Pest Odyssey 2011 Conference proceedings published

14th December 2011

Learn about Exosex CLTab at English Heritage and Hampton Court Palace.

Winchester, UK - Intelligent Pest Management Company, Exosect, is delighted to announce that the proceedings of the Pest Odyssey Conference 2011 are now available.

The event was hosted by the British Museum and organised by Icon's Care of Collections Group in partnership with the British Museum and a wide range of other institutions, including English Heritage, The British Museum, the Natural History Museum, Historic Royal Palaces, The V & A, the Museum of London, the Horniman Museum and The Tate.

The conference looked at how Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has developed over the past ten years to deal with the increasing threat pest attacks pose to collections and buildings.

At the conference, conservators and industry experts including David Pinniger and Tom Strang shared new understandings about pest species and the risks they pose.  Experiences of specialised methods which have been developed to combat pests and save irreplaceable artefacts were presented, such as the British invention called Exosex CLTab, a pheromone mating disruption tool which confuses the mating cycle of the common clothes moth. Both English Heritage and Hampton Court Palace presented their conservation work with Exosex CLTab.
