As early as I could remember, I always had a liking for outdoor activities. I recalled days spent wading through rivers for a cool bath, enduring the pain from ant bites to start an ant farm and â€œscientificâ€ expeditions to map the forest. I believe it is this interest that ignited my passion in biology; a field I chose to start off my career. Being a field biologist in Rentokil is very much like practicing the dark arts of biology; using life science to bring â€œbalanceâ€ to pest populations. Though it may sound grim, without managing pests, the rats and cockroaches in the world would run riot causing untold damage. Remember the plague? In short, a pest control professionalâ€™s job can easily be summed up by the words of Jay in the movie Men in Black; â€œWe are the last line of defense of mankind against the scum (in our case, creepy-crawlies) of the universe.â€ I am honored to be among those serving in that line.
