Designed for those pursuing their Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) certification, IPM for the Urban Professional: A Study Guide for the Associate Certified Entomologist also serves as a comprehensive introduction to the concepts of integrated pest management (IPM); basic classification, identification points, and pest biology; an outline of pesticides concepts; and an overview of important safety and regulatory issues. The book is more comprehensive than an introductory overview, but does not get bogged down in the details on specific management techniques for every structural pest. Its co-authors are Dr. Michael Merchant, BCE, and Richard Levine, public affairs officer of the Entomological Society of America (ESA), which published the book.
IPM for the Urban Professional is designed to be used in conjunction with the National Pest Management Association’s NPMA Field Guide as a comprehensive way for users to prepare for their ACE examination. Written in a light and conversational tone, it will be widely used and adopted by newcomers to the industry as well as long-time professionals.
As noted in the foreword by PMP magazine columnist and Hall of Famer Dr. Austin Frishman, BCE-Emeritus, “This is a must-read for anyone in this industry, whether they are going for their ACE or not” (click here to read Dr. Frishman’s full foreword).
The book will be available in October and will have special introductory pricing through December 2015. Bulk discounts are available.
