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 Marty Whitford North Coast Media Editorial Director & Publisher of Pest Management

About the Author:

Austin M. Frishman, PhD AMF Pest Management Services, Inc. Boca Raton, FL Dr. Austin M. Frishman has dedicated most of his adult life to combating cockroaches. As a pest-management technician, he was profoundly influenced by the persistence of these pests and their adverse effects on humans more than fifty-two years ago. His accomplishments and awards in the field of cockroach and pest management are numerous. In the 1970s he worked with American Cyanamid as the lead researcher in heading the team that would develop the industry's first successful cockroach bait. The retail product was launched as Combat while the professional product was launched as MaxForce. Both products still enjoy a significant role in their respective markets. Baiting for German cockroach control became a significant change for the professional pest-management industry. With baiting, flushing cockroaches is eliminated, which helps prevent asthmatic attacks in children at infested locations. Working with certain manufacturers, he introduced the first sticky trap monitors to the pest-management industry, which became a fundamental step in detection and monitoring for pests. Sticky traps have been used to monitor for cockroaches and other pests ever since. Two separate scholarships in entomology have been established in his name. The Pi Chi Omega Frishman Scholarship provides support to entomology students from this national fraternity of college graduates in urban pest management. The Dr. Austin M. Frishman Endowment Scholarship at Purdue University was announced with great surprise in January 1994 when scholarship founder Paul Bello presented Dr. Frishman with a commemorative scholarship plaque at the Purdue Annual Conference. On National Geographic Television, Doc was featured as Dr. Cockroach. In this show, Dr. Frishman led a team of pest-control technicians through a cockroach cleanout of a commercial kitchen where thousands of cockroaches had taken up residence.

Review:

Dr. Austin Frishman and Paul Bello have combined their vast knowledge and experience to author one of the most informative, practical manuals for the professional pest control industry that has ever been published. I would tag this book as a must read book for anyone dealing with cockroaches at any level in our industry.  Tommy D. ReevesVice PresidentOldham Chemicals Company, Inc.Memphis, TN --Tommy D.
