Frances Phil Hadlington AOM is a consultant in pest control and tree care who enjoys legendary status in Australia's termite-control industry. He retired from a distinguished career in research as Forest Entomologist in New South Wales as well as the first teacher of Pest Control in NSW TAFE. There is probably no person in Australia who has played a more significant and influential role in educating both the nation's pest management industry and also ordinary homeowners, who know of him through his seminars and his many technical and consumer books, including Australian Termites and other common timber pests; An introduction to Australian insects; Common Household Pests and the standard industry textbook, Urban Pest Management. In 2000 Phil was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his long and consistently excellent contribution to the Australian community directly, and indirectly, through his education of the pest management industry. Ion Staunton was a pest management technician before he became the founding secretary of the NSW and national pest management associations. Like Phil, Ion is a seasoned co-author and has some four previous books to his credit. He also wrote and illustrated the 'Pest Profile' brochure series published by the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association. Ion recently invented a windowed termite monitor and treatment station that for the first time allows homeowners to be vitally involved in reducing the threat from nests which surround their homes.
