1 ANNUAL REPORT Integrated Pest Management Alliance Grant Urban Pest Ant Management (DPR Grant No. 07-PML-G001) Semi-annual progress report, 8 January to 1 August 2008 and Semi-annual progress report 1 August to 31 December, 2008 Dr. Michael K. Rust, PI Department of Entomology University of California, Riverside 92521

2 8 January - 1 August

3 Semi-annual Progress Report #1. This report is provided as partial fulfillment of Task 1.6 as specified in Goals and Objectives, Year 1 of the grant. As specified in the Goals and Objectives, the following tasks are being met: Task 1.1 Selected and began regularized ant control 'traditional' and 'IPM-based' service routes in Orange and San Diego counties by Team Member pest management companies Orkin Pest Control, Lloyd Pest Control, and Western Exterminator Company. Each of the routes consists of several hundred customers, each of which will be considered a replicate in terms of providing significant data sets by which comparisons may be made of the level of ant control provided by each strategy. Task 1.2 As agree-upon at Team Meetings, pre-treatment survey cards were developed and printed by each Team Member pest management firm. The cards were distributed to customers on the routes being compared. The purpose of the cards is to provide information as to the satisfaction and knowledge of IPM strategies of customers concerning the IPM strategies employed on their properties to minimize pesticide application while simultaneously mitigating or preventing urban pest ants at residences Task 1.3 All 3 Team Member pest management firms are implementing on entire treatment routes the 'traditional' versus the IPM ant management strategies approved when the grant was awarded. Each firm is utilizing their individualized standard treatment practice on one route and IPM practices that generally reduce the amount of pesticide applied and specifically limits the amount of pyrethroid insecticide applied by at least 50%. The two types of service have been implemented for nearly 3 months. Task 1.4 A prototype website has been developed and is on-line. The website is being produced by Dr. Cheryl Wilen, U.C. Cooperative Extension, with the assistance of Team Members and others in U.C. IPM (UCIPM). Content and links are being developed and refined with a view to unveiling a working version in fall, Task 1.5 The scope and intent of the IPM Urban Pest Ant Management PMA program was unveiled at the Urban Pest Management Conference at U.C. Riverside attended by nearly 200 pest management professionals. It was also discussed formally at DPR's annual training event in San Diego. The program has been announced and discussed at training workshops and seminars developed by Team Partner Target Specialty Products. A brief presentation was made at the annual convention of the California Pest Control Association (PCOC), and PCOC has expressed a willingness to participate more fully. Team Partner Univar has so far been unable to fully participate. As specified in the Objectives and Tasks, the following stated Tasks, Milestones or Deliverables/Outcomes have been achieved: 1. Grant Review and Organization - Done. Team Meeting 1 held 10 January

This was accomplished at a Team Meeting convened during a USDA Western Regional urban pest ant research meeting at U.C. Riverside on 20 August Due to conflicting summer schedules a Team Meeting was not held in July. Cooperating PMP firm Team Members reported that the survey cards have been distributed and the firms have implemented their comparative traditional and IPM service routes. No problems have yet been encountered and the PMP firms are acquiring data for the PMP as planned by the Team. In addition, an informative news article regarding the Urban Pest Ant PMA prepared by Stephanie Klunk, UCIPM Communications Specialist, has been reviewed for publication by the Team. 4

