World Pest Day or World Pest Awareness Day is celebrated every year on June 6. This day is dedicated to spread awareness about pest management and its benefits to maintain the quality of life of not only people but also trees and plants.
Experts from all over the world share their views on this issue in events organised on this day.
World Pest Day was first observed in 2017, at an inaugural ceremony held at the Beijing Hotel on June 6, 2017. The Chinese Pest Control Association had initiated the event. It was co-sponsored by the Association of Asian and Oceania Pest Managers, the National Pest Management Association and the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations.
