Discoverers Event – Building a Better Mouse Trap: An Exploration into Museum Pest Control
October 22, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Gretchen Anderson
Pest management has come a long way since the days of drenching everything in poison. Today, an integrated approach, combining research into pest biology, environmental preferences, and origins is utilized. Dependence on the use of pesticides has greatly diminished. Integrated pest management is a holistic and sustainable way to get the better of those nasty little critters, i.e., bugs and mice.
