Mueller shared the success of the virtual learning in a recent edition of the company’s newsletter, “Fumigants & Pheromones.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Insects Limited canceled its 14th annual Fumigants & Pheromones Conference for 2020. The conferences were started by Insects Limited founder David Mueller, who was inducted into the Pest Management Professional Hall of Fame in October 2019.
“We all had conferences and meetings we were looking forward to before COVID-19,” Tom Mueller said in a press release earlier this year. “We are not just a company that manufactures pheromones. Topping the list of our Core Values is education, and with our 14th Fumigants and Pheromones International Conference in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Africa, being postponed, we felt it was important to continue educating the industry about proper ways to monitor and manage stored product insects. We look forward to continuing our virtual seminars in the future, as well as rescheduling our 14th international conference in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.”
