Special Issue "A Review of Household and Structural Pest Management with an Emphasis on Alternative Control Methods"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2021).
Interests: bed bugs; odorous house ants
Concerns about potential contamination of water sources and insecticide resistance have led researchers to evaluate alternative pest control strategies, such as essential oils and other biorationals, that are less persistent in the environment and provide different modes of action to overcome resistance. In this special edition of Insects alternative pest management strategies and innovative inspection/detection techniques for household and structural pests (cockroaches, pest ants, termites, flies, pantry pests, fleas, and brown marmorated stink bug) are reviewed.
