About the University

PMU was created as a cooperative effort between the University of Florida, the Florida pest management industry, and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS), the regulators of the pest control industry in Florida.

Our goal is to both teach and demonstrate all aspects of home and commercial pest control, providing trainees with both improved knowledge and practical experience.

All classes are taught by faculty of UF/IFAS, DACS and leaders in the pest management industry. Everyone understands that increased professionalism and improved skills translate to superior job performance, increased profit and fewer customer problems.
