FMC True Champions will host its next First Friday webinar, titled “Perimeter Pest Control,” on Feb. 9 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern.

The one-hour training webinar will detail how to inspect the perimeter of a home, how to calibrate equipment, and perimeter pest identification. These include locating potential entry points, pest harborage, spreaders and handheld sprayers, and identifying spiders, ticks, cockroaches and other invaders.

FMC True Champions members have an opportunity to earn continuing education units (CEUs) in selected states. At press time, those states include Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maryland, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and Florida.

Lou Sorkin, BCE, president and forensic entomologist at Entsult Associates, will host the webinar.

Sorkin grew up in Westchester County, N.Y., and eastern Connecticut where he always had a keen interest in animals, especially arthropods and reptiles and amphibians. Teachers invited him to bring his animals to teach the younger children’s school classes. Sorkin graduated with an master of science degree in entomology from the University of Connecticut in 1978 and began his arachnological career in the Department of Entomology (now the Division of Invertebrate Zoology) at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He pursued his interests in spiders and other arachnids, especially certain parasitic species. For the last 35 years, he has also focused on the common bed bug, Cimex lectularius. In 2020, he retired from the museum after 43 years of service. Sorkin incorporated his entomology consulting business, Entsult Associates, in 2000. He is a board certified entomologist in urban and industrial entomology, specializing in forensic studies.

Registration for the webinar is now available.
