In partnership with Purdue University, AHIT is now offering the new Termites and Other Wood-Destroying Pests Management Correspondence Course. This new course includes extensive material on insects and diseases common to urban and industrial areas. This is a comprehensive training program in the management of pests in wood that you can complete via correspondence, from your either home or workplace. You can complete the course at your own pace in less than one year.
The course covers many different wood-infesting pests (diseases and arthropods), and provides comprehensive coverage of arthropod and disease identification, and pest prevention and control. Included are specific examples and the biology of subterranean termites, drywood and dampwood termites, carpenter ants, powderpost beetles (anobiid, bostrichid, and lyctid), old house borer, round-headed borers, flat-headed borers, and other woodboring beetles.
