Pest Identification Poster

Insect Pests Found in Historic Houses: A poster illustrating a selection of insect pests most commonly found in historic houses and museums in the UK.

To best identify the pests it is recommended that you order a hard copy of the poster from English Heritage Customer Services (or 0370 333 1181) quoting reference number 52010. If the poster is downloaded and printed in A4 or A3 size, the insects will not be to scale.
