Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Classes for General House Pest Control (GHP), Termite and Core     



by Dr. John Warner, Ph.D. Entomology, University of Florida


Welcome to, your Source for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the Florida Pest Control Industry. 

Because this website is new, we are only offering a few basic classes right now for General House Pest Control (GHP) and Termite categories, along with Core units. We plan to be offering more classes soon.

These classes are offered by me, Dr. John Warner, PhD entomology from the University of Florida. I have been working at the University of Florida, Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center (FLREC) for 20 years. I have owned and operated a pest control company since 2000, and worked for both universities and companies in Urban and Agricultural pest management since 1975.  The classes that I am offering at reflect my education, research and experience in the pest control industry. I hope that you will find these classes both educational and interesting. If you have questions or suggestions for future topics for classes, you can reach me at

Since we are new, the classes and their corresponding CEUs are presently being offered at discounted prices (see below)


About Our Classes

Our new classes allow you to pay online and download your attendance certificate from within the course. They do require that you create a log-in, but once the account has been created you can use it for all your CEUs...forever!

NOTE: If anything is not working as it should, be patient and contact me at CEUHomeInfo@gmail.comAll will be made right! 

You can choose to take a class that you have already taken in a previous year as a review; you will get valid CEUs.


Class length:

50 minutes x 2 CEUs = 100 minutes for each class.

In other words, a 2-CEU class will take (by law) a minimum of 100 minutes to complete. You are free to take a longer time; there is no rush, but you will not be able to take the quiz until you complete the 100 minute minimum.


If you need to exit a module before completion, you will be able to resume where you left off by returning to the website, to the class you selected and click on: RESUME THE CLASS. We recommend completing the class in one session. Bookmark this website to facilitate your return. Contact me at for any issues. I will reply ASAP.



We are offering each 2-unit class for only $20 (after the discount). Most other online classes are more expensive! The actual cost for each 2-unit class is $25, but when you go to the payment page, after entering your credit card info, use the following coupon code (no spaces):     FIRSTCODE

GHP - The Bigheaded Ant: biology and control

The bigheaded ant (BHA, Pheidole megacephala) has been a pest in southern Florida for many years, and according to reports by pest control operators, it is becoming an even more pervasive nuisance as it displaces other ants, such as the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta). This class describes the BHA, where it lives, its life cycle, the concerns it raises with homeowners, and control methods.

GHP - White-Footed Ant Biology and Control

The white-footed ant (WFA), Technomyrmex difficilis Forel, an invasive species from SE Asia, has become an important pest ant in Florida. This class examines WFA biology and control practices to assist PCOs to identify and control this pest ant. Similar ants found in Florida are described to help avoid confusing them with the WFA. You must complete 100 minutes in order to be able to download the Attendance Form.

Termite - Preparing for Wood-destroying Organism Inspections

The basic concepts of doing an inspection for wood-destroying organisms (WDO) will be discussed, including identifying and distinguishing between drywood and subterranean termites, and beetles. Safety equipment and other tools needed to perform inspections will be examined. Appropriate principles and techniques for thorough termite inspections will be covered with actual examples. This class is an introduction and will only cover the general aspects of a WDO inspection, not the specifics of a “Wood-Destroying Organisms Inspection Report, Sec. 482.226, Florida Statutes,” which will be covered in a future class. You must complete 100 minutes in order to be able to download the Attendance Form.

The report is broken down into sections and each section is examined in detail, explaining what the inspector needs to do. This class also examines who can legally do WDO reports, the training they need, and all other requirements.
