Joe BarileJoe Barile opened this year’s New York Pest Expo. His presentation, General Entomology for PMP’s focused on what the urban PMP needs to know about practical entomology. He is a great entomologist and outstanding educator. Joe was our instructor when Bug Off presented the first Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) Preparatory Course in 2008.

Joe started off with encouraging us all to become well-rounded entomological experts. Things are changing and we must change as well. We need to become more current and stop relying on treatments that are outdated. Always remember, you are the expert. Not your client. Rely on your knowledge not their assumptions. Investigate and confirm the problem. You must become more tactical and know the biology of the pest. You must predict what the outcome will be and decide if a treatment is necessary.

Joe Barile PE 2013It was a while since Joe made a presentation at the New York Pest Expo and he received a huge welcome back reception. From all of us, thanks Joe for being a part of the New York Pest Expo once again and sharing your expertise with us!

Roaches are rebounding and it’s time to go over the fundamentals. We’ve been ignoring roaches at the conferences and Joe put them back where they belong: front and center. To really understand how to approach a cockroach infestation you have to think small. Cockroaches like warm, humid and hidden places. They live a very secretive life. They’re also extremely sensitive to touch. If they sense the slightest breeze they’ll run and hide. They live for three things: food, water, and shelter/breeding sites. Remove any one of these elements (especially water) and you will create enormous stress on their environment.
