British Pest Control Association BPCA:
The BPCA is the largest Pest Control Trade Organisation in the UK and represents mainly commercial pest control. It deals with the government on behalf of Pest Control Companies and promotes good practice from its members. There is a strict criteria to join and so called “cowboy” companies who are not qualified or have dubious work practices won’t get into the British Pest Control Association (BPCA).

British Pest Control Association (BPCA):
They vet quite thoroughly prospective members and carry out audits on existing members on a regular basis. The idea is that prospective customers know that by choosing a BPCA member they are not going to get ripped off. The work is going to be carried out by a competent trained person.

In my opinion the BPCA do a great job except the important bit for us. That is informing the general public and commercial customers. Who has heard of the BPCA? Not too many people. I know their web site is very successful and the ‘Find a Local Pest Control’ section is very successful and provides member companies with work. I would like to see national adverts (possibly television & national newspaper) informing the public of the BPCA. I also believe there is a lot of work that could be done with Local Authorities. The BPCA should be approaching the LAs to link pest control to the BPCA’s web site and the ‘Find a Local Pest Controller’. This would make life easier for the LAs and ensure that their clients get a reasonable priced efficient service. The BPCA would get more money as their fees are based on their members turnover. This would mean they could then spend more money on advertising the benefits of using a BPCA member to the general public.It would need a representative of the BPCA to sell this to the LA’s. That in my opinion is the one measure that could be taken that will make the biggest difference to the members and then to the BPCA’s finances.

Remember, when appointing a pest control company, always ask to see their current BPCA certificateFireShot Screen Capture #085 - 'BPCA-Membership-Certificate-2013-2014_pdf' - www_pestuk_com_blog_wp-content_uploads_2013_09_BPCA-Membership-Certificate-2013-2014
