Pest Eradication Treatment for Mixed Media Objects

Ashley Bowersox
In support of my master's thesis in Preventive Conservation at Northumbria University, I am soliciting responses to a survey.

The survey is open to anyone with experience in treating art or heritage objects for pest infestations. For this research project, the experiences of people who have previously or currently treat mixed media or composite objects are of particular interest.

This survey investigates external factors that might influence pest treatment choices. Factors such as; access to literature, access or availability to different treatment methods, government regulations, and budgetary or resource constraints. Your answers will inform the development of a decision-making tool for evaluating material compatibility in mixed media objects with common pest eradication treatment methods.

Results of the research will be published. Participants will not be identified in any report or publication.

The survey takes between 5-10 minutes to complete and the deadline has been extended and will be open until midnight on August 20, 2022

For any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out at:

Thank you in advance for your time.
