About the Book:

Mosquitos, wasps, flies and fleas… Buzzing, biting, and causing irritating lumps on your skin. But what if there is more to these irritating insects than meets the eye?

Everyone has been bitten by a mosquito, stung by a wasp or had something itchy hiding in their hair. But how much do you actually know about these annoying insects? Ever wondered how mosquitoes find you? Or how wasps can build nests up to 16 feet wide? Or how fleas can jump 150 times their own height?

These questions and more are answered in this book that explores the lives of some of the most irritating buzzing, biting and stinging insects. Teaching readers that perhaps these pesky insects might not be so bad after all.
