Virtual presentations on practical solutions to pest problems

Are pests bugging you? We're here to help!

In this monthly virtual series, we'll explore timely topics to help you use integrated pest management (IPM) to avoid pest problems and promote a healthy environment where you live, work, learn and play. What is IPM? It's a wholistic approach that uses different tools and practices to not only reduce pest problems, but to also address the reasons why pests are there in the first place. Each month, our speakers will share practical information about how you can use IPM.

Events will happen on the first Friday of every month from 12:00 to 12:30 PM EST on Zoom. Below is the schedule of presentations from March 2021 to February 2022 (which may change a bit as we finalize speakers for July and beyond). Each month we’ll cover a timely topic in 25 minutes, including time for questions. Then, in an IPM Minute, we’ll cover a specific task you can perform in the next few days to help you avoid pest problems.
