I am Robert Birt and I own RBB Environmental & Pest Control. I have had a lifetime

involvement in wildlife management and pest control.

My life experiences and career reflect my background and strong work ethic.

I started my working life as a Regular Soldier in the British Army. After five years I left the Army

and travelled to Australia. On returning to the UK, I took up various jobs before deciding to

become a full time student in Agricultural College at Merrist Wood in Surrey where I achieved a

National Certificate in Habitat Management.

After college I got a job as a Wildlife Ranger with the Forestry Commission first in South East

England then in Kielder Forest District. After 5 years with the Commission I was offered a job

working in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania, East Africa. I returned to the UK 9 months

later when I was mobilised back to the army for operational duties as a serving member of the

Territorial Army. I stayed in the Regular Army for the next seven years in which time I was a

member of the Defence Deer Management group. On leaving the Army in 2012 I became a

qualified pest control technician with a company and then worked my way to a pest control

surveyor. After gaining a good working knowledge of the pest control industry and with my

Wildlife Ranger background I decided to start my own Environmental Management and Pest

Control business and have never looked back since!

I have attended numerous training courses and lessons in all aspects of environmental issues,

wildlife management and pest control over the years and here is a list of some of the

qualifications that I have attained:-

RSPH (BPCA) level 2 in Pest Management,

National Certificate Countryside Related Studies in Habitat Management (Distinction),

Deer Stalking Certificates Level 1 & 2,

I am a Deer Management Qualification Level 2 Approved Witness,

NPTC in chainsaw operations levels 10,11 & 16,
