Cat fleas are the most important ectoparasite of cats and dogs worldwide. During the past ten years, topical and oral applications of insecticides such as fipronil, imidacloprid, lufenuron and, most… Expand
Managing social insects of urban importance.
Social insects have a tremendous economic and social impact on urban communities. The rapid urbanization of the world has dramatically increased the incidence of urban pests. Human commerce has… Expand
Toxicity, Uptake, and Transfer Efficiency of Fipronil in Western Subterranean Termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
Abstract The potential horizontal transfer of nonrepellent termiticides has become an important paradigm to control termites in recent years. In this study, 14C-radiolabeled fipronil was used in a… Expand

The biology, ecology, and management of the cat flea.
The cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis felis, is the most important ectoparasite of domestic cats and dogs worldwide. In addition to its annoyance to pets and humans, C. felis felis is responsible for… Expand
Effects of liquid insecticide baits on Argentine ants in California's coastal vineyards
Abstract Liquid ant baits were evaluated for control of Argentine ants, Linepithema humile (Mayr), and associated mealybug pests ( Pseudococcus species) in commercial vineyards. In all trials, liquid… Expand
The Argentine ant - a significant invasive species in agricultural, urban and natural environments
Toxicity, repellency, and transfer of chlorfenapyr against western subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
Chlorfenapyr is a slow-acting insecticide against western subterranean termite, Reticulitermes hesperus Banks, when applied to sand. The LD50 at day 7 for workers is 29.98 ng per termite and… Expand
Preference of Food Particle Size Among Several Urban Ant Species
Abstract Appropriate particle size may be a critical characteristic for effective granular ant baits. We examined the particle size preference of six species of pest ants to an anchovy-based bait. We… Expand
