Virginia PMPs - don't miss NPMA’s 30th annual Legislative Day, March 12-14 in Washington, DC.  This year’s event is shaping up to be one of the most impactful Legislative Days in recent memory. Falling within the first 100 days of the Trump Administration and Republican-controlled U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, a lot of important issues will be up for debate in Washington D.C. 

Of specific importance to our industry are:

The proper role of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the structural pest management industry

  • Eliminating duplicative National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits
  • Crafting responsible overtime laws that benefit both employers and employees.  

Additionally, massive programs like health care and the U.S. tax code will be under intense review and will have an impact on your business.

VPMA also holds a dinner on Monday, March 13th at 7:00 pm for all Virginia members! Please join us!

Carl Falco, the lead trainer of the VPMA Certified WDI Inspector Program, reviews pest identification biology and behavior, defines what a thorough inspection involves, leads technicians in discussions surrounding the nuances and gray areas of conducting WDI Inspections and provides step-by-step detail about completing the NPMA-33.

If your company conducts WDI Inspections, put your technicians through this course to increase the thoroughness of inspections, the accuracy of reports and reduce your company's liability. By attending the course and passing an exam, they will earn the voluntary certification as a VPMA WDI Inspector!

Advanced self-study is required so early registration is advised!

Trainers for this program are Dr. Dini Miller, and Molly Stedfast from the Dodson Urban Pest Management Lab at Virginia Tech. The first half of the workshop will walk participants through the identification of the major cockroach pest species. The second half of the workshop will include a discussion of cockroach biology and behavior. This will be followed by an exercise in cockroach monitoring.  Participants will also have the opportunity to conduct some research on German cockroach bait preferences (granules, gels, containerized) and discuss the knockdown time for different bait formulations. We’ll also discuss why these preferences might alter our management plan. We will end with a discussion of the attributes of different cockroach control products involving different sprays and aerosols, dusts, baits and “green” products.

There are a maximum of 35 seats available for this workshop - so register early!
