    the annual event where attendees recharge their
    enthusiasm for their business and expose
    themselves to three days of fresh ideas, practical
    solutions and real applications.
         At the Academy, the next generation of pest
    management professionals is challenged to take
    charge of the industry. This year in Lake Las Vegas,
    attendees discussed models of innovation with
    thought-provoking speakers, including Dennis Fox
    and Brad Bartlett, took part in incredible networking
    opportunities, and participated in three days of
    team-building Olympic Games.

necessity and role in the public’s daily life, but
also how we grow because it will be this image
that will attract the new generation to want to seek
a career in pest management. As this evolution
takes place, there will be more demand for non-
technical skill sets which will create more
opportunities for people outside the industry,
such as me. This increased focus on more diverse
talent will open up opportunities for more females
to find their niche in our industry. I believe that we
hold a significant opportunity to let many talented
women and men know that we are a viable,
attractive career choice. We are a great industry
and we should make certain that this message
gets out.”
     Mary understands the mission of PWIPM
and its goal of strengthening the forces and
network of women in the industry. As the winner
of the 2006 PWIPM Scholarship, Mary will be
awarded the scholarship in the amount of $2,000.
     At PestWorld 2006, the PWIPM will continue
to raise funds for the scholarship program so that
they can continue to reward women, like Mary
Vongas, for their efforts to grow within the pest
management industry. Raffle tickets will be sold
by PWIPM throughout the convention (primarily
at the NPMA exhibit hall booth) for the chance to
take home a gorgeous piece of jewelry from the
illustrious, Tiffany’s. Be sure to buy your ticket(s)
at PestWorld for the opportunity to win the
beautiful Tiffany Magnolia Cuff, 18k green gold
and sterling silver, valued at $1,000. Visit to view this

                     Q.       I am having trouble with an insect
                              called a “cow killer,” or velvet ant.
                              I believe they are actually a wasp. I               Q.       I’m having a real issue with lizards
                                                                                           getting into an account. What
                                                                                           should I do?

                      think they are rare and do not fly. Can you
                      tell me more about them?

                                                                                            The lizards are there because they are
                                                                                            preying upon the insects that live there.

                              I am treating a daycare playground                  basement. It comes into the basement,
                              and there are wasps coming from                     especially in winter and occasionally I will find

                                You are most likely dealing with a Sphecid
                                wasp and it is digging burrows in this
                                sand box. The wasp itself isn’t aggressive                   You are most likely dealing with camel

                      close proximity. A sprinkler could keep the area wet        crawl spaces and basements where it is dark and
                      and unsatisfactory for the wasps, but then the kids         damp. When we experience a heavy

                      cause the wasps to give up and find a more welcome          of the home. It is best to reduce
                      habitat.                                                    moisture issues around basement
