Integrated Pest Management: The Plan and Implementation
A written plan formalizes the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy and keeps management abreast of your status. It organizes your ideas and lays the groundwork for the needs of the collection and the building(s). It provides the direction in which you want to take the program, including grant funding and accreditation.
In this four week online course, taught by Carnegie Museum of Natural History conservator Gretchen Anderson, participants will learn how to apply IPM principles to their specific situation and institution. A draft plan and specific implementation strategies will be developed and discussed. Even though our institutions have different challenges the exchange of ideas presents the opportunity for us to help each other brainstorm solutions that will work for our situation.
