ST. LOUIS, Mo. — BASF Pest Control Solutions’ 2011 Skill Development Seminar (SDS) kick off next week in Columbia, S.C.

“Each year during our SDS series we take a survey from attendees to find ways to improve the series for the next year,” said Brian Mann, marketing services manager, BASF Pest Control Solutions. “Last year’s survey revealed strong interest in expanding the technical topics and adding ways to improve business.”
 
The 2011 series will consist of five hours of technical sessions covering BASF SmartSolutions for termites, ants, cockroaches and flies. Information on selling and servicing with a value-added approach will also be part of the series.
