About 150 people and one dog from 35 countries and six continents came to Krakow, Poland to learn about the latest advancements in stored product pest management.

About 150 people and one dog from 35 countries and six continents came to Krakow, Poland to learn about the latest advancements in stored product pest management. The Fumigants & Pheromones Conference is held every two years. The next edition will be in Adelaide, Australia in 2016.

The theme of this conference was Pest Management Around the World. The speakers covered a wide variety of topics from an international pest management perspective. Invited speakers included: Bobby Corrigan, Stan Ignatowicz, Dave Mueller, Otto Mück, Alain VanRyckeghem, Rikiya Sasaki, David Liska, Vasilis Sotiroudas, Austin Frishman, Axel Heptinne, Arda Taner, Stan Buckley, Shashank Nagaraj, Annette Johansson, with Ashes the dog, Pat Kelley, Pete Mueller, Alexander Zrely, Gennady Zakladnoy, and Frank Arthur.

After three days of meetings, the group was bused to one of the original UNESCO World Heritage sites at the Wieliczka Salt Mines where the gala dinner was held in a 450 year old salt mine that was used to preserve food. The final day of the conference offered excursions to various sites in and around Krakow.

David Mueller, conference organizer and president of Insects Limited and Fumigation Service & Supply of Indianapolis stated: “This was by far the friendliest conference we have organized since our first international conference in Lübeck, Germany in 1993. The attendees at this meeting were different from most educational conferences; they came to visit old friends, learn about practical ideas to improve their business, and to see a part of the world that they have not seen before. Golden Krakow did not disappoint us.”

If you missed this year’s conference, the 12th Fumigants & Pheromones Conference will be in March 2016 in Adelaide, Australia. Mueller concluded: “I hope you get a chance to experience this international conference someday. It is fun, family friendly, and educational.”
