This new volume presents a history of the development of chemical pest control and the regulations to monitor their use. It also looks to the future with an examination of the consequences of regulations and their influence in shaping the pesticide market and the future role of chemical pest
control. Particular attention is given to reregistration and the ensuing controversy, which requires that each of 30,000 to 40,000 products on the market must be reviewed. Perspectives from parties on both sides of the controversy that reregistration has engendered are presented.
