About this book

Do earwigs really crawl into people's ears? Is the sting of a Hawaiian scorpion medically dangerous? Pests of Paradise, a carefully researched and well-illustrated reference book about injuries and infections from animals found in Hawai'i, answers these questions and many more in everyday language and in a user-friendly format. It describes each animal in words and color photos, then identifies the mechanism of injury, incidence, prevention, and signs and symptoms of injury or infection. The authors offer first aid recommendations and discuss advanced medical treatment based on the latest published literature.
