Course description: 

The IPM in Multifamily Housing Course was designed to help housing professionals understand their roles in supporting safe and effective pest control in their communities. The course covers:

  • the major health risks posed by common pests;

  • the biology and behavior of the major pests of housing (bed bugs, cockroaches and rodents);

  • and how to troubleshoot pest control failures.
