About Owl Pest Control
Owl Pest Control was founded in 1998 by two postgraduate students in UCD, with the view to provide an innovative approach to pest control. They developed a service which considers three aspects: meeting our clients/auditors' expectations, reduce unnecessary killing/suffering of pests, and minimise the impact on the environment.
Mr Christophe Izart participated in the foundation of the Irish Pest Control Association in 2002, which introduced the first professional Pest Control courses and diploma in Ireland. He served in the Association as Honorary Treasurer for over 5 years, and was also a Board Member of the Irish Pest Control Skillnet Project which implemented the Diploma in Environmental Pest Management at Cork University.
Christophe is currently Chairman of the Irish branch of the National Pest Technicians' Association since 2016 and Member the Pest Management Working Group and CRRU Ireland Task Force at the Department of Agriculture (DAFM) - Pesticides Registration and Control Division.
Today our activities aim towards the following objectives:
- To provide cost-effective solutions, i.e. minimising the need for pest control treatment and callouts by developing intensive knowledge of pest strategies/behaviour. This put the focus primarily on proofing buildings to prevent pest intrusion; eliminating pest access to sources of food & water; and reducing pest harbourage opportunities.Owl Pest Control Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Owl Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Strategy
