Access NO Areas…

A record 19.1 million people visited London in 2017 with the British Museum being the most visited attraction in the UK for the 10th year running.

With the weaker pound, tourist attractions and museums have never been more popular and London is the magnet for tourists.

That said there are some ‘visitors’ no museum or tourist attraction wants to open their doors to; pests.

“A tourist attraction must have a proactive pest control policy in place if it is to remain open,” said Darren Moulding, Dyno-Pest Service Manager.

“This means having scheduled technician inspections, preventative proofing and, regular surveys to ensure those pests not included in the service contract, are not ‘slipping under the radar’.

“Experienced pest control teams know how important it is for museums and galleries to protect their exhibits, their staff and members of the public from unwanted pests”, says Darren. “That’s why every gallery and every museum needs a pest control policy based on prevention and monitoring with minimum reliance on chemical treatments. Museums must implement as standard what we call ‘Minimum Impact, Maximum Effect’ pest control. For example moths are a significant pest for museums. But they can be successfully controlled by means of ‘ auto-confusion™’ a modern sustainable and chemical free method of intelligent pest management. The net result of  ‘ auto- confusion™’ is a significant measurable reduction in pest moth populations.  Once achieved this is sustained through a safe, continuous and cost-effective pest management regime. The treatment protects round-the-clock from the risk of damage caused by the five common species of moth.”

“The first step is to have your building surveyed by a qualified and experienced BPCA member such as Dyno-Pest. This service is offered at no charge. It is the first step in ensuring that the pest control policy in place is as robust and effective as it can possibly be,” concludes Darren.
