Nisus Corp. has sponsored this month’s webinar. Dr. Jamel Sandidge, BCE, will share his knowledge about the biology of some pests and modes of action in the insecticides used.

His presentation will cover what resistance is and how it works for various actives, with the goal of helping attendees understand why product rotation with different modes of action is important when battling resistance.

Dr. Sandidge has served the pest control industry on multiple levels, including as a consultant, research entomologist and pest technician, for the past 18 years. Dr. Sandidge’s experience spans the practical understanding of owning a pest control business to developing knowledge through extensive education, research and development, and efficacy studies.

“We are thrilled to offer our customers another exciting webinar to educate them. ‘Battling Insecticide Resistance’ is such a hot topic, and we expect a record number in attendance for this month’s webinar,” says David Helt, president of Target Specialty Products.
