Tiny Game Hunting is the delightful name of a useful book [that tells] how to get ants to move by pouring a blended solution of lemon peel on their nest, how to repel gophers with Juicy Fruit gum, and how to confuse thrips with aluminum strips. There is some very good natural history on each pest - so you better understand what makes them tick - and it is told with a fine sense of humor. There are dozens of pests described and hundreds of clever cures in this book. - Los Angeles Times "This book advocates the rational use of alternative home remedies, rather than commercial long-lived biocidal death sprays....[The authors] present commonsense, forgotten, and little-known tactics for dealing with troublesome pests in and around the home." - Backyard Bugwatching"
