IPM Working Group

From: Rachael Arenstein <rachaelarenstein<-a>
Date: Sunday, December 7, 2008
We are currently accepting requests for a spot at the 2009 IPM
Working Group Meeting to be hosted by the American Museum of Natural
History in New York City, February 23-24, 2009. The IPM Working
Group is a group of museum professionals from various disciplines
dedicated to the development of pest management resources for the
general museum community.  The goal of the working group meeting is
not to teach IPM, but rather to focus on developing resources to
make IPM easier for museum staff.

We recognize that every museum has similar challenges with regards
to pest management. We hope that the working group can help solve
problems while alleviating the need for every museum to come up with
their own solutions. Some of the available resources include the website; a free pest manager downloadable database,
the museum pest mailing list; templates for developing IPM policy
and procedure documents, case studies on pest control treatment,
PowerPoint training documents, IPM bibliographies and a list of IPM
web links.  All of these are accessible from the website at


This year's meeting will allow for continued work on the long-term
goals of the various sub-committees including:  Pest
Imaging/identification aids, data collection and visualization
tools, and pest treatment resources.  Participants should expect to
take an active role in the work of at least two subgroups.

For more information on the working group please see the FAQ page on

If you would like to attend the meeting please contact IPM Co-chair
Rachael Perkins Arenstein <rachael<-a t->arensteinconservation< . >com>.
Please put "IPM Working Group RSVP" in the subject line of the
e-mail as messages without this will not be opened.
