Pest Management: A Practical Guide

£24.99

The essential first stop for anyone wishing to implement an effective pest management programme. For those with no previous experience of pest management it presents the basics clearly and concisely, and for those with more experience it provides an easy-reference guide to good pest management practice.

All too often, pest management is a reaction to the discovery of evidence of pest activity, such as damage to objects or elements of the building. This book provides practical, safe and cost-effective advice on the prevention and control of pests. It explains what a cultural heritage organisation needs to do to protect its collections, furnishings and buildings from harm by pests, and describes some of the options for controlling infestations should they occur.

Written by David Pinniger, pest management strategy adviser for English Heritage and many major UK museums, the publication is appropriate for all cultural heritage organisations, whether small or large, specialised or general, run by volunteers or by full-time staff. It also provides students with an excellent introduction to the subject of pest management.

Pest management is also reflected in the British Standards Institute Publicly Available Specification 197: Code of Practice for Cultural Collections Management, which is published by BSI in consultation with the Collections Trust and the cultural collections community.

The title comprises seven parts: Introduction; Identifying pests; Assessing the problem; Avoiding and preventing pests; Solving pest problems; Implementing pest management; and a Pest management ‘to do list’.

Delivery: You can expect your delivery within 5-7 working days.
