Programme.

The conference programme addresses the science and management of a wide variety of urban pests, including coverage of hygiene, structural, medical and vertebrate pests. In particular, we address the importance of emerging environments and how they are impacting on emerging pests that are both ‘old’ and ‘new’ to us. We are especially looking forward to seeing interaction between a new generation of researchers and established contributors.
