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

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 the www.museumpests.net website. 

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:

  1. Institutional Implementation of IPM
  2. Monitoring & Control
  3. Treatment & Remediation
  4. IPM Policy, Health, & 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.
