The document provides a compilation of test methods that appear adequate for purposes of evaluating the effectiveness of pesticides against invertebrate pests of premises and stored products. The methods cited are not intended to exclude other valid procedures but for proprietary or other reasons are not available for reference. Similarly there is no intent to exclude new methods or improvements of current methods that may become available. The procedures presented herein primarily include methods for the invertebrate control agents considered as conventional chemical pesticides. Repellents, attractants, growth regulators, pheromones, etc., are not included unless they have been used over the years and there exists a substantial number of published results in the open literature.
