Pest Management Training Programs Available from TAEX:
Dr. Bastiaan Drees, Professor and Extension Specialist
Department of Entomology
Texas A&M University
College Station, TX

Greenhouse and nursery operators and their employees have a need for access to pest management and pesticide safety training (Note: TAEX faculty can use these materials as take-home material for providing Continuing Education Units for individuals maintaining a Texas Department of Agriculture only for private applicators and only if accompanied by a worksheet, e.g., some type of written exercise, for return as proof of completion). These materials are also useful for providing training to other, non-licensed employees and staff. Products available at the TAEX Audio Visual Library can help provide a variety of educational opportunities.

Contact an Extension specialist (e.g., Dr. "Bart" M. Drees, 409-845-6800; FAX: 409/845-6501) or visit your County's Extension Agent (in Agriculture, Integrated Pest Management or Horticulture) with a copy of this newsletter article and request items from the list provided to meet your educational programming needs. These faculty/staff can process Form D-1084 ("Reguest For AV Library Materials") and/or contact Edna Eisfeldt (409/845-2704) to arrange to loan copies from the library. A deposit may be required. If you are aware of additional educational programs that you feel would be valuable additions to the library, please let me know and provide me with ordering information.
