Everyone attending the New York Pest Expo will be fortunate to hear two presentations from Dr. Stan Cope of Atlantic Paste and Glue – Catchmaster: Pest Control and the Protection of Health and Property – Partners for the Good of All & The Future of Mosquito-Borne Illnesses. Did we already mention this will be Dr. Cope’s first year presenting at the New York Pest Expo?

For his first year at the New York Pest Expo, Dr. Stan Cope will share an in-depth look at all the different ways pest control can benefit public health. Including from a medical, environmental, economic and psychological standpoint.

According to Cope, many PMP’s have dealt with situations involving delusory parasitosis, which is when a person mistakenly feels that they or their surroundings are somehow infested with insects.

The Future of Mosquito-Borne Illnesses

It’s time for mosquitoes by the numbers. PMP’s must understand how mosquitoes harm us and be aware of their ability to control them.

After reviewing the impact of Zika in 2015-2016, Cope will discuss all of the factors that come together for a disease outbreak to occur. Can we predict future outbreaks? What are the future threats? There are other major viruses already out there, which Cope says will eventually make their way to the U.S.

Dr. Stanton E. Cope, Jr., PhD, is currently the vice president of technical products and services for Atlantic Paste and Glue – Catchmaster. He served 24 years in the United States Navy as a medical entomologist, retiring with the rank of Captain in 2012. He has also authored over 80 publications and has delivered over 100 presentations at scientific meetings.
