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.

“Just to thank the team at the NPTA, earlier this year a company in Crewe was looking for Field biologist advice, you very kindly gave them my name; this has since lead to a contract that I now manage so thanks for that! Also having got involved in School work you helped me in getting CRB checked. The NPTA team of people are always very helpful and you do get that feeling that you run the organisation to help the members this came across when chatting to you all last week at Pest Tech. Once again thanks to all involved. ”
