EPA Webinar: Preventing and Controlling Stored Product Pests
October 24, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
EPA’s Center for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) hosts an ongoing series of webinars featuring experts from across the country relaying educational information and practical strategies for establishing and improving integrated pest management programs. Also featured are smart, sensible, and sustainable strategies for addressing specific pest issues.
Stored product pests include insect pests or fungi in raw and processed cereals, rice, seeds, spices, dried fruit and nuts, and other dry, durable commodities. A stored food or packaged product may become infested at the processing plant or warehouse, in transit, from other products, or in the storage pantry.
So how do we control these pests? The use of nonchemical and reduced-risk pest management methods requires a greater understanding of pest biology, behavior, ecology, and susceptibility to pest management methods. Discover IPM methods of controlling the most common stored product pests that might be multiplying in your pantry or storage area during this webinar.
