Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The vast majority of people consider it a high priority to minimize the extent of their interaction with the insect world. Homes are sealed, sprayed, and kept meticulously clean so as to reduce the probability that they will be invaded by insects; similarly, bodies are bathed, hair is shampooed, and clothing regularly washed in order to eliminate any unwanted contact with six-legged life forms. In the overwhelmingly vast majority of daily conversations, insects are conspicuous in their absence; those rare conversations in which insects feature prominently are generally carried out in guarded tones, often with a touch of embarrassment.


Review:

"A tremendously good read, packed with information that will appeal equally to biologists and laypersons, students, and teachers....Newcomers will be fascinated and intrigued. For old hands at the game, this kind of book reminds us of why we took up entomology in the first place and still find the subject so engrossing."
