This electronic text is provided to the educational community and the public as a resource on information pertaining to the types of pests which may be found in the urban environment and home. The information presented is a reasonably faithful reproduction of the material originally published in 1975. Recommendations for control of urban pests with chemicals were relevant only at the time of publication. Recent legislation has changed many of the control recommendations particularly chemical control suggested by this text. Many chemicals are no longer legal for use, on the market, and/or no longer registered for use by non-licensed personnel.

DO NOT ASSUME THAT CONTROL METHODS ARE THE SAME. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL PEST CONTROL ADVISOR OR CONTACT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA FOR CURRENT RECOMMENDATIONS.
