Creating refuges for wildlife around fields is not uncommon in the UK and around the world but for these strips to be of value they need a diversity of plant species growing in them. Apparently, they are all too often overrun by the “wrong type” of weed and especially less beneficial grasses. The glyphosate story […]

We don’t get many articles on animal health so it’s good to start this issue with news of an infectious diseases surveillance program in sub-Saharan Africa which aims to build a database of animal parasites covering six countries. Tea plantations are the subject of a project to spread sustainable pest control without the need for […]

Crystal ball gazing is the theme for this issue, the last of our 60th year. We haven’t asked our writers to look 60 years into the future – 2078 is just too far ahead although I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t have to listen to anyone telling me what we got wrong! Professor Graham Matthews is […]

The theme of this issue is integrated pest management (IPM), a term that seems to have been around for many years but which, in practice, seemed to struggle to escape from the glasshouse. IPM was never about abandoning agrochemicals, more about using them when needed as part of a wider control strategy and with the […]

With the FAOPMA Pest Summit in September and NPMA PestWorld in October it was inevitable that this issue is focused on pest control. On a recent holiday to the Western Isles of Scotland I was struck by the large populations of ground nesting birds on the rodent-free and unpopulated (with humans) smaller islands we visited. […]

This is my first issue in the role of editor and I have to say it has been an exciting experience! After five years of successfully editing IPC and keeping it relevant to the industry David had to handover the editorship earlier than expected. The whole team at the magazine appreciate his efforts over the […]

Some months we have so many articles submitted to us, it is difficult decide what to include and what to postpone to our next issue. This was such a month and was one of the contributory reasons for the delay in getting this issue out to you. It is not surprising, as the special feature […]

Welcome to 2018. This year, International Pest Control magazine is celebrating 60 years in print. It is an honour to be responsible for editing a publication that was first produced before I was born and that I remember reading as a student. In December, I was pleased to have overseen my 30th issue and ‘celebrated’ […]

Our strapline at International Pest Control magazine is ‘because pests recognise no national boundaries’ and never has a phrase been so relevant when considering invasive pests. An invasive species is an organism that is not native to a specific location and that has a tendency to spread to a degree to cause damage to the […]
