From the world's most painful hornet, to the flies that transmit deadly diseases,
to millipedes that stop traffic,
to the "bookworks" that devour libraries,
to the Japanese beetles munching on your roses,
Wicked Bugs delves into the extraordinary powers of six- and eight-legged creatures.
Intricate and strangely beautiful etchings and drawings capture diabolical bugs of all shapes
and sizes in this mixture of history, science, murder, and intrigue that begins-but does't end- in your own backyard.
