They feed on us, make their homes on us, and generally make our lives miserable. They are horrible guests, sometimes spreading deadly diseases. These blood-sucking parasites are lice and fleas and they are pests of the first order! This book delves into the tiny world of ectoparasites that prey on humans and animal hosts. Learn how lice and fleas can’t live without us and how humans have been battling the itchy critters, often without much success, since the dawn of time. Special sections give information on the plague-producing history of rat fleas and how to combat the scourge of head lice.

Reviews
Bloodsucking Lice and Fleas

“If you have ever wondered about lice, fleas, or even cooties this book is a good introduction. Great picture and fun historical and scientific facts to keep young readers interested. So detailed I’m still creeped out and scratching after reading it. A perfect book for pre teens looking for the gross factor or for a curious soul needing to know the signs that their dog has fleas.” —Central Maine Library District, 01/11
