Pest Network

Most insect pests like dark, undisturbed spaces so one of the consequences of lockdown has been an increase in insect pest activity.  In response to this, MDEM have launched  a Pest Network for the region.

Network members have access to a wide range of support. They agree to monitor pest activity in their sites and are given advice on how to undertake identification and treatment. 

You can sign up to join the network below, or contact network facilitator Anita Hollinshead for further information.

The Pest Network programme will include:

  • A series of bite-sized workshops on pest specific topics.
  • 12 grants of up to £500 for equipment, publications and materials to help museums with pest monitoring, identification, treatment and effective housekeeping.
  • Two network meetings a year – an opportunity to share experiences and hear about case studies from within and outside the region.
  • The offer of a mini pest session at county forum meetings this spring/ summer

How to join the network

The network is free to join and open to all museum staff and volunteers in the region. To join the network please enter your details below.
