RICHFIELD, Ohio — PCT announces the Advanced Rodent Control Virtual Conference. Scheduled for March 13, the half-day event (from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.)  is led by Dr. Bobby Corrigan.

Eliminating the occasional mouse or rat around a building is typically not very difficult. But managing rodent infestations in commercial facilities under a wide variety of structural and environmental situations, while also providing a cost-effective service to consumers, is often much more challenging.

The goal is not to kill individual rodents but rather to efficiently manage and, where possible, eliminate local rodent populations in an environmentally responsible fashion. This can only be done with both an applied approach using situational analysis, together with a sound understanding of the science behind rodent biology and behavior.

Featuring the “Sherlock Holmes of Rodent Control” Dr. Robert Corrigan, owner and president, RMC Pest Management Consulting, topics covered include:

• Rodent Control: A Market Opportunity An Overview of the Rodent Control Market Dan Moreland, Publisher, PCT Magazine
• More Investigator Than Applicator: How to Find Harborage Sites and the Main Travel Ways of Rodents in Buildings — Dr. Robert Corrigan
• Trapping Rats and Mice: Key Factors to Consider in Commercial and Residential Settings — Dr. Robert Corrigan
• Successful Strategies for Using Baits and Bait Stations: A PMP’s Guide to Frequently Asked Questions — Dr. Robert Corrigan
