Pest Odyssey IPM Network

The Icon Pest Odyssey IPM Network is a multi-disciplinary group which advocates for IPM within cultural heritage institutions

Pest Odyssey UK is a non-profit group which is open to all and is made up of  anyone with an interest in protecting our collections from pest damage. We advocate the use of IPM as an essential cost effective and sustainable tool to serve the Cultural Heritage Industry creating collaborative networks which will allow us to share useful information about IPM across the heritage sector. The Pest Odyssey UK website allows all those interested in the field of Integrated Pest Management to collaborate, share and disseminate professional knowledge and experience in order to prevent pest damage to cultural and scientific collections
