Major changes in ecology, climate and human behaviour have favoured the proliferation of urban pests. Alarmingly, the dramatic rise in urban sprawl has led to city suburbs becoming the natural habitat of ticks, rodents and other pests.
These changes make timely a new analysis of the effects of present-day urban pests on health. Public Health Significance of Urban Pests identifies the public health risk posed by various pests and suggests appropriate prevention and control measures.
This book also formulates policy options for all levels of decision-making on the future management of pests and pest-related diseases.
