Industrial, Institutional, Structural, and Health Related Pest Control Training - Category F1
*Update, 6/3/2020: This September 2020 Industrial, Institutional, Structural, and Health Related Pest Control Training is currently being evaluated. The course will be offered in some combination of virtual training and in-person training. While we hope to include an in-person component, please understand that this may not be possible. The planning team is working on designing the course for 2020 that will offer a safe and quality experience for all. Please check back by July 13 for further updates and registration information.
This all-day Industrial, Institutional, Structural, and Health Related Pest Control Training, category F1, will focus on individuals and businesses in the field of Urban IPM. This course is being offered to address the continuing educational needs of the Urban IPM community and will be conducted by Urban IPM professionals.
A structural pest control applicator must be able to identify, and know the basic life history, habitat and damage of structural pests. From this information, the applicator must be able to determine a method of control, and if that method of control involves the use of pesticides, the applicator must ensure that pesticides are used safely and effectively. This training will cover the minimum amount of information that all structural pest control applicators must know in order to be a proficient pesticide applicator in category F1.
We will have guest speakers share information and expertise in the areas of Principles of IPM, Current Topics in Pest Management, Pesticide safety- what’s in that active ingredient, Insect ID Lab: Key pests found in NH residences, Bedbugs and their Resurgence, Rodent Management in Residential Areas and Pesticide Use and Record Keeping requirements.
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.
Time: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cost: Early Registration Price $120. After September 1, price is $140.
Registration will open in July.
