Webinar: Pest Proofing and Exclusion, Thursday. Sept. 6, 2012 at 10:00 CDT

As summer winds down and we prepare for fall and winter – are your school buildings ready? Did you know a typical house mouse only needs the size of a dime (1/4 inch) to squeeze into your building? The average roof rat or Norway rat only needs the size of a quarter to enter a structure. Crickets, outdoor cockroaches and other crawling pests can gain entrance into your structure with less than ¼-inch gap under a door.

This informative webinar will discuss how you can prevent pest problems and how you and your staff can not only prevent pests, but also make your school buildings healthier.

Webinar Presenters:
Dr. Thomas Green, who has been a national leader in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for more than 20 years. Green has dedicated his career to help improve health, environment, and economics through IPM.

Dr. Fudd Graham holds a BS in animal science and a PhD in entomology. Currently Auburn University employs him as a coordinator of the Alabama Fire Ant Program. He is a co-leader for eXtension Urban IPM community and oversees the AL effort for school IPM. Graham holds a pest control license in Alabama and has used IPM in his pest control business for more than 20 years.

Janet Hurley, Extension Program Specialist for School IPM at Texas AgriLife Extension, will facilitate and moderate the session.
