Description
In this darkly comical follow-up to Wicked Plants, Amy Stewart looks at the sinister side of our relationship with the insect world, tracking down more than 100 of our worst entomological foes—creatures that infest, infect, and generally wreak havoc on human affairs. Here you'll find the world's most painful hornet, flies that transmit deadly diseases, millipedes that stop traffic, "bookworms" that devour libraries, and Japanese beetles that munch on your roses. Briony Morrow-Cribbs illustrates this mixture of history, science, murder, and intrigue with intricate and strangely beautiful drawings of diabolical bugs of all shapes and sizes.
