The ABC’s of Pest Control: Allergens, Baits, and Cockroaches

March 2nd, 2017,

2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST/1 p.m. – 2:30 CST/noon – 1:30 p.m. MST/11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PST

Cockroach infestations can get out of hand quickly in multifamily housing. Best practices and treatments can turn things around to help maintain control. Join StopPests in Housing for a webinar on reducing asthma triggers in housing with effective cockroach control. On March 2nd, 2017, 2-3:30 p.m. EST, you’ll hear from Dr. Coby Schal, Ph.D, Department of Entomology, North Carolina State University. He will speak about his research on effective baiting techniques, and ineffective controls like total release foggers (bug bombs). Cockroach allergens have been linked to the development and increase in symptoms of allergies and asthma in cockroach sensitive individuals. You’ll learn how allergen levels can be significantly reduced with cockroach control alone, the most effective approach being gel bait treatments.

Dr. Schal’s work shows how an integrated pest management (IPM) approach with intensive, targeted cockroach control can lead to both dramatic reductions in cockroaches and clinically significant declines in cockroach allergens. You’ll get the information you need to advocate for and implement an IPM approach to cockroach control. This webinar is for all housing professionals and partner agencies who want to make housing safer and healthier for those that live and work there.  Register here for this online webinar and you will receive email instructions on how to join us on March 2nd: The ABC’s of Pest Control: Allergens, Baits, and Cockroaches Contact StopPests for more information: visit or email
