The next PestEx event is due to be held in March 2017, and people from all over the world will be attending this UK trade exhibition and conference. The British Pest Control Association holds the event once every two years in London, and everyone can attend, from exhibitors and technicians to general visitors.
This is one of the most important events for the pest control industry, allowing pest control management companies and business owners to discover how the industry can help them manage any pest problems. At the event, there will be seminars and various sessions designed to allow industry experts to present their findings, products and new research.
Some animals can be a huge pest to the agricultural industry and other businesses. Pest control management companies can help control pests and eliminate nuisance animals. It is not just man-made solutions that can act as pest control; even animals themselves can provide solutions, with bats controlling pests on corn crops, as this article from the BBC explores.
In addition to pests on crops, other animals can be a nuisance, such as birds in urban settings. Some birds, including pigeons, gulls, sparrows and starlings, can grow in numbers rapidly and become a pest due to their large number. Birds can carry diseases such as ornithosis, Listeria and E. coli. Bird droppings are acidic and can damage brickwork and paintwork, while nests can be infested with parasites, such as fleas and beetles. A good nuisance bird management company can intervene if companies or individuals are having problems with urban birds.
Working in Pest Control
Dealing with pests is a job for professionals. Pest controllers, such as www.vvenv.co.uk, will use methods such as barriers, nets and wire to remove, reduce and discourage the numbers of birds in an area. The pest control industry is growing and more people are deciding to work in this interesting industry, as the Guardian explains. There are commercial and domestic roles in the industry with a wide and varying client base and many day-to-day responsibilities.
Everyone from pest management business owners, suppliers, manufacturers and distributors to technicians and general visitors will be attending the BPCA PestEx Event in March 2017. More than 2,000 people will be there, and this event represents a great networking opportunity.
