follows on from the introduction training Conflict Bees in Urban Dwellings and is
designed to teach pest controllers how to become approved and competent in live honey bee
removal techniques using the Trap Out method of removal from cavity walls and voids. This
method works without causing any harm to the bees in a way that keeps the colony alive,
sustainable and viable.

Geocaching is the world’s largest treasure hunt, all around us are hidden containers known as
caches. Each cache has been deliberately hidden by someone and they can only be found by using
a unique set of co-ordinates.
The caches are located by using satellites orbiting the earth (geo), hence the name geocaching.
Some caches have only a log book to sign others contain tradeable items or if you are lucky you
can find items that can be tracked at home on your PC by satellite’s on their journey around the
The game is played by millions of people worldwide and it is free and easy to play, all you need is
a Global Positioning System device (GPS) such as a modern smart phone or a dedicated GPS
receiver (not a sat-nav) the location of the caches and you are good to go, but remember the
caches have been deliberately hidden and even with the correct co-ordinates they are not always
that easy to find.
This accredited rural skills training course has been written to help you understand how to get the
most out of this fun and free global outdoor game by teaching you the history of geocaching and
how to locate different types of treasure, from geocoins, trackables, hard to find micro caches,
puzzle caches to earth and science caches. You will also learn how to build your own cache, get
ideas on where to hide it safely and how to submit its co-ordinates for other Geocachers to find.
The course is delivered over one day and is split between a morning inside being taught about
geocaching to enable you to get most enjoyment possible from this fun addictive and rewarding
hobby. Your afternoon is spent outside under your own supervision in the open air finding and
recording your first geocaches.
