About the NPTA
The National Pest Technicians Association is an organisation run by pest control technicians, for the benefit of other pest control technicians - and their customers.
- We help potential customers of pest control services find properly trained and insured pest controllers near them.
- We audit Members wishing to become part of our elite 'Accredited Member' category, for those customers looking for the highest class of service.
- We work with other similar organisations, such as the BPCA and the CIEH, to try to influence Government thinking on key issues affecting the industry.
- We work with UK Government Departments and other NGOs whose work affects the pest control industry, as well as international pest control organisations.
- We work with all the major manufacturers of pest control products, helping them keep our Members informed of the latest advances in pest control technology.
- We endeavour to keep our Members informed of changes in the industry through our quarterly magazines 'Today's Technician' and through this website.
- We are available to our Members for advice and help on technical, business and administration issues.
- We run many training and social events around the country, including the immensely popular annual 'PestTech' conference and exhibition.
