Urban pests are common all over the world. These include cockroaches, flies, mosquitoes, bed bugs, ticks, fleas, ants, termites, rodents and few more. These pests thrive in human structures, particularly in places where there is food, warmth and place to hide. Urban pests are the leading causes of illnesses due to allergies, bites, food contamination and phobia. They also harm humans by bringing significant damage to property and structure. Consequently, knowledge and training in this field is vital for professional and trainee pest managers. However, most practitioners lack resources and time to undertake a comprehensive university training course to gain knowledge. This book is specifically intended to provide an aid to such candidates following university and higher education programmes. The book contains 500 multiple-choice questions (and answers) set at three levels - foundation, intermediate and advanced - and grouped into 12 major topic areas: The history of urban entomology Household pests Cockroaches Flies Mosquitoes Bed bugs Termites Sporadic pests Stored product pests Vertebrate pests * Methodology in pest control * Pesticides and pesticide formulations * Use of pesticides in urban pest control * Application equipment The book is produced in a convenient format so that it can be used at any time in any place. It allows the reader to learn and revise the subject and much more. The structure of the book allows the study of one topic area at a time, progressing through simple questions to those that are more demanding. Many of the questions require students to use their practical knowledge to interpret information provided.
