EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Action Pest Control will host its12th annual Food and Grain Industry Pest Management Seminar on July 23, at the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center in Evansville, Ind.

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Bobby Corrigan. “We are very happy to get Bobby back after a three year absence. His schedule is very demanding and we are fortunate to have him. His presentations are always informative,” says Scott Robbins, Action’s Technical Director.

Joining Corrigan this year is Dr. Linda Mason of Purdue University and Judy Loven from USDA-APHIS Wildlife Services. “Dr. Mason participated in four of the early seminars and we are very glad to get her back on the agenda. Our audience will benefit greatly from her recent research. Judy Loven will bring a different perspective on bird management than we have heard the past few years.”

“I considered renaming the seminar ‘Purdue South’ for this year as the West Lafayette influences are obvious”, said Robbins. “It is another great program packed with the best in the industry.”
