Small Fly Management in Restaurants, Food Facilities and Schools presented by Dr. Reid Ipser of Nisus, this session will provide an overview of the most common small flies including Drain flies, Fruit flies, and Phorid flies. We will cover identification, inspection and control methods. Control methods will look at sanitation, drain cleaning and exclusion methods, as well as the EPA-registered products for small flies, their proper application and safety.

Termite Biology and Termidor Interactions presented by Dr. Jason Meyers of BASF. Occasionally termites throw us for a loop. They complicate situations by showing up in places we didn’t expect. They become difficult to control when we have a multitude of different constructions types. We need to be prepared to use all tools in our toolbox. This session will explore the use of both liquid and bait for termite control - and discuss the termite behavior and social system, colony research, and the equipment and products available.

Pest Control has not been restricted in Virginia and has been declared an “Essential Service” in states surrounding Virginia.

Below is an brief explanation for Virginia, followed by  links for letters that can be carried by technicians in Virginia and surrounding states.
In Virginia, pursuant to Gov. Northam's Executive Order 55 2.a on March 30, 2020, all public and private in-person gatherings of more than ten individuals are prohibited. This includes parties, celebrations, religious, or other social events, whether they occur indoor or outdoor. This restriction does not apply: a. To the operation of businesses not required to close to the public under Executive Order 53
Remember: You are not required to continue operations, but if you do you have the responsibility to follow CDC Guidelines on social distancing and disinfection of common surfaces, and in Virginia, you may not have a gathering of more than 10 people.
This information is normally preserved for members of VPMA, but during this pandemic that efffects the entire Industry VPMA is making information available to all PMPs. As a member based organization we rely on our members to fund the efforts of VPMA.
