Best Practices for Urban Pyrethroid and Fipronil Applications by Pest Control Professionals

The University of California Cooperative Extension and the California Department of Pesticide Regulation are offering a two-day webinar for licensed structural pest management professionals in California to learn about:

- California's laws and regulations on structural application of pyrethroids and fipronil
- integrated pest management
- water quality concerns and DPR's environmental monitoring for urban pesticides

The webinar will be held over two days. Both days will include lectures covering laws, regulations, pesticide calibration, reporting, and IPM, and an ending quiz each person must pass by 70%. You must attend both days in order to receive credit. Each participant will be sent a unique Zoom link and must connect using their own device in order to earn CEUs.
