Dr. Dini Miller, Eddie Connor, and David Moore will provide participants with hands-on experience in setting up and understanding the nuances of the most novel and important bed bug control methods. The first part of the workshop will discuss the basics of bed bug biology and behavior. It will also provide an overview of the current monitoring, prevention and control methods used for controlling populations of different sizes.

Your company may not use heat treatments or fumigation for bed bugs, but customers have heard of these methods, and they may even have bed bugs in their cars! You need to know how to address your customer’s questions, and how to successfully address bed bugs in cars. Therefore the second half of the day will focus on whole-home heat treatments, and what it takes to fumigate vehicles, and chambers filled with personal items that cannot be treated with insecticides.

Seats are limited to 25 people, so please register early to guarantee your seat.
