Learn about IPM (integrated pest management) practices and understand the process involved in becoming a First Detector. A good introduction to more specific PPP programs offered throughout the year.
Preregistration with prepayment is required by Friday, February 12. Cost is $12 for members and $15 for the general public. Iowa State University students pay 15% off the member price.
