17th National Urban Pest Control Week

Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation Nos. 990 dated April 15, 1997 and 2063 dated May 19, 2010, the National Committee on Urban Pest Control (NCUPC) will celebrate the 17th National Urban Pest Control Week with the theme Observance of Zero Waste and Zero Pest Laws in Food Establishments, Urban and Agricultural Areas Means Strong Nation on September 23-29, 2013. The celebration is part of the "Clean Up the World Month” of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

In this connection, the Urban Pest Management, Food Safety and Quality Conference and Exhibition will be held on September 27-29, 2013 at the SM City G/F and Carpark Door 5, Materso Avenue, corner Gran via St., Brgy. Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City. This activity will be culminated with a Sunday mission (Free anti-dengue simultaneous spraying in selected slum areas in Manila) on September 29, 2013.

The Conference aims to:
  1. promote self-reliance and sustainability in the local urban pest control industry to prevent importation which would lead to a strong Filipino nation;
  2. update the participants on the different winning green technologies which are locally available but proven effective against common urban pests and disease outbreaks; and
  3. share with them the importance of alternative fuels recycled from organic wastes for use in the food industry, urban and agricultural areas.
