World Pest Day - 06 June.

Every June 6 is World Pest Day or sometimes called World Pest Awareness Day. The day was created to raise awareness of how pest management helps preserve the quality of life for you and your loved ones.

It’s estimated 900-million insects types can be pests. They fall into four different categories based on body types: 1. beetles; 2. flies; 3. moths and butterflies; and 4. ants, bees and wasps.

As far back as 2500 BC, people used sulfur compounds to control mites and insects.

In 1200 B.C., the Chinese deployed predatory ants against pests such as beetles and caterpillars.

The inaugural World Pest Day ceremony was held at the Beijing Hotel on June 6th, 2017.

World Pest Day was initiated by the Chinese Pest Control Association, and co-sponsored by the Federation of Asian and Oceania Pest Managers’ Association, the National Pest Management Association, and the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations.
