CDC and NEHA teach IPM

For the past year, the CDC-in partnership with the National Environmental Health Association-has sponsored regional workshops to teach health inspectors and other public employees about the biology and control of insects and rodents. The most recent conference was held in Okoboji, Iowa and featured sessions on vector-borne diseases, IPM, bed bugs, structural pest management, rodents, ticks and health effects of pesticides. Attendees participated in a kitchen and grounds walk-through of a local resort, in which they were asked to identify pest-conducive conditions.
