Short Course

Friday’s short courses (LIMIT first 30 people)

On Friday, we will be hosting three hands-on short courses covering commercial kitchens, bed bugs, and 4-hour fumigation. The commercial kitchen workshop will be conducted in the kitchen of Covenant Presbyterian Church at 220 Rock Prairie Road, and will be led by Dr. Mike Merchant.

The bed bug course will be held at the Thomas G. Hildebrand Equine Complex at 3240 F&B Road and will be led by Dr. Robert Puckett with Alan Brown. The fumigation will be conducted at the Rollins Urban & Structural Entomology Facility, and will be led by David Saunders and Ed Vargo. These hands-on programs will be limited to the first 30 pre-registrants only (per session).

These short courses will be strictly first come, first serve and will be limited to the first people who PRE-REGISTER, and select the course they want at no cost.  It is not possible to mix and match, so you must select only ONE out of the three possibilities. Maps and further instructions will be provided in your registration packet.
