PCT Announces First-Ever Public Health Virtual Conference

If you’re considering growing your public health footprint, you’ll want to attend the PCT Public Health Virtual Conference on April 17.

February 8, 2019

CLEVELAND — The pest control industry owes much of its recent growth to the rapid expansion of various niche markets tied to the industry’s public health mission, including mosquito control, tick IPM, rodent management and perimeter pest control. As a result, more and more PMPs are exploring the benefits of entering these markets or investing additional time and resources marketing these essential pest control services. If you’re considering growing your public health footprint for the 2019 pest control season, you’ll want to attend the PCT Public Health Virtual Conference scheduled for Wednesday, April 17. 

The program will feature a number of leading entomologists with proven track records for developing successful treatment protocols for a wide array of public health pests, allowing companies to expand their service offerings and enhance their bottom line in the months and years ahead. Attendees also will learn about products they can integrate into their public health pest control arsenal from virtual event sponsors BASF, SyngentaThermacell, and Tick Box Technology Corporation.

*PCT is in the process of receiving CEU approvals for the event.
