Annual Urban Pest Management Conference set for March 26
Date:3/14/2013

RIVERSIDE, Calif. How can termites, bed bugs and Argentine ants be effectively controlled? What are some of the new invasive cockroach pests in California? And what are some ways to address the rodent problem in suburban structures and landscapes?

A one-day conference for both the public interested in these questions and professionals in the pest control industry will take place at the University of California, Riverside on March 26, from 7:15 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the University Extension Center (UNEX), 1200 University Ave., Riverside, Calif.

Registration for the 22nd Annual UC Riverside Urban Pest Management Conference costs $110 per person (includes parking fees). This fee is waived for reporters interested in covering all or part of the conference.

The keynote speech will be given at 8:30 a.m. by Nan-Yao Su, a professor of entomology at the University of Florida. The title of his talk is "Almost Eighty Years After 'Termites and Termite Control' by Kofoid (1934)."

Sponsored by the UCR Department of Entomology, the conference is especially popular with supervisors, managers and technicians in the structural pest control industry. Approximately 150-200 attendees are expected to attend this year's conference.

"This conference will provide the industry and public with the most up-to-date information on the biology and control of insect pests in and around urban structures," said Dong-Hwan Choe, an assistant professor of entomology at UCR and the lead organizer of the conference. "We have attendees from throughout Southern California and the adjacent states. By attending the conference, they can get their continuing education units for maintaining their professional licenses."
