Three-Day Training Course in Rodent Management
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service IPM Experience House along with Target Specialty Products is offering the spring three-day, intensive rodent control training course for pest management professionals.

The goal of the Texas Rodent Academy is to provide a highly focused and standardized approach to managing rodent populations through Integrated Pest Management (IPM). After completing this course, graduates will be able to manage rodent populations more effectively, because they will have a better understanding of the biology, behavior, and habitat of rodents, contributing factors to infestation, effective ways of evaluating site-specific responses and strategies, and effective communication strategies with the public to achieve lasting change and improvements.

Who Should Attend?
This course is intended for pest management professionals, municipalities, universities, public schools, and food safety personnel involved in the rodent control programs. This course is not for apprentice training but designed for those individuals who have some knowledge of rodents and want to learn more on how to effectively control them. 

Speakers:  Dr. Bobby Corrigan, Dr. Mike Merchant, Sylvia Kenmuir, BCE, PCA (Director of Technical Training, Target Specialty Products), Emory Matts (Technical Services Manager, Region 17, Rentokil - North America) and Janet Hurley. 

Tuition: $300 is to cover the cost of materials and meals during the training

Class Size: To ensure quality and good instructor-to-student interaction, the Academy can only accommodate approximately 25 students per session. A maximum of two employees per company will be allowed.
