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.
