Dr. Dini Miller will be leading this training program with her laboratory members, Morgan Wilson (a former wildlife removal technician), and Dakotah Todd. This workshop will walk the technician through the identification, biology, and management of a diverse group of arthropods (and wildlife invaders) that like to enter homes. This group of pests will include mayflies, centipedes, crickets, beetles, stink bugs, bat bugs and other invading arthropods. Morgan Wilson will discuss the issues associated with wildlife entering homes, and what to do when they are found living in the attic. Learn why these animals and arthropods want to come inside and how to curtail their invasion. I mean, who wants an invasion of brown marmorated stink bugs year after year?

Seats are limited to 20 registrants, so register early.
