Pest-Related Diseases Report Spurs PGM & SON Pest Control to Advocate for Enhanced Collaboration Between Pest Professionals and Public Health Bodies.


In response to the recent update from the BPCA, we at PGM & SON Pest Control, an award-winning company in Herefordshire, find ourselves echoing the call for closer links between pest professionals and public health bodies. The urgency of this collaboration has been underscored by the UK Health Security Agency's report on animal-associated infections.


Having meticulously assessed the impact of pest management on Lyme disease and leptospirosis in England during Q3 2023, we stress the critical importance of public health agencies recognising and valuing the indispensable role played by pest professionals.


Our commitment to excellence in pest control aligns with the broader goal of safeguarding public health, and we believe that a harmonious partnership between our industry and public health authorities is essential for addressing the challenges highlighted in the report.


As an award-winning pest control company in Herefordshire, PGM & SON remains dedicated to staying at the forefront of pest management practices.

Together, let us build a resilient and initiative-taking defence against the threats posed by pest-related diseases, forging a path towards a healthier and safer future for all.


The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) has issued a compelling call for strengthened collaboration between pest professionals and public health bodies, prompted by the UK Health Security Agency's report on animal-associated infections in England (December 2023).




PGM & SON Pest Control Advocates Collaborative Action for Public Health in the Wake of BPCA's Zoonotic Diseases Report


BPCA's thorough assessment of the impact of pest management on Lyme disease and leptospirosis during Q3 2023 highlights a pressing need for public health agencies to acknowledge and appreciate the indispensable work carried out by pest professionals.


The urgency of this collaboration is underscored by the potentially life-threatening nature of zoonotic diseases, which are transmitted from animals to humans, often through direct contact.


BPCA urges public health agencies to value and incorporate the expertise of pest management professionals in their initiatives.

Pests such as rats, mice, birds, and ticks have been identified as carriers of these zoonotic diseases in the UK. The BPCA's findings shed light on the critical role that pest management plays in mitigating the risks associated with these diseases, emphasising the need for a united front in addressing these challenges.


As an award-winning company in Herefordshire, PGM & SON Pest Control recognises the gravity of the situation and shares the BPCA's commitment to fostering a closer alliance between our industry and public health bodies. We understand the significant impact that pests can have on public health, and we are dedicated to contributing our expertise to the collaborative efforts aimed at prevention and control.


In the face of these findings, it is imperative that public health agencies recognise the essential work carried out by pest professionals in safeguarding communities from the threats posed by zoonotic diseases.


Vital plea for collaboration between pest management and public health.

PGM & SON Pest Control stands ready to actively participate in this collaborative endeavour, reinforcing our shared responsibility for the well-being of the local population.


Together, let us forge a robust alliance, combining our strengths to create a comprehensive strategy that not only addresses the immediate concerns highlighted by the BPCA but also lays the groundwork for a resilient and proactive approach to pest-related public health challenges in the future.
