World Pest Awareness Day

June 6, 2017 has been declared World Pest Awareness Day. The purpose of this initiative jointly organised by CPCA, FAOPMA, NPMA and CEPA is to create awareness with citizens all over the world for the manner in which professional pest managers provide protection for their food, their home, their family, the environment in which they live and their businesses and prevent public health risks.

CEPA recommends that its members support this action because it offers a major opportunity to project a positive image of our industry vis-à-vis the general public as well as regulatory and horizontal stakeholders both in Europe and on the international stage.

Here are some simple ideas that you could consider: a basic press release, a more elaborate press conference, seminars, workshops, company site visits, live demonstrations etc. You will surely find something creative and interesting that sparks curiosity!

If you want to get involved please express your interest by sending an e-mail to CEPA to register your initiative and present a summary of the activity that you are planning (

A standard that creates awareness for the value to Society that Pest Management represents. Testimonials from CEPA Certified companies and from industry.
