This pictorial guide will help homemakers identify the pests that are commonly found around the outside and inside of their home or workplace. The objective is to provide practical information on pest biology and habits, and an accurate illustration of each pest. This book also guides the reader through pests inspections, both inside and outside, to determine if pests are present. The first step in controlling pests is an inspection of the site to determine their location and abundance. This information helps determine the chemical and non-chemical control methods that can be used. Without a thorough inspection, control may be limited or short-lived, and time and material wasted. The initial inspection can provide information on conditions that are favorable to the existing pest or others that may move in later. Prevention is usually based on making non-chemical changes to the habitat and these are based on knowledge of the food and harborage requirements of insect and rodent pests. The information and pictures in this guide book add to the mission of PF Harris of providing homemakers with the most effective and economic material to control household and wood-infesting insects.
