  An Experiment in Arboriculture and Mosquito Control
There are approximately 3000 species of mosquito in the world, about 200 in theUnited States and about 60 species are found where I work in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Many of these mosquito species are not only annoying biters of humans or animals but are also disease vectors.
  German Cockroach Control through IPM
This article makes recommendations based upon a successful German cockroach control program implemented by the author in a commercial animal housing facility. Using an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach the situation has been brought under control and the roach population is being maintained at acceptable levels.
  An IPM plan for the Control of Phtyophagous Mites on Musoid Plants
The control of spider mites (Tetranychidae) on Musoid plants is challenging in any large collection of ornamental plants. The colonization of Musoid plants by spider mites normally begins on the oldest or senescent leaves.
  An IPM program for growing tropical plants using cultivation techniques
When an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is evaluated, the use of beneficial insects and disease-resistant plants are usually acknowledged as the main tools of such a program. Cultivation methods, such as controlled watering, pruning, and mulching, are not covered very well in texts about IPM (Yepsen 1985, Horn 1988, Olkowski et al 1991).
  Practical IPM for the South Florida Homeowner

Releasing beneficial insects, alternating toxic chemicals with more benign ones to reduce insect immunity, and other elaborate programs are being utilized by commercial operations.
