VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: COVID-19 and Rodent Control - Practical Solutions to Address Rodent IPM in a Post-Pandemic World


NPMA Special Alerts

June 10, 2020  1:00pm - 5:00pm EDT

Join the National Pest Management Association for a virtual rodent workshop examining the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on rodent behavior, rodent control and the pest management opportunities that have become available as a result of the “new normal” that our society is now operating in. 


Top rodent experts will address the hottest topics of the year related to rodents: What’s the public health link? Is rat behavior changing? Has human social-distancing behavior made it easier or harder to control rodents? This four-hour, online experience will answer all of these questions and more. CEU credits have been approved in many states!
