The rise of biological control techniques and integrated pest management (IPM), and their successful application in agricultural systems, has attracted many entomologists to attempt the crossover of these methods into household and industrial environments. Covering all the major groups of insects and other arthropods considered urban pests, this reference provides the reader with an up-to-date and comprehensive review of basic biology, behavior, distribution and, most importantly, control methodology.
