Understanding and Controlling the German Cockroach
The German cockroach is considered to be the most resilient and ecologically important insect pest found in homes, apartments, and commercial facilities in the United States and across the world. This book expertly provides up-to-the-minute information about the behavior and biology of this pest--including taxonomy, distribution, morphology, and genetics--as it may relate to effective technologies for its control. Building on information presented piecemeal in books and articles appearing over more than 50 years, the book features over 1,200 references related to the German cockroach, most published within the last year. With contributions from the top experts, the book will be invaluable to students and practitioners of entomology and pest management.
