You may have an in-house team that handles pest control or you may hire a thrid-party company to perform those services. Either way, you need to know how those programs work so they can be implemented effectively. This course will cover the basics of pest management plans, the key elements that need to be in place, and how they are being put into action.

You will learn about how to inspect for pests and what the inspections should look for. It will also discuss monitoring programs, the monitoring devices, and how to use the data that is collected to make educated pest management decisions based on pest thresholds. The most effective plan focuses on prevention and we will cover the steps you can take to avoid having pests become established at your site.
