Bugs Be Gone: Pest control in homes and other buildings

By Dr. Gary W. Bennett
Price: $29.99

Many insects, and some of their close relatives, commonly invade homes and other buildings, annoying the human occupants, damaging the structures, eating or contaminating the food, inflicting painful bites and stings, and transmitting debilitating and deadly diseases to the people and their pets. This practical illustrated guide is broken down by pest types (cockroaches) or by where they may be found (food pests) or by the harm they cause (stinging pests). Each chapter begins with a summary of the pests in that chapter, along with how-to-do-it information on how to get rid of pests in an environmentally friendly manner. Quite often this means calling a professional pest management company to eliminate the problem and to assist you in preventing the pest problem from occurring again. More details are presented in the chapter texts that follow the chapter summary. These details are provided for consumers and professional pest managers who want to research each pest and its control in greater depth. Bottom line – Bugs Be Gone is designed to help consumers eliminate pests in homes and other buildings and prevent their return.

The Cockroach Combat Manual II

By Dr. Austin M. Frishman
Price: $39.95

“In the early 80’s we were evaluating a new cockroach control product in a high-rise housing project. Cockroach populations were high even though the apartment we were in was squeaky clean. The three small children that shared a twin bed there looked different to me but I wasn’t sure why. Dr. Frishman pointed out that they didn’t have any eye brows or lashes and then he exposed thousands of roaches hiding behind the head board. Some things you never forget. In my view, having Paul Bello, an industry expert himself with years of practical experience, team up with Dr. Cockroach makes The Cockroach Combat Manual II a must read because cockroach control is deserving of our best efforts Gordon Morrison Business Manager Vector Control and Farm Hygiene, Bayer Crop Science. Years ago, as a young sales representative for Van Waters & Rogers, Doc Frishman taught me the value and necessity of knowing your enemy the cockroach. After these many years it remains imperative that we fully understand how to deal with the resilient cockroach. We owe it to ourselves as industry professionals, as well to our customers, to broaden our base of knowledge. In The Cockroach Combat Manual II, Doc Frishman and his former student Paul Bello, also a renowned industry expert, share their expertise for the benefit of readers everywhere. It is a must have book for industry professionals Jim Delaney Director Central Region/Canada Univar Environmental Sciences. Doc Frishman and Paul Bello serve as our resident authorities on cockroach management. This reference guide embodies their cockroach management mantra – One is too many – and is chock full of practical intel on the latest control trends, technologies and techniques. PMPs looking to win the war against this pervasive public health pest should read, and practice, the advice in Cockroach Combat Manual II.”
