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 […]

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.
