About this book

Here is all the information you will ever need – no matter where you are in the world – to identify, avoid, and protect yourself against all manner of blood sucking or venomous arthropods, ranging from scorpions, spiders, ants, and bees to mites, ticks, lice, bed bugs, sand flies, biting midges, mosquitoes, and horse flies.

Line drawings and representative colour photographs help identify bugs accurately, and information on each bug's particular habits and habitats allows readers to minimize potentially annoying, painful, and even lethal encounters. Prevention of Bug Bites, Stings, and Disease is packed with helpful tips on using barriers – window-screens, bed nets, smoky coils, and proper clothing, and on choosing the right repellent for the right bug in the right place. Readers also will learn how to apply pesticides safely and effectively.

Based on the best available science, this well-illustrated, crystal clear guide will be a welcome guest in any home or back yard, and an essential companion for travelers around the world.
