Common Household Pests: A Homeowner's Guide to Detection and Control is a companion book to the very successful Termites and Borers: A homeowner's Guide to Detection and Control (also written by Phillip Hadlington and Christine Marsden). It follows the same practical, plain-English approach that has made its companion so popular.

Common Household Pests explores non-chemical as well as chemical means of control; includes many practical 'what to do" sections; promotes strategies of prevention as a first measure to achieve control; answers common householder questions about domestic pests; and it helps people to identify harmless and useful insects and spiders, as well as the disease-spreading and dangerous ones.

This guide also looks at important issues, such as what to consider when buying pesticides and the effects of pesticides on pets.

Pests covered include:
  • ants,
  • cockroaches,
  • fleas,
  • flies,
  • mosquitoes,
  • rodents,
  • spiders,
  • ticks and mites,
  • bed bugs,
  • carpet beetles,
  • food moths,
  • lice,
