  Abstract  
  The pest control industry has historically been driven by the developments of new and better chemistry. Equipment needs of the industry have traditionally lagged behind the needs of the industry - leaving pest control companies to often invent and modify their own equipment. With the effectiveness of modern chemicals and the large drive toward Integrated Pest Management (IPM), the most limiting factor of the pest control industry is the need for equipment which far surpases traditional equipment. Surveys of the equipment needs for pest control have been conducted for several years, showing trends over time. Future development needs as well as current trends in equipment are reviewed in relation to the needs of the chemicals and the practices of the worldwide industry.
