August 16, 2019
9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Location: Minneapolis Institute of Art – Minneapolis, MN
Patrick Kelley, Vice President of Insects Limited, Inc. will teach this one-day workshop. Insects and other pests can do irreversible damage to objects of historic and artistic value. Preventing such damage is an essential element of best practice in collection care and requires the design and implementation of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) policy and plan. This workshop will introduce participants to multiples aspects of IPM: policy and procedure; preventing infestation; trapping and monitoring; remedial treatment; basic pest identification. It is designed for small to mid-sized institutions needing to establish or improve and IPM program but would be useful for anyone needing to develop or refresh basic IPM knowledge.
