Urban entomology is the study of insects and mites that affect people and their property. This site is a collection of .pdf bulletins, factsheets and images of urban pests, their biology and, where appropriate, control. Emphasis is always on the least toxic approach to control.
This site contains information about using pesticides. Pesticides can be dangerous if used improperly or carelessly. Always follow label instructions. The pesticide product label is the final word on the safe and legal use of pesticides. Questions about pesticide toxicity can be explored at the National Pesticide Information Center (NPIC). Control suggestions are intended for users in the state of Oregon, USA. Others should consult with local experts before relying solely on this information. Note that many of the chemicals mentioned in these documents are not registered for use by homeowners and can only legally be applied by a licenced professional.
