British Pest Management Manual (BPM)

British Pest Management Manual

"RSPH believes that the British Pest Management Manual is a valuable text for anyone undertaking the RSPH/BPCA Level 2 Award and Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management, and is an ideal resource for the professional pest controller."



The BPM Manual is an extensive reference manual for the management of pests in the UK, and is regarded as the key reference manual for the British pest control industry. The manual was prepared in collaboration with the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), and was originally known as the LGTB and ADAS manual.


Why do I need the BPM Manual

The level of expertise of pest control technicians has changed over the years, and whilst the basic skills such as the recognition of animal signs still need to be learned and developed, there is a requirement to be technically competent in legislation, pesticide use, resistance to pesticides and health and safety issues.

The responsibility that goes with the use of pesticides is considerable and the need to protect the environment forms an increasingly important part of the pest technicians' duties. As well as being an essential tool for the basic training of pest control technicians, the manual can also be used effectively for refresher training and by supervisory staff and others for reference purposes. It should be used as an everyday reference manual, and should not replace undertaking formal qualifications.
