A great deal of useful information comes into the Pest office or is found when we are out and about! We frequently post news stories about relevant books, leaflets, apps and other resources. But, finding this information, when it's needed and, quickly, at a later date can be difficult. That's why we've created this library for pest professionals. It's where we file all the useful stuff we come across and it's all searchable.

CIEH Rat and Mouse Control Procedures Manual CIEH Rat and Mouse Control Procedures Manual
It is ten years since the Rat and Mouse Control Procedures Manual was first published by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health's (CIEH) National Pest Advisory Panel (NPAP) and a great deal has changed over that time. The newly updated version is now divided into two sections, Section 1 covering 'Methods applicable to rat and mouse activity in and around property'. This, as might be expected follows the CRRU Code very closely, looking at the range of control options available and how they fit into the risk hierarchy. Section 2 offers 'Advice on specific treatment scenarios', taking potential control exercises through from start to finish. There is also guidance on 'permanent' and 'long term' baiting.
CEPA Annual Report 2017-18 CEPA Annual Report 2017-18
The Confederation of European Pest Management Associations, CEPA, has published its first annual report since the change in secretariat. Readers may recall that from1 January 2018 Darwin Associates took charge. The report explains why four priorities underpinned CEPA`s activities in 2018 and why these will continue to dominate. They are: healthy cities, SMEs (Small & Medium Enterprises), sustainability and Europe’s citizens. Whilst the report does tend to be in Eurospeak it is worth a read as how the industry is perceived in the corridors of power in the EU will impact our sector immensely.
