On April 4 the IPM Experience House will offer its next course in termite control for te
This is our third year to offer this class for orienting new termite technicians to the art and science of termite control. Termite control expert, Dr. Bob Davis, will be demonstrating practical field skills for setting up and executing a soil termiticide job. Kevin Keim, with Corteva, will provide an overview of termite baiting, including practical aspects of bait placement and installation. They are joined by Dr. Mike Merchant in the classroom to provide some of the basic biology of termites you need to know if you are to be on the top of your game.
Owners, this is a great opportunity to get new or old employees ready for termite season. Half of the class will be classroom, and half will be in the field, conducting a termite treatment. One termite CEU will be offered for those who complete the class.
