Insects have caused more death and illness than all the wars of history put together. This fascinating book provides the facts on the fascinating variety of disease-causing insects. Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks are all discussed, as well as some of the less well-known carriers of disease, such as the tsetse fly, the sand fly, blood-sucking assassin bugs, parasitic worms, and more. The history of major insect-caused diseases and how diseases are spread around the world are also covered in compelling detail. The book presents particular illnesses caused by insects, such a Lyme disease, malaria, and West Nile disease, as well as the short-term and long-term effects and treatment of toxic bites and allergic reactions. Information on the prevention of common insect-borne disease is included along with emergency first-aid treatments for at home and away.
