Zoecon Launches Online Training Tool for PMPs

Supplier News

Visitors can explore a virtual residence to learn pest control tips and build a custom Integrated Pest Management plan.

| November 7, 2013

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — The Zoëcon Professional Products (ZPP) division of Central Life Sciences today launched the Residential Training Module at www.IPMtraining.com, a digital pest management resource developed for pest management professionals and product distributors. The website offers visitors facts about pests commonly found in a residential setting and suggests best practices to help PMPs address specific infestations and develop a customized Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.

“The Residential Training Module was developed to give pest management professionals (PMPs) of all size and level of expertise an educational resource to help with their work in the field,” said James Herrmann, director of marketing for Zoëcon Professional Products. “We’ve designed the site to be an immersive and intuitive tool providing detailed information about pests, different products available for treatment and application tips.”

The website provides a virtual residence for visitors to explore with detailed information on common household pests and more than 75 facts and tips providing protocol suggestions for effective treatment. The site highlights seven of the most common household pests – mosquitoes, wasps, fleas, cockroaches, ants, bed bugs and spiders – and provides a detailed look at areas of the home most commonly infested. Throughout the virtual home, visitors can read pest-control product descriptions and recommendations specific to the different applications, or ask a ZPP product expert any questions they may have through an online form. As visitors move through the site, they can add recommended products to a custom IPM plan that can be printed for future reference.
