The VPMA Master Technician Series will present Pest Ants in Woodbridge, VA on November 21st.

November 21, 2019 • 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

Comfort Suites near Potomac Mills

14525 Gideon Dr. • Woodbridge, VA 22192

The first half of the workshop will walk through the biology, behavior and identification of Virginia’s pest ant species (including Red Imported Fire ants). Each participant will use a reference collection of specimens, a species identification guide, and a taxonomic key to identify pest ant species by their physical characteristics.
Laboratory sessions will provide technicians with hands-on training in ant monitoring, and baiting, as well as the application of perimeter treatments for ant control. Perimeter treatments will include sprayer calibration, calculating the amount of material needed to treat a structure, safety, PPE, and timing your application. Come and learn why ants are the number one pest in the United States.

Attend to get this species under your Master Technician belt!
