BASF Pest Control Solutions has again teamed up with Pest to conduct a ‘state of the nation’ survey, mapping the mood of the UK pest management industry at the beginning of 2014.

How much of your time is spent treating rats, mice, wasps, bedbugs? Where do you do your pest control? Which pests do you think are on the up and, conversely, which are on the slide? These are the sorts of simple questions we ask in the National UK Pest Management Survey run annually by BASF Pest Control Solutions and Pest magazine.

“It’s definitely not a difficult job to take part and, we’re not trying to catch you out,” explains Pest associate editor Helen Riby. “We just want to record how important each of the different types of pests are in your workload, what the split is between your commercial and domestic work and which pests are going to be important in the future. We also ask about the barriers to pest control and how important they are to you.

“And, don’t worry, if there are questions you can’t, or don’t want, to answer you can just skip ahead to the next one.”

National state of the nation picture
By taking part you will help create a national picture of the ups and downs of the UK pest management sector. All the information provided is treated as confidential and no comments will ever be attributed to individuals.

So how will it work?
“Links to the questionnaire were sent out today, Tuesday 25 February, by email. So, if you’re at the sharp-end of UK pest control and have already supplied us with your email address, you should have received an invitation to take part,” adds Helen. “Please follow the link to make the most of your chance to be heard. It should only take 10 to 15 minutes of your time.”

If the email hasn’t arrived, then please check your junk mail just in case it’s been wrongly identified as spam.

Not on our email list? You can still take part 

However, even if you’re not on our email list, you can still take part via this survey link. But please note, the survey is about the UK market and it has been designed for the people at the coal-face of pest control, along with their managers and/or business owners. So please only click on the link if you fit this description!

The fact is that the more people who take part in the survey, the more complete will be the picture it provides of our industry and the more useful the data will be to everyone involved.

Results in our special report in the May & June issue
The results will be useful to everyone in the UK pest management sector. They allow individuals to benchmark their activities and opinions and to gain a better understanding of the industry as a whole. They also help those who lobby on behalf of the pest management sector.

We hope to be able to present the findings during PPC Live in May and we will print a full review in the May & June issue of Pestmagazine.
