Target Specialty Products will host its the next installment of its free, one-hour Business Growth webinar series, titled “Battling Bed Bugs Using Assessment Based Strategies,” on Thursday, June 27, at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. MGK Technical Field Specialist Tommy Powell will provide a comprehensive overview of the history of the common bed bug, covering topics such as customer fears, bed bug biology, and assessment pest management (APM) treatment protocols.

Powell joined the MGK team as a technical field specialist in 2016, and he is responsible for training, field testing, customer support and other internal projects. He received his bachelor and master 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 Top 100 pest control companies. He also held the position of branch manager for one of those companies. “That experience in operations changed his perspective on the pest management industry,” the news release states, “as he realized the value of strong training programs for operators. His current role at MGK gives Tommy the opportunity to pursue this passion for teaching and training in pest control.”

Registration for the webinar is now available.
