The National Pest Awards are back for 2024 and the deadline for entries has been extended until Friday, June 7.

The National Pest Awards remain the centrepiece of the pest industry calendar, recognising those who have excelled in pest control across the UK.

This year’s National Pest Awards – which are run in association with the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), the National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA), and BASIS PROMPT – will culminate in a gala awards ceremony and dinner in London on Wednesday, September 11.

Finalists will receive a pair of tickets to attend the ceremony.

The event will feature a drinks reception followed by a gala dinner and awards. There will also be a celebrity host and after-dinner entertainment.

The awards are free to enter and there are 11 categories.

The main award, Pest Business of the Year, is once again sponsored by principal sponsor Syngenta Professional Pest Management. The winner of this category will be chosen from the winners of the Large Company, Small Company, Local Authority and Sole Trader of the Year.

Sarah Hughes, business manager of Syngenta Professional Pest Management, said: “We understand the key work that pest controllers do, whether they’re a small, one- or two-person operator, up to major multi-national companies – it’s a bit like the fifth emergency service, with many unsung heroes working in the industry. It’s frightening to imagine what the world would be like without pest controllers.”

This year’s National Pest Award features a new category: Diversity & Inclusion Award, sponsored by Syngenta Professional Pest Management.

Ms Hughes said: “This new award is a really positive thing for the industry.”

A new sponsor for 2024 is insurance broker Cliverton, which is sponsoring the popular Unsung Hero of the Year category.

Lynne Fisher, associate director of Cliverton, said: “We have chosen to sponsor the Unsung Hero category, which highlights a special individual who delivers the best customer service or always goes the extra mile in their role.”
