Eurocido 2014 in Germany kicks-off the international spring pest control events

LinkedIn +

After the Christmas break, pest control events across Europe are about to start. Eurocido, always an excellent event and held in Dortmund, Germany, gets the ball rolling.

Eurocido – 19-20 February
Held every other year, in alternate years to PestEx, Eurocido is well worth a visit.

Organised by the German pest control association (DSV), this is the eleventh time the event has been held – meaning 22 years since it began – and each time it gets better and better.

With over 90 exhibitors, there will be a lot to see. Add to this an extensive seminar programme – with simultaneous translation into English – with presentations from leading independant experts and you will have your work cut-out to cover the event in one day. Just as well it is on for two!

The seminar programme has the feeling of looking to the future, with presentations on invasive pests which may well become our problems of the future – for example Lasius neglectus, the Asian tiger mosquito, camel spiders and pseudo scorpions.

Surprisingly, but this has always been the case, entrance is Euro 49 covering both days if tickets are bought on the door or Euro 39 if paid in advance from the Eurocido website. This makes you realise how lucky we are in the UK with our free exhibitions.

So, reserve the dates of 19 & 20 February and see you there.

ConExPest – 8-9 May
If your passport is already out, have it ready to go to Krakow in Poland in May for ConExPest. Just to confuse you, this event takes place every three years.

Organised by the Polish pest control association it is co-organised with Sdružená­ Pracovná­ká¹ Dezinfekce and Dezinsekce a Deratizace áˆeská© Republiky from the Czech Republic, Guild Profesioná¡lov DDD from Slovakia and MaKOSZ from Hungary.

11th Fumigation & Pheromones – 2-4 June 
If you miss this event you have another chance to visit the charming city of Krakow as it also plays host to the 11th Fumigation & Pheromone conference in early June.

This is the eleventh time this conference has been held and if you have an interest in stored product insects, pheromones, fumigation or working in the food industry this is the event for you.

8th International Conference or Urban Pests – 20-23 July
Talking of early bird discounts, book before the end of January to benefit from the saving being offered by the 8th International Conference or Urban Pests to be held in Zurich, Switzerland on 20-23 July.

The preliminary programme detailing not only the invited, but also the papers offered by those performing research in this area, has just been published and can be seen on the ICUP website.
