The Pest Odyssey UK group is a non profit organisation, advocating for IPM within cultural heritage institutions.

Our mission is to provide a trusted platform to communicate, advise and promote best practise in Integrated Pest Management for cultural heritage. This multi-disciplinary group will provide expertise in reducing pest risk thus protecting valuable collections. We will advocate the use of IPM as an essential cost effective and sustainable tool to serve the cultural heritage industry, creating collaborative networks and sharing relevant information.

This website has been set up to allow all those interested in the Integrated Pest Management field to collaborate, share and disseminate  professional knowledge and expertise in order to prevent pest damage to cultural and scientific collections.

Pest Odyssey UK will be holding our next annual meeting on 4th July 2018 in Oxford at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Rd, Oxford, OX1 3PW.

Come along for a morning of talks on various aspects of IPM and an afternoon of workshops looking at insect pest and repining insects.

Plus the all-important opportunity to talk to like-minded IPM colleagues.

PLUS a bug swap-  bring along spares from your collection to swap for missing insects. These should be in good condition and ideally complete.

The day is free, but workshops must be booked- please sign up on the day for these.

The day starts at 10am with coffee and talks begin at 11am

Workshops will run from 2-4pm

Please note, lunch is not provided.

No need to resigner, just come along!
