Dr. Dini Miller of the Dodson Urban Pest Management Lab at Virginia Tech and Eddie Connor, of Connor’s Pest, will provide participants with the latest and greatest in bed bug management research and control methods.
The first half of the workshop will discuss the basics of bed bug biology, behavior and provide an overview of the importance of monitoring (the future is monitoring!) prevention, and how to maximize the flexibility of your control methods.
Your company may not use heat or dogs but every customer has heard about these methods. You need to know how to answer their questions. Therefore, the second half of the day will involve multiple demonstrations including: canine detection, monitoring, building and using heat chambers, and whole home heat treatment demonstrations (electric and propane) at Richmond public housing.
Finally, teams of participants will develop what they think are the best treatment protocols for bed bug infested apartments based on the levels of infestation, clutter and size of the unit. This is a training you will not want to miss.
