Today marks the second World Pest Day!

World Pest Day was created to build awareness around the importance of pest control to protect food, homes, families, lives and businesses. The day begins in Portugal this year in conjunction with the Global Summit of Pest Management Services for Public Health and Food Safety with support from CPCA, along with The Confederation of European Pest Management Associations (CEPA), FAOPMA (Australasia) and NPMA (USA).

Every day, pest control professionals are working to protect people and properties from the potential diseases and damage caused by pests. World Pest Day is an opportunity to reflect on the variety of pests that can affect us, and to help raise awareness of the possible health risks associated with pests such as rodents, mosquitoes and flies.
