The Bible of pest control! Great book and very insightful. My only complaint is that many times it is very vague on what products to use to address a situation. Other than that, it's excellent!

My only criticism of this book is the IPM perspective. The author(s) take the IPM approach to the ultimate extreme, insisting that PMPs should NEVER do treatments based on predetermined schedules. That's unrealistic. The industry is led by large pest management operations, many earning millions each year from regularly scheduled pesticide applications. The idea that a small or mid-size pest operation can compete with these large operations by doing fewer treatments for more money per treatment is absurd. One company will solve your problem for $80-100 paid 4-6 times a year and guarantee a pest-free home. The other wants $250 for each visit to solve your problem because they're going to be monitoring and strategically treating with the bare minimum of chemicals. The average American will choose the $80-100 regularly scheduled treatment option. In many parts of the US, PMPs know how long the products last and how often they need to be applied to achieve desired results, and that's the reason for regularly scheduled applications. The author(s) fail to recognize this.

But still, it's a good resource. Highly recommended.