6 Semi-annual Progress Report #2. This report is provided as fulfillment of Task 2.7 as specified in Goals and Objectives, Year 2 of the grant. Taken together, the semi-annual progress report dated 8 January -1 August and this report (1 August -31 December 2008) constitute a 2008 Annual Report. The August through December portion of the report covers the time of year when ants are most abundant (summer) and when most pesticide is applied to control them. Following is a list of the specific tasks and their associated Deliverables achieved for each by the end of As specified in the Goals and Objectives, the following tasks were met: Task Service Routes. Regularized commercial ant control was provided on 'traditional' and 'IPM-based' service routes in Orange and San Diego counties by Team Member pest management companies Orkin Pest Control, Lloyd Pest Control, and Western Exterminator Company. Each route consisted of up to 250 customers serviced for pest ant problems. The routes covered a wide geographic area of southern California and provided significant data sets by which comparisons could be made of the type and amount of pesticide used and the level of ant control achieved in traditional versus IPM routes. Task Customer survey and cost analyses. Post-treatment survey methodology was changed because the Team was not satisfied with the relatively poor return obtained with the printed survey cards used before the IPM and Traditional treatments began. Lloyd's pretreatment response rate was near 50%, and indicated a likelihood that the overall response rate would be good. However, the customer survey response rate for the other companies was <10%. Although the lower response rate was about as in most surveys using printed materials, the Team sought to improve the customer response rate. The same questions were asked in telephone survey rather than using the printed card in hopes that the ease of answering the questions on the telephone would improve response rate. All the customers on all routes were called. The survey was conducted by professionals hired by each company. The survey was conducted November 1 to 7. As with the cards, overall response rate was poor, <10% of those called. The survey results, however, did indicate high levels (>95%) customer satisfaction regarding ant control regardless of the method used. Thios confirmed the general impression that the service technicians were reporting to their PMP supervisors. Statistically, the IPM routes had no more complaints or callbacks than the Traditional routes even though at least 50% less pyrethroid pesticide had been used on the IPM routes. Sample pre- and post-treatment survey results are shown in Appendix I. Because of their corporate accounting practices, Team PMPs could not provide their route cost data until December. Those data are presently being collated and analyzed. Cursory review and impressions from the PMPs, however, suggest there were no statistical increased costs associated with the IPM routes. Task Data for IPM versus IPM routes. The three Team Member pest management firms provided an entire Traditional and an entire IPM route to the grant for throughout the year. Traditional treatment involved the amount of pyrethroid insecticide they used in At least 50% less pyrethroid insecticide was used at each residence on the IPM route. The PMPs customized treatment practice according to their experience, expertise and business practice. Service technicians were mandated to use 50% less pyrethroid insecticide on the IPM routes. The two types of service were implemented throughout the ant season, from May through December. Time on job, cost, types of pesticides used, frequency of application, customer 6

7 comments or complaints, and other pertinent data were collected for every account. Because data was collected for each application and residence, thousands of data points were collected by each company. Data for 2008 was entered electronically on Excel spreadsheets and provided in November to the PI. Those data have been collated and most analyzed and shared with the Team. An example of the data collected is shown in Appendix I. Task Pest ant IPM website. A working, interactive pest ant PMA website devoted to the project has been developed and is on-line at Content for the website is being managed by Dr. Cheryl Wilen, U.C. Cooperative Extension, with the assistance of the Team and others in U.C. IPM (UCIPM). Content for inclusion on the website have been constantly refined and upgraded, with input and links being suggested by the Team. Task Conferences and seminars. The the IPM Urban Pest Ant Management PMA program was unveiled early in 2008 and its goals and accomplishments in terms of reducing ryrethroid pesticide use was presented formally at the Urban Pest Management Conference at U.C. Riverside in March Over 200 pest management professionals attended. It was also presented formally at DPR's annual training event in San Diego in 2008, as well as in 2009 at an International IPM Conference in Portland and at a national PMP IPM meeting in Dallas (The Green Conference). The program has been announced and discussed at training workshops and seminars developed by Team Partner Target Specialty Products. A brief presentation was made at the annual convention of the California Pest Control Association (PCOC). As a result, several PMPs have expressed a willingness to embrace reduced-pesticide/reduced pyrethroid strategies and to become affiliate or cooperating members of the pest ant PMA. Task Team meetings. The Team has met at least quarterly to discuss strategies and results. Three Affiliate PMPs from northern, central, and southern California accepted an invitation to participate in the program and to implement reduced pyrethroid ant control strategies on dedicated routes in The Affiliates now attend each meeting, and will provide data from their routes as do Team PMPs. To summarize, the following Tasks, Milestones or Deliverables/Outcomes have been achieved during the period covered by this semi-annual report: 1. Grant process review, schedule, timeline, tasks, and organization - Done. At each Team meeting, held at least quarterly. 2. Conference presentations - Done. At various conferences and seminars by Dr. John Kabashima, Dr. Michael K. Rust, Dr. Les Greenberg, and Donald A. Reierson. 3. Implement IPM - Done.
