Dr. Austin M. Frishman

Dr. Austin M. Frishman, Ph.D. is a world renowned pest management professional and a pioneer urban and industrial pest management consultant. Those who know him call him Doc or Doc Frishman. He began his pest management career working as a technician in the Southern Catskill Mountain region of New York. He attended Cornell University and went on to Purdue where he earned his doctorate in entomology.

Doc accepted a position at SUNY Farmingdale Campus where he headed the Pest Control Technology Program. His former students include Dr. Bobby Corrigan, Michael Goldstien of Victor/Woodstream, Pat Hottel of McCloud Services, Lynn Frank of Suburban Exterminating, and many others. As a former student and founder of the Dr. Austin M. Frishman Endowment Scholarship at Purdue University, I am fortunate to have had the opportunity and honor of being associated with Doc Frishman.

In October 2013, Doc and I will have co-authored The Cockroach Combat Manual II. Select Frishman articles of the past appear in the Appendix I: Classic Frishman of the book however, there is no way that we could include all of Doc's many columns and articles published over these past many years. As such, we are proud to present some of these additional articles and columns here for the benefit of all.
