This new handbook provides a full but concise guide to the key pest species that commonly infest historic houses, and solutions for dealing with them. It enables readers to spot signs of pest infestation, identify the pests responsible, suggest strategies for the removal of the pest and treatment options for infested items and structures, and give clear guidance on long-term strategies to prevent pests from returning. The book is in two main sections: a handy identification section with large, close-up photographs which provides an overview of the environmental conditions where each pest species is likely to flourish, the damage caused and strategies for prevention and treatment and a more detailed pest management section with comprehensive advice about the main ways to prevent infestation as well as appropriate treatment methods.
