Target Specialty Products’ webinar to share tips for tough pests


July 16, 2020



Target Specialty Products, a service provider of pest and turf and ornamental solutions in the United States and Canada, will hold a 1-hour webinar on Thursday, July  30, at 1:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern. As part of its Business Growth Webinar Series of 2020, the topic is “Tried & True Tips for Tackling Tough to Kill Pests.”

Bayer Environmental Science has partnered with Target for the webinar. Joe Barile, BCE, is the technical service lead for Bayer’s Environmental Science Division’s Pest Management & Public Health Business Group. He will be the guest speaker.

His presentation will help pest management professionals with pests that have developed a reputation for being tough to control — such as spiders, scorpions and bed bugs. He will share best practices in managing these pests.

PMPs can register for the webinar free of charge here. Attendees are invited to ask questions at the conclusion of the webinar. PMPs can earn continuing education units (CEUs) for attending.
