Procedeedings of 2001: A Pest Odyssey , a joint conference of English Heritage, the Science Museum and the National Preservation Office (1-3 October 2001).Pests are a major cause of deterioration of collections world-wide. Beetles, moths and termites damage a wide range of materials in objects and buildings. The reactive approach of the past is no longer acceptable and many of the treatments formerly used are now illegal or undesirable. Damage to collections and buildings can be avoided by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This includes an understanding of the environment to make it less amenable to pests, monitoring and trapping to identify the pests and their whereabouts, and targeted control strategies using acceptable methods. Integrated Pest Management for Collections puts on record the key IPM principles presented at the landmark international conference 2001: A Pest Odyssey. Practical, theoretical and management aspects of IPM are covered, as well as case studies demonstrating successful techniques and the benefits of IPM. This book is therefore an essential reference for conservators, archivists, conservation consultants, curators and collections managers across the many different conservation disciplines - and a valuable guide in defining and applying a successful and cost-effective preventative conservation strategy, based on the most current thinking in integrated pest management.
