Pestex 2015 Review

Pestex 2015, the UK’s largest pest control gathering, examined the impact of new invasive pest species, new standards of practice and new methods of control.

With rapid and far reaching changes affecting the pest control industry and the legal ramifications of not being on top of these changes it is imperative that business owners not only stay on top of pest control, but also the legal side of these complex issues which arise.

It is therefore essential to use competent contractors who are qualified and keeping themselves up to date.

New Code of Best Practice For Rodent Control

The new Code of Best Practice for Rodent Control and the Safe Use of Rodenticide was launched at the show as was the new European Standard for pest control.

There are new waste requirements which have to be taken account of, and changes to the qualification for the use of certain pest control treatments essential for the control of pests such as rats.

Yellow Legged Hornets 

Householders are being warned to look out for yellow legged hornets, which are expected to arrive from France, and present a significant risk to honey bees.

The tree bumblebee comes into conflict with people as they nest in close proximity to people: in attics, bird boxes, tumble drier vents, etc. They are not aggressive, but their behaviour can be perceived as threatening.
