About this book

How do I get rid of ants in my house? Do ultrasonic flea collars work? How can I protect my house against termites? Can I control insects without using insecticides? The authors of the popular and informative What Bit Me? Identifying Hawai'i's Stinging and Biting Insects and Their Kin answer these and other questions in this long-awaited standard reference on Hawai'i's household "bugs". What's Bugging Me? helps you identify those bees, spiders, termites, beetles, silverfish, and cockroaches that may be present in your home and offers effective strategies for dealing with them. A range of anti pest weapons - not just chemicals - is given, emphasizing a modern "integrated control" approach. What's Bugging Me? teaches techniques for prevention, early detection, and monitoring of pest problems. It recommends specific methods that target the pest, not methods that merely poison the environment. Many inexpensive home remedies are suggested. In everyday language accessible to homeowners and apartment dwellers, the authors authoritatively provide a wealth of information that will also benefit pest control operators, landscapers, builders, and entomology professionals.
