Part 6 (Chapter 7) Introduction to Urban and Industrial Integrated Pest Management

  1. Because some species are good [a], cockroaches are well known for moving to new areas via "hitchhiking".

  2. Female cockroaches which are carrying egg cases are said to be [a].

  15. Cockroach control
    a.)can usually be accomplished without using insecticides

    b.)can be accomplished by using the crack and crevice treatment method

    c.)with a compressed air sprayer can best be accomplished with a fan type nozzle

    d.)cannot involve the use of insecticides in food processing and handling areas
    b.)can be accomplished by using the crack and crevice treatment method
  16. Good sanitation
    a.)is the first aspect of the treatment phase in cockroach management

    b.)helps to eliminate food, moisture, and harborage available to the cockroach

    c.)alone can substantially reduce German cockroach population size

    d.)places stress on cockroaches
    a.)is the first aspect of the treatment phase in cockroach management

    b.)helps to eliminate food, moisture, and harborage available to the cockroach

    d.)places stress on cockroaches
  17. Insect growth regulators (IGRs)
    a.)are not useful in cockroach management programs

    b.)are most effective when used in conjunction with conventional residual insecticides

    c.)are recommended for outdoor use against cockroaches

    d.)restrict the high reproductive potential of cockroach populations
    b.)are most effective when used in conjunction with conventional residual insecticides

    d.)restrict the high reproductive potential of cockroach populations
  18. In German cockroach management,
    a.)the key is to only focus on one of the management tools available

    b.)thoroughness is important in inspection

    c.)greater levels of control is achievable since the late 1980's

    d.)dusts are one of the most effective types of residual insecticide
    b.)thoroughness is important in inspection

    c.)greater levels of control is achievable since the late 1980's

    d.)dusts are one of the most effective types of residual insecticide
  19. The following are residual insecticide applications recognized by the EPA
    a.)spot

    b.)space treatment

    c.)general

    d.)crack and crevice
    a.)spot

    c.)general

    d.)crack and crevice
  20. Cockroaches
    a.)generally prefer a warm, moist environment

    b.)have gradual metamorphosis

    c.)have piercing-sucking mouthparts

    d.)are not active at night
    a.)generally prefer a warm, moist environment

    b.)have gradual metamorphosis
  21. Dark brown or nearly black; females have rudimentary wings called wing pads; adult females are 1.25 inches long and males are 1 inch in length
    oriental cockroach
  22. Uniformly mahogany brown color; about 1 inch long
    smoky brown cockroach
  23. Two dark longitudinal stripes on the pronotum; adults are ½ to 5/8 inches long
    German cockroach
  24. Two lighter transverse bands across the base of the wings and abdomen; adults are about ½ inch long
    Brown banded cockroach
  25. Dark brown with the sides of the thorax and front half of the wings margined with yellow; about 2/3 inch long
    Woods cockroach
  26. Reddish brown with yellow border on the upper surface of the pronotum; adults are 1.5 inches or more in length

  27. Provide two (2) similarities of indoor and outdoor Green Pest Management options for cockroaches for indoor infestations
    • Placing emphasis on inspection and monitoring
    • Boric acid
    • Dust bait formulations
    • Desiccating dusts
  28. Give four (4) reasons why German cockroaches are so successful as pests.
    • large # of eggs per egg capsule
    • fast development
    • female carries the egg capsule
    • smaller than other cockroaches (especially nymphs)
    • resistant to insecticides
    • fast to mature, high reproductive potential
  29. Why are crack and crevice treatments usually best for German cockroach control? (6)
    • - insects spend a lot of time there
    • - safer, more controlled application
    • - less environmental contamination
    • - less risk to nontargets
    • - lower cost
    • - insecticide is protected and last longer
