British Pest Control Association
At Trust A Trader, we are committed to helping our customers to find local traders that they can rely on. In order to be listed in our online directory, traders must demonstrate that they are appropriately qualified and insured, and that they meet high standards of service. To support this, we encourage all of the traders listed on Trust A Trader to become qualified and accredited by appropriate professional bodies, such as the British Pest Control Association (the BPCA).
The inception of the British Pest Control Association took place in 1942, when a meeting was called to discuss the possibility of forming an Industrial Pest Control Association. The name was changed in 1969 to the British Pest Control Association; today the BPCA is the UK’s leading trade association for pest control, with nearly 1,000 members and 6,000 affiliates. The role of the BPCA is to educate people and organisations of the risks presented by inadequate pest control. They help people to find pest control services that they can trust and provide commercial and residential advice on pest identification and eradication.
British Pest Control Association members follow a code of Best Practice specified by the Association and operate to a high standard, in line with legislation, so customers know that their pest control issue is being dealt with safely and effectively.
