Not every institution has the resources to meet all their pest prevention challenges in-house.  Cultural Institutions often contract a Pest Management Professional (PMP) to provide or supplement IPM services.  The resources here were developed by the MuseumPests Working Group to help institutions develop effective, collaborative relationships with their PMPs.

  • Cultural heritage institutions present unique challenges and difficulties for even the most experienced Pest Management Professionals (PMPs).  IPM Guide for PMPs in Museums & Galleries provides a general overview of working in a museum environment, and the challenges that cultural heritage institutions present for PMPs.
  • MuseumPest ID for PMPs provides a reference guide to pests which are commonly found in cultural heritage settings, but which may not be as frequent in other commercial settings.
