Description - Bugman on Bugs by Richard Fagerlund

This sequel to the authors' "Ask the Bugman" (0826328350, GBP12.99) contains more valuable information on how to identify assorted insects and arthropods and the best ways to keep them out of your house, all presented with the wry humour that fans of Fagerlund's nationally distributed newspaper column have come to treasure. Fagerlund and Strange are proponents of Integrated Pest Management rather than the technique they label "Spray and Pray" used by most exterminating businesses. Anyone concerned about the health effects of pesticides will want to follow the useful advice in "The Bugman on Bugs", including specific information on what kinds of substances and techniques work best for particular pests. In addition to illustrated chapters on roaches, ants, flies, spiders, centipedes and scorpions, fleas, lice, bed bugs, mice, termites, and other kinds of pests, the authors discuss human reactions to these creatures, turning their attention both to phobias and to the place of insects in our religious and spiritual lives. Amazing pest control tales are sprinkled throughout the book (have you thought about greasing your linens with hog lard to make yourself disgusting even to fleas?) , as well as peculiar facts and even a recipe for sauteed termites.
