Consultations are provided as needed or requested by the client to assess specific pest problems. The terms of the consultation, duration, and work to be provided are determined on an individual basis as is most appropriate for the specific circumstance.
For example, Pest Diagnostics might be contracted to consult on mysterious damage which is found in a specific fruit orchard which is baffling the grower. Pest Diagnostics can travel to the farm, investigate the situation, take samples, advise on the cause of the problem, methods for preventing recurrence of the problem in future and bill accordingly. In this circumstance, Pest Diagnostics will most likely invoice for personnel time, travel costs and equipment. If any trials are required to be run in the laboratory this will be included in consultation costs (for example, isolating the suspected pest together with the fruit in order to determine if it does, indeed, cause such damage).
