Conference on Integrated Pest Management

From: Rachael Perkins Arenstein <rachael<-a>
Date: Saturday, January 4, 2014
The registration website for the MuseumPests2014 conference is now


The Integrated Pest Management Working Group has partnered with the
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to hold a two-day conference and
workshop program March 27-28, 2014 in Williamsburg VA to celebrate
our 10th anniversary of creating online Integrated Pest Management
(IPM) resources for the museum, library/archive, and historic site

Over the past decade cultural institutions have made great strides
in implementing policies and procedures that protect our
collections, our staff, and our environment by focusing on
preventive methods and non-toxic remediation.  There is still much
to learn and this conference presents the opportunity to learn from
and with colleagues from across the United States and around the
world, including many of the leading researchers and practitioners
in the field.  The resources presented at the conference will be
shared on


In the morning sessions keynote talks by David Pinniger and Tom
Strang will be followed by papers and panel presentations centered
around four themes relevant to the implementation of IPM in cultural
heritage institutions of all types including:

    Institutional Implementation of IPM
    Monitoring and Control
    Treatment and Remediation
    IPM Policy, Health and Safety

A poster session will highlight additional institutional programs
with a focus on international implementation of IPM in developing
countries.  The afternoon sessions will allow participants to choose
hands-on workshops and on-site tours for IPM practitioners of all
levels of expertise.

Looking forward to seeing you,

Rachael Arenstein and Ryan Jones
IPM Working Group Co-Chairs
