Target Specialty Products will host a webinar titled “The Importance of German Roach Control as a Public Health Pest Using Assessment Based Strategies” on Oct. 5 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern.

Thomas Powell, technical field specialist at MGK, will host the free webinar. He will discuss:

  • German cockroaches
  • Importance of cockroaches in the urban environment
  • What is resistance to a gel bait
  • What is APM?
  • Heavy infestation strategies
  • Medium infestation strategies
  • Low infestation strategies
  • What does a rotation program look like?

Powell joined the MGK team as a technical field specialist in 2016, where he is responsible for training, field testing, customer support and other internal projects. He received his bachelor and master of science degrees in urban entomology from the University of Florida. Prior to MGK, Powell spent 16 years in the pest management industry, including as a technical director for three pest control companies. He also held the position of branch manager for one of those companies. That experience in operations, Powell says, changed his perspective on the pest management industry, as he realized the value of strong training programs for operators. His current role at MGK gives Powell the opportunity to pursue this passion for teaching and training in pest control.

Attendees will be able to ask questions at the end of the webinar. Registration is now available.
