Pest infestation is one of the greatest threats to museum collections. Historic New England is a recognized leader in innovative solutions to Integrated Pest Management. We are raising $41,000 to keep the bugs at bay through such aggressive, proactive measures as:

  • Hiring and training preservation care assistants to systematically clean and inspect collections at our historic sites

  • Increased monitoring with pheromone traps

  • Testing new materials to deter insect activity
