9780824814922: What Bit Me?: Identifying Hawai'I's Stinging and Biting Insects and Their Kin

A clear, colorfully illustrated guide to the spiders, mites, centipedes, beetles, mosquitoes, fleas, wasps, ants, and other critters that can plague people in Hawai'i and similar environments. Includes information on the history, life cycle, structure, and venoms and toxins known for each pest species. Travel agents might make you pay for your ticket before looking at pictures of, for example, bed bugs feeding on a bed inhabitant, but knowledge of which pests are nuisances and which are really dangerous is invaluable. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Review:

"Anyone who owns this book is likely to refer to it time and time again. . . . If you get stung by a black widow, see your doctor. If you fall victim to a centipede, tough it out with an ice pack. If you want to know what to do about spiders, yellowjackets or fire ants, well. . . buy this book and keep it handy."
