From the pesky flea to the helpful honeybee, eight insects are examined here with an eye toward learning more about these animals and how we relate to them as humans. Basic facts such as life cycle, habits, and characteristics of each species are discussed, while stories from folklore, bits of trivia, and superstitions and traditions concerning insects from many periods of history and many cultures are interspersed. Including a lively design and dramatic photographs, this is a truly unique way for both insect lovers and the simply curious to get up close and personal.
