Rats, Traps, Bugs and Cutbacks

Rats, bedbugs, cockroaches: pests we may all have to learn to live with more in the future, according to environmental health experts. Budget cuts mean some councils are disbanding their pest control teams while others are now charging for services which had been free. Will this lead to more pests and the diseases they carry?

Panorama goes bug busting with pest controllers, and tests how easy it can be to get into the pest control business.
