PestWorld in pictures

In our other reports from PestWorld, we have covered specific topics - the exhibition, the educational sessions and the like. But here you can see a round-up of images from the event which tries to capture its spirit. Enjoy!

First the location. For a first time visitor to Baltimore, the city came as a very pleasnt surprise - helped considerably by the lovely autumn (sorry - fall) weather we enjoyed. The other surprise was the history of the city - as Europeans we always think of the entire US as 'new', but Baltimore was founded in 1729. 

We were reminded of this history by events surounding the war of 1812 between the United States and the British. This included the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships in Baltimore harbour, which went onto to inspire the poem written by Francis Scott Key, the Star-Spangled Banner, which later became the American national anthem. Today original national flags can be spotted flying in the city.
