Although numerous beetles play an important role in nature through forest sustainability, wood-boring beetles present PCOs and homeowners with several challenges. These beetles are occasionally encountered when they unexpectedly emerge from lumber in new buildings or are carried indoors inside firewood. The damage caused by adults and larvae of these insects ranges from unsightly holes in the wood’s surface to a reduction in the structural integrity of a piece of lumber. Join industry veteran Daniel Dye as he reviews commonly encountered wood-boring beetles and strategies for both preventing and remediating infestations.

Rodent and wildlife control are two of the pest control industry’s most important and profitable segments. Many pest management professionals have created and are successfully executing rodent and wildlife management programs heavily focused on inspection and exclusion. One of the pillars of such a program is active monitoring, which helps PMPs determine when and where rodent and wildlife pests are active, the size of the population and whether they’re visiting traps. Since rodents and wildlife pests are most active at night, when people usually are not working or awake, there is a real need for monitoring technology such as game cameras. Join Texas A&M’s Janet Hurley on Dec. 4 for a webinar in which she takes a deep dive into rodent and wildlife monitoring and how it fits into IPM programs. Hurley will also share her experiences working with monitoring technology and how PMPs can best integrate it into their operation.
