City of New Orleans Pest Academy, October 10-12, 2017

Join the City of New Orleans Mosquito & Termite Control Board for a great learning experience at the City of New Orleans and the Greater New Orleans Pest Control Association’s 9th Annual Pest Control Academy.  The Academy will be held in New Orleans on October 10-12, 2017. The Academy will feature interactive and hands-on programs regarding identification, biology, and control methods of many urban pests. The Academy is accredited for Louisiana in a variety of categories. Featured speakers this year will be Dr. Roberto Pereira from the University of Florida, Ms. Janet Hurley from Texas AgriLife, and Dr. Mohamed Sallam from the EPA.    

They will cover a variety of topics, including rodent biology and control, termites, spiders, mosquito control, and much more.  Pest management professionals will walk you through an inspection of a commercial kitchen.  Field stations will be set up to learn about PPE, calibration, and pest identification, mosquito surveillance and more.    

Class size is limited to 30 people because of the interactive, hands-on activities.  For more information about the Academy or reserve your spot, contact Claudia Riegel at (504)658-2400 or go to their web page.
