Pest is pleased to launch the 2017 National UK Pest Management Survey. Email invitations to readers at the sharp end of pest control were issued this afternoon but, if you didn’t receive the email, you can still take part by following the link in this web story.

Please take part in the National UK Pest Management Survey 2017

The annual ‘state of the nation’ survey, got underway today, Monday 6 March. Now in its seventh year it’s your chance, as a pest professional at the sharp end, to tell the rest of the industry what you think! But what do we mean by the sharp end?

We need your help if you are: 

  • An owner, manager, technician, surveyor or field biologist in a pest management company;
  • A member of a local authority pest control unit;
  • A self-employed pest controller.

If that describes your role, then check your inbox for an email from the editor at Pest magazine. This will contain your personal invitation to take part.

However, if that invitation went astray, maybe it ended-up in junk, or has simply got buried in your inbox, don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to take part by following this link or clicking on the mood of the industry logo on the right. You have until midnight on Friday 31 March to complete it.

We can’t deliver really useful results unless pest professionals take part. The more people who join in, the more complete the picture it provides and the more useful the data is to everyone.

Pest controllers are a resilient bunch

Ever since the survey began we have found that pest professionals have, by and large, shown themselves to be a very resilient bunch. 2017 however has kicked off with some of the the biggest clouds yet on the horizon. What will Brexit mean for professional pest control? What surprises does the Trump presidency have in store? What impact is rodenticide stewardship having now that it is finally with us?

Only one of its kind

This survey is the only one of its kind in the UK. It records the fortunes of all sectors within UK professional pest management. It measures whether things are getting better, or worse, and provides a picture of which pests are thought to be on the up and which are down.
