|Description||Turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a mobile field guide to urban pests with iPest1. It is designed to be a handy guide for anyone dealing with urban pests including homeowners, renters, pest management professionals, naturalists, IPM coordinators, building managers, teachers, and students. You will find that this guide is a practical way to identify and educate others about common urban pests. iPest1 contains four sections covering pest cockroaches, filth breeding flies, occasional invaders, and urban pest and wildlife droppings. A searchable menu groups pests by type and allows you to quickly find your pest of interest. A Favorites option allows you to save common pests for swift reference. The guide provides high-quality color photographs with marked identifying characteristics and a silhouette of the actual size of the main pest species. The photos detail the identifying characteristics of the pests with clarity and are provided in three size options, fit to the screen, actual size in silhouette form, and an expanded view. Images may also be zoomed in and out to reveal detail such as wing venation, body segmentation or setae. Many of the pests and occasional invaders have additional photos of the pests in their natural environment, and the Urban Pest and Wildlife Droppings section provides you with an image of the droppings in addition to a background photo of the pest animal. Each pest has a Facts section providing information about habitat, biology, behavior and distribution within the US. iPest1 is a standalone application, so does not require an Internet connection to access the pest ID guide. This makes it a useful tool for anyone working in the field.
