For 23 years and through four editions, "Urban Pest Management in Australia" has been the major reference work for Australian pest control operators. This fifth edition has been extensively revised to support the constantly evolving pest management industry. It features an accessible new format, fully updated chapters, additional color plates and extra content, including a new section on putting pest control into practice. Ion Staunton draws on his 50 years of industry knowledge to bring Gerozisis and Hadlington's pest management 'bible' to a new generation of technicians.

    Comments about Urban Pest Management in Australia:

    I am a writer - of books - and I found this book easy to understand and use. The authors had a good idea, and it was needed, as there were not a lot on the market teaching about timber pests in Australia.
