Researchers in California tested several common insecticide baits used for management of German cockroaches (Blattella germanica) and found evidence of resistance to all but one bait in several field-caught populations.
Monitoring for cockroach infestations in homes and buildings is hindered by a lack of effective and practical attractants, but researchers at Rutgers University say a mix of extracts from apple and blueberry has proven highly effective in lab and field settings and could lead to more successful cockroach integrated pest management programs.
Battling Bed Bugs and German Cockroaches Requires Cooperation and Continuous Integrated Pest Management Efforts
A new paper shows the benefits of building-wide IPM for reducing indoor pests in low-income, multi-family housing.
In honor of Mother's Day, catch up on some recent research highlighting insect mothers that go to awe-inspiring lengths to care for their babies.
