The essential first stop for anyone wishing to implement an effective pest management programme in a museum or similar organisation. For those with no previous experience of pest management it presents the basics clearly and concisely, providing 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 cultural heritage organisations of all types and sizes, whether run by volunteers or full-time staff. It also provides students with an excellent introduction to the subject of pest management.

The book includes: 

  • Introduction
  • Identifying pests
  • Assessing the problem
  • Avoiding and preventing pests
  • Solving pest problems
  • Implementing pest management
  • Pest management ‘to-do list’
