Structural Pest Control Training
Tuesday, 11/28/2017 (08:15 AM - 04:00 PM)

STRUCTURAL PEST CONTROL TRAINING

 

 UNH Cooperative Extension will host an all-day Structural Pest Control Training for individuals in the field of Urban IPM. This course is being offered for the first time to address the continuing educational needs of the Urban IPM community and will be conducted by Urban IPM professionals. This event will present content on: Principals of Urban IPM, Current Topics in Pest Management, Pest Problems after Storms and Other Disasters, Rodent Management, and Bedbugs and Their Resurgence. Hands-on training is to be provided in an Insect Identification Lab, equipped with microscopes and hand lens, to help professionals identify key pests found in NH residences based on anatomical features.

 

Structural pest management is the control and management of pests in public and private environments. Commercial environments subject to pest management include insect control, in, on, or around any structure and adjacent area, public or private, and for the protection of stored, processed, or manufactured products. Some commercial accounts are considered especially sensitive, and include nursing homes, hospitals, and schools. 

 

Pests in commercial accounts can be diverse, but in large part include ants, small and large flies, cockroaches, rodents, and a myriad of stored product pests to name a few. In New Hampshire, performance of commercial accounts is regulated by the New Hampshire Rules and Regulations pertaining to the F1 Category and the label guidelines of the product(s) of choice to control pests in commercial environments. In this workshop we will address various aspects of the biology and management of the key pest groups found in commercial accounts, and the New Hampshire Rules and Regulations in place for those working in this arena.

 

Recertification credits: 6.5
