Library

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.

Rat Land Rat Land
This report, produced by London Assembly member Susan Hall, concludes that London's rodent problem is on the rise. Using freedom of information requests, all 32 London boroughs were asked how many rodent complaints had been reported to them over the past five years. The report goes on to look at the possible consequences for local authorities who do not address the problem, as well as exploring what other cities have done about similar issues in Europe.
 
BPCA: National Survey of Local Authorities 2016 BPCA: National Survey of Local Authorities 2016
This is the fourth survey of local authority pest control undertaken by the British Pest Control Association (BPCA). Using a Freedom of Information request all but 26 of the 390 district, borough and unitary authorities in the UK replied. The resulting 51-page report provides a wealth of information about public sector pest control. Of course, this is only part of the story. Similar data for the private sector is unfortunately not available.
 
CIEH: Environmental health workforce survey 2014/15 CIEH: Environmental health workforce survey 2014/15
During 2014, CIEH conducted a comprehensive 20-page survey of EHOs working for local authorities across the UK, asking them for their thoughts on what has happened to the profession over the past few years and what they see for the future. The survey found that the average budget for environmental health services, such as pest control and food hygiene inspections, has fallen by 6.8% in real terms between 2013-14 and 2014-15 and almost half of the respondents (47.4%) said that current resources were only just adequate to provide a basic statutory service. The survey identified pest control as the most frequently cited service likely to be axed over the next three years.
