Troyano Presents at the Entomological Society of America

20 June, 2011

Rentokil North American Training Manager and Entomologist Nancy Troyano PhD recently participated as a guest speaker at the Entomological Society of America – Eastern Branch Annual Meeting. 

Her presentation was part of an educational symposium on “Teaching Entomology at Various Education Levels: Perspectives, Techniques, and Challenges.” Dr. Troyano was asked to present on behalf of the Pest Control Industry and spoke on “Teaching in Industry: Using Entomology to Turn a Job into a Career.” She shared with the audience what Rentokil North America Pest Control does as a company in order to train new Technicians, as well as our methods for ongoing Technician training.

“I received some great feedback from Universities and many members of the audience not affiliated with the Pest Control Industry about how in-depth our Company’s’ entomology training really is. It was really a great opportunity for me to present to such an esteemed group of professionals!”

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) is the largest organization in the world serving the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. They have more than 6000 members and offer several scientific journals that cover all aspects of entomology. ESA’s Eastern Branch Annual Meetings cover a geographic region from Canada to Virginia.
