We invite you to join us for a 60 minute Presentation on Managing Fleas and Ticks. followed by a Q&A Session. A great opportunity to for YOU AND YOUR STAFF to directly reach professionals working in the industry. Flea control can be very challenging. However, with diligence and the correct tools, even the most stubborn flea problems can be surmounted. Best practices for flea management include an integrated pest management (IPM) approach. IPM includes multiple tactics aimed at reducing the potential for flea infestation as well as implementing control measures.
With a steady increase in the incidence and spread of tick-borne diseases, homeowners, public health officials and the pest control industry must know how to manage or control a tick problem. Additionally, tick control can be an excellent add-on service for your business to help keep these pests out of your customers’ properties. This presentation will discuss the importance of both flea and tick identification, public health concerns and tools available for flea & tick management.
