This app is quite disappointing. Years ago I paid a hefty fee - around $25 - for the NPMA field guide for iPhone. It was just like the book. It was comprehensive and included a wide variety of both common and obscure pests. For each pest it had clear pictures, biology and behavior, and detailed control strategies. For some reason, this app is no longer available on the App Store and has been replaced with this shell of an application. It omits common pests such as Smokeybrown roaches. Many of the pictures are so blurry that they're useless for identification purposes (can't see the nodes on ants). The information is neither detailed nor comprehensive, giving only a brief overview of each pest. NPMA, bring back the good app. There was nothing wrong with it. I wish I could get my $25 back, but more so I wish I could get the actual
Field Guide on my phone again. This app doesn't even come close to it.
Just downloaded the updated version and it works great on new iPhone platforms. I have a 4s and it works perfectly. Just in time for bug season!
The app is great for identifying pests on the fly and finding a pest control professional who can help in a bind.
