  10. 10. WHATTO LOOK FOR: • The four types associated with damage to library materials: the American cockroach, the Australian cockroach, the Oriental cockroach, and the German cockroach • All four species have large mouth parts and a fondness for starch, thus book cloth and paper are especially vulnerable • Cockroach damage can be recognized by multiple light patches on book cloth surfaces—sometimes down to the thread—and ragged edges on paper leaves • Cockroach droppings can also be detected in the feeding area in the form of pellets

  18. 18. WHATTO LOOK FOR: • There are more than a quarter million species of beetles • The dermestidae family of beetles (commonly referred to as skin beetles) has been known to damage leather bindings • These beetles are also called larder beetle, hide or leather, carpet beetle and khapra • Some damage books directly by eating paper and binding materials, but it is their larvae that cause the most damage

  23. 23. Termites
  24. 24. WHATTO LOOK FOR: • Termites play a vital role in nature.They break down dead wood and other cellulose materials.This is helpful in the ecosystem and the balance of nature . When they attack buildings - they are a pest and cause over $5 billion in damages in the U.S. each year! • Termites are usually cryptic & don’t come out into the open - makes them difficult to detect • Termites are mistaken for flying ants • Termites build protective tunnels (of their saliva & fecal matter) – found near foundations of infested buildings • Dry wood termites enter buildings by swarming in the spring.

  31. 31. WHATTO LOOK FOR: • Silverfish are wingless insects that are silver in color. Growing no more than 3/4" long as adults, their bodies are thicker in the front, then taper off toward the back like a teardrop • Although they cannot fly, silverfish run quickly if disturbed. Silverfish live up to eight years of age, according toTexas A&M.These critters are nocturnal creatures that reproduce quickly • Infestation - irregular or notched damage to paper or book • Fecal pellets (small, dark & loose) • Yellow stains on paper or fabric • Small irregular scrapings on book
