Cockroach Allergens, Baits and the Sweet Science of Glucose Aversion

The Environmental Protection Agency is sponsoring a webinar on Cockroach Allergens, Baits and the Sweet Science of Glucose Aversion.
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 | 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET

Join us and learn from the cockroach whisperer. A live Q/A will follow after the webinar. Get your questions answered.

Participate in an engaging science-based webinar on cockroaches featuring North Carolina State University’s Dr. Coby Schal, a leading authority on cockroaches. Dr. Schal will cover the followings topics:
1. The pathogens cockroaches carry and their role in childhood asthma.
2. The importance of cockroach identification as a key step in an integrated pest management (IPM) program.
3. Practical aspects of cockroach aversion to certain sugars and insecticide resistance.
4. The latest cockroach research and control strategies for schools and homes.

Presenter:
Dr. Coby Schal is the Blanton J. Whitmire Distinguished Professor of Entomology at North Carolina State University. He has a B.S. from SUNY-Albany, a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, and postdoctoral training at the University of Massachusetts. Dr. Schal’s diverse research includes projects on cockroach pheromones, cockroach-produced allergens, bed bug ecology and resistance management, roles of microbes in mosquito and sand fly oviposition, and the neuronal basis of sugar aversions in cockroaches.

Space is limited to the first 1,000 to register. Register here. More information here.
