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.
The Pestcides Forum 2015 report provides an overview of where, why and how pesticides are used and the impacts of this use. Although coverage is primarily of the agricultural sector, it warrants attention as it clearly illustrates the very similar path trod by the professional pest control industry. Such similar interests include training, certification, usage (including illegal use), packaging and waste.

Published jointly by the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association (AEPMA) and the Institute for Clinical Pathology & Medical Research (ICPMR), this 92-page document builds on the three previous version, the first of which goes back to July 2006. The aim of the Code of Practice is to define best practice and outcomes that encompass an integrated pest management approach to the eradication of active bed bug infestations and the management of potential infestations through broad industry consultation. It is a guide for pest managers, the accommodation industry, service industries and professions and the general public on best practice and the prevention of possible future infestations. The expected outcome from adherence to the Code would be to minimise the impact of bed bug infestations wherever they occur.
