New guide highlights the maintenance cycle approach to effective pest control

A national trade body has developed a free guide for facilities managers highlighting the value of an effective maintenance cycle to be protected professionally in pest control.
The free guide, produced by the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), sets out the significant role effective pest control offers in terms of public health, the environment and the upholding of a positive reputation.
It features a wide-range of information including a calendar of pest problems, information on the most common species in the UK and procurement advice.
The guide, which works alongside BPCA’s already popular A to Z of pests digital tool, also includes insight from representatives from Peabody, Shepway District Council and The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH).
Dee Ward-Thompson, BPCA Technical Manager, said: “Effective pest control touches on the vital elements of an FM’s operations, including health and safety, the environment and corporate reputation.
“The most effective method to ensure protection and compliance is to introduce a maintenance cycle programme, with regular, targeted activity undertaken by a professional such as a BPCA member.
“This activity slots into an organisation’s scheduled operations to offer value and peace of mind.
“A large part of pest prevention is thinking ahead and identifying potential causes and entry points before infestations occur.
“Through the development of a routine maintenance cycle programme, a complete picture of effective preventative controls can be built, and relevant actions introduced.
“This will include inspecting premises on a routine basis and reporting on the status of pest infestation, organising and undertaking a programme of treatments, as well as using pest control equipment or chemicals to control and eliminate target pests.”
