Ask the Bugman, subtitled Environmentally Safe Ways to Control Household Pests.
“You open the kitchen cabinet, reach for the jar of peanut butter, and there on its top are mice droppings. What’s the safest means to be rid of the mice? In Ask the Bugman, Board Certified Entomologist Richard Fagerlund offers advice on pest control drawn from answers to commonly asked questions in his nationally distributed newspaper column.
With over thirty years experience in pest control, Fagerlund offers suggestions for controlling nearly fifty common (and not so common) pests found in and around homes. The questions are divided into categories including disruptive pests, destructive pests, biters and stingers, reptiles and rodents, and garden and household bugs. But what separates the Bugman from other such books is its environmental ethic, which is carefully laid out in the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
