Dr. Reid Ipser, Ph.D.
Pesticide Families, Modes of Action and Overcoming Resistance
Resistance often has a direct relation to the pesticide families we choose to use. Pesticide families, in turn, are separated by their modes of action. By understanding this dynamic, we can employ several tactics beyond traditional IPM in order to overcome the resistance phenomenon.
After his graduate studies, Dr. Reid Ipser worked as a regional technical director and operations manager for Home Team Pest Defense and later successfully worked in product development formulation for Waterbury Companies and FMC. Reid joined Nisus Corporation in 2015 as its Director of Technical Services where he is responsible for handling customer inquiries, training, presentations, content development and field support for sales. Dr. Ipser has more than 12 years of practical experience in the pest control industry and holds multiple degrees in Entomology, including a Ph.D. from the University of Georgia.
