IPCA (Indian Pest Control Association)
IPCA is not just an association of professional pest management companies, but also the only Association in India that makes technical and professional expertise a mandatory requirement for grant of membership.
IPCA has been at the forefront of publicizing the critical role that pest control companies play in the positive growth of the economy and health of the nation. For example, export, especially of agri-commodities, would not be possible without fumigation of such consignments. Pest management services are a necessity in homes, offices, schools, hotels, hospitals, factories, restaurants, etc. today.
Certification according to the latest international standards for food safety & hygiene is not possible without the highest standards of pest management. Apart from exports, the domestic market as well demands service in accordance with more stringent regulations on safety and least environmental impact.
In this scenario, it is in the interest of consumers to utilize the services of technically sound pest management professionals, who can solve their pest problems while giving prime importance to health and environmental concerns. For this, the best option is to avail the services of IPCA members who are present through the country.
