A photo roundup of ICUP held in Birmingham

LinkedIn +

At Pest magazine we were lucky enough to be at the recent International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) held At Aston University, Birmingham from start to finish – 9 to 12 July 2017. In addition to the web stories posted, here we include a number of further photographs which capture the spirit of these four days.
In addition to our over-view report of ICUP 2017, the bed bug workshop and the call in the UK for new standards for rat, mice and mole traps which was the subject of one of the presentations, look out for further coverage in Pest 52: August & September 2017.
