Register Now!

Rodents and flies are not only nuisances. Some transmit diseases themselves, some injure animals allowing for other kinds of health problems and still others can damage equipment and facilities. This webinar will focus on the importance of controlling these pests. The speakers in this webinar will discuss, not only how to control pests, but also the safety of the livestock, the caretakers, and non-target animals and insects around the farm when doing so.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters include:

  • Sonja Swiger, Texas A&M University
  • Cassandra Olds, Kansas State University
  • Jennifer Weisbrod, University of Nebraska - Lincoln
  • Nicole Luhr, University of Nebraska - Lincoln (Moderator)

Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page. Find out more about this webinar and future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
