Episode 6- Norman Guiver
Martin sits down with bee genius Norman Guiver. Norman finds himself perfectly placed to align new tech with pest control, crime fighting and beekeeping.
His background in technology has come together to create some revolutionary software which can, among other things, organise the collection and saving of bee swarms, ensure honey traceability in Africa and remotely monitor unmanned properties.
Quite the renaissance man.

Episode 5 - Nik Gray from actionCoach. How coaching can change your business
A brief jibber jabber with Nik Gray from ActionCoach. We talk about how coaching can help pest control companies and just generally help with life in general!
Nik is a fantastic chap and you can find him at www.nikgray.actioncoach.co.uk
Episode 3- Alex Wade of Wade Environmental
The incredibly geeky Alex Wade joins me for a jibber jabber about the state of the world of pest control.
We talk about Alex's new consultancy company and how he offers his giant technical brain for technical inspections on audited sites.
We also get into the new launch of calciferol and get mildly technical about how new actives come to market.
There are laughs, there are tears, there are obscure chats about mushrooms and Cromwell, but it always comes back to the subject we love best. Proper geeky pest control.
Episode 1 feat. Laurence Barnard of Killgerm Chemicals
Welcome to Dealey Pest Academy Podcast! Our first guest is Laurence Barnard, of Killgerm Chemicals.
In this episode, we talk about:
- Professional pest control products versus amateur
- Misuse of pest control products and their effect on pets and humans
- Warning labels on pest control products and their importance
- Pest control magazines
- Laurence's recommended fictional books, films and a little bit of his personal life
Laurence also talks about an inspiring story of how he overcame and conquered all odds as a husband and father, when his wife was diagnosed with cancer, years ago. He has then used this experience to educate people, be inspired and work harder in the field of pest control.
"I don't know anyone who genuinely loves their job as much as pest controllers do. And that's across the whole spectrum as well. You know, that's what my job is, working for suppliers and helping people in sales, part of my job. Even people that work in offices for pest control... it’s a strange base, really. And I don't think I’d want to be anywhere else"
