Dont let the Bugs Bite – Bed Bugs and Lice Go to School

PASBO Webcast - April 27, 2010 9:30-11:00AM
Dont let the Bugs Bite – Bed Bugs and Lice Go to School

Bed bugs, headlice and schools do not mix! So how can school facilities managers, nurses and principals nip this problem in the bud? How do you communicate effectively with school staff and the local community about the issue? The Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) is sponsoring an informative webcast on the emerging bed bug problem in schools and an overview of action items that schools can take.
  • Dr. Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann of Cornell University will explain the basics about these annoying creatures and their control.
  • Jeff Bryan, Director of Buildings and Grounds at the Red Lion Area School District will give the school practitioner’s viewpoint.
  • Sarah Pickel from the PA Department of Agriculture will explain the current legal status of pest management in Pennsylvania schools and the resources available to assist schools with compliance.
For more information, including the cost and how to register, please see visit the PASBO website, or call PASBO at (717) 540-9551. Pesticide education credits in multiple categories are available.
