Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon's Army & Other Diabolical Insects
by Amy Stewart (Author)

In this darkly comical look at the sinister side of our relationship with the natural world,
Stewart has tracked down over one hundred of our worst entomological foes―creatures
that infest, infect, and generally wreak havoc on human affairs. From the world’s most
painful hornet, to the flies that transmit deadly diseases, to millipedes that stop traffic, to the
“bookworms” that devour libraries, to the Japanese beetles munching on your roses, Wicked Bugs
delves into the extraordinary powers of six- and eight-legged creatures.

Entomology and Pest Management, Sixth Edition
by Larry P. Pedigo (Author), Marlin E. Rice (Author)

Pedigo and Rice expertly combine basic and applied entomology in this reader-friendly, pedagogically rich text. Assuming only a background in elementary biology, the authors present the major elements of general entomology before moving on to concepts in insect biology and ecology necessary for understanding insect pest management. Both theory and practice are emphasized as readers explore pertinent topics. The authors discuss pest-management issues both preventive and curative as aspects of applied ecology, with solutions considering environmental quality, profitability, and durability....
