The New Zealand Biosecurity Institute National Education and Technology Seminar (NETS) will be held at the Wairakei Resort Hotel 18th - 20th July 2012.

A pest controller walks into an antique store spies a large brass rat. He falls in love with it, and so he takes it to the counter.
"Interested in the rat, eh?" says the cashier.
"Um, yes ... how much?" asks the customer.
"Well, five dollars for the rat--but 200 dollars for the story that goes with it" he replied.
"I'll just take the rat, without the story." Says the customer.
He leaves the store, his precious brass rat tucked under his arm. After a while he notices that a few rats are following him. He walks a few more steps and the number of rats behind him increased. This continued, until there were virtually thousands of rats following him.
Afraid, the man runs to the sea and throws the rat in. All of the rats plunged in after it, and met their watery deaths.
The man runs back to the antique store. The cashier was still chuckling to himself. "So now do you want the story?"
"No," said the man, "but have you got any brass lawyers?"
