Identifying museum pest species and the risks they pose to collections is an essential component in protecting environments and detecting materials damage. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a preventive method of control that utilizes careful observation and monitoring to keep pests away from your institution. The instructor will offer recommendations for developing an IPM plan in museums, galleries, libraries, and archives and address pest identification, monitoring and eradication treatments.
Instructor: Emma Ziraldo, Preservation Specialist, CCAHA
