CLEVELAND, Ohio — Today’s increasing focus on public health has impacted the pest control industry just as it has the food supply chain. As such, that industry’s mission to protect public health is continuing to expand and evolve – and circle around to impact its services for the food industry. Whether your pest control services are conducted in-house or by an external provider, you’ll benefit from participation in the PCT Public Health Virtual Conference scheduled for Wednesday, April 17. QA’s sister media provider, PCT, has compiled a program featuring a number of leading entomologists with proven track records for developing successful treatment protocols for a wide array of public health pests. The presentation Double Trouble: Successful IPM Strategies for Flies & Rodents by Rollins Inc. Technical Services Manager Glen Ramsey is likely to be of particular interest to food processors. 

In addition to learning from some of the leading public health pest control experts, attendees can earn CEU credits. PCT is in the process of receiving CEU approvals for the event; thirteen states have approved a total of 82 credits thus far. Click here for an updated list.
