This important and up-to-date electronic book on CD-ROM provides a complete guide to the emerging pest threat, bed bugs - known as Cimex lectularius. Reports indicate that infestations are occurring throughout the United States after a fifty-year hiatus; increased foreign travel and the growing resistance of these pests to pesticides are cited as possible factors in the explosion of the bed bug population. This comprehensive guide provides essential information about the identification, prevention, control, and eradication of bed bugs, with authoritative reference information from the CDC, EPA, and National Institutes of Health. There is complete coverage of all aspects of the bed bug problem, with extensive material from the EPA's National Bed Bug Summit. Contents include: Bed Bug Overview; CDC and EPA Bed Bug Control Statement; Top Ten Bed Bug Tips; EPA's National Bed Bug Summit; CDC: Bed Bug Infestation in an Urban Environment; CDC Laboratory Identification of Bed Bugs; CDC Report on Bedbugs and Healthcare Associated Dermatitis; Clinical Trials Involving Bedbugs; Impetigo; and EPA Citizen's Guide to Pest Control and Pesticide Safety. There are answers to questions such as: Should I be concerned about bed bug bites? Is there more than one type of bed bug that will bite humans? How do bed bugs get into dwellings? What are the things I can do to prevent bed bugs from getting into my home? What do I look for when I suspect a bed bug infestation? What can I do to get rid of bed bugs in my home? There is information on non-chemical control measures; bed bug biology; the role of government agencies and the public in bed bug control; research; Pest Control Operator; Integrated Pest Management; safe use of pesticides; public health issues; and much more. There is an extensive supplementary file with details about the EPA and pesticides. The CD-ROM is packed with over 31,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Macintosh systems.
