In these webinars we will discuss the life cycles and control parameters of Food Storage, Fabric, Rodent and Vertebrate Pests. Many of these pests are target and environment specific. In other words, knowing what their preferred diet is, and what areas they inhabit can aid in controlling them without the need for repetitive pesticide applications. We will also look at the legal and regulatory compliance needed for pests that inhabit areas where food is stored.
