“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
Do you work with public housing? Inevitably, pest issues come up. Knowing how to prevent problems and what to do when an issue arises can help save time and money while reducing human health risks. The May 31st “Stop Pests in Housing Conference” at the Century House in Latham, NY, will provide you with the information you need.
Join speakers renowned for their expertise as they address the big three pests: bed bugs, cockroaches, and mice.
Registration is free but pre-registration is required. Coffee and lunch are provided. Click here to register.
This workshop is a part of the “Stop Pests in Housing Project: Enabling Residents to Live Pest Free and Housing Managers to Implement Integrated Pest Management.” It’s targeted to public housing managers, public works staff, maintenance staff, social workers, resident coordinators, Extension educators, and pest management professionals.
