What’s Eating Your Collection – Integrated Pest Management 2-Day Workshop
Are there things going “crunch” in the night in your museum? Are your windowsills littered with unidentified corpses? This practical two-day course will provide you with the knowledge to identify a wide range of museum insect pest species, how to find insects in your museum and how to set up a monitoring programme. It will also look at ways of controlling pests if they have discovered your collections. Real-life case studies are used to show how the knowledge gained can be used to implement Integrated Pest Management. The focus is on practical identification of pest species, and the locations where they are likely to be found.
Who should attend? All those with responsibility for pest programmes and those who want to gain a greater understanding of what insects are eating their collections. The course will be especially useful for those working towards museums Accreditation or maintaining the Accreditation standard. No prior knowledge is necessary and this course is aimed at all abilities.
If you sign up to attend this workshop, you need to be able to attend both days.
