Join us in welcoming Dr. ElRay Roper, Syngenta. This is Dr. Roper’s first appearance as a speaker at the New York Pest Expo and we are looking forward to his presentation Pest Ants: Easy to Kill – Hard to Control. This presentation will be a review of basic ant biology and colony organization. We will highlight the principal species common to the Northeast United States. We will also explore strategies for their control.

After starting his career as a researcher and instructor at NCSU, he joined Syngenta in 1986. He provides technical support for Syngenta’s products through development, testing, preparation of technical literature and training.
