Excerpt provided by Syndetics

Why Bugs? Did you realize that you are surrounded by bugs? Your backyard probably contains millions of creepy crawly ants, beetles and centipedes, not to mention slippery earthworms, slugs and snails. And that's not all -- your house is full of spiders, bedbugs and dust mites. These are weird and fascinating creatures. The featherwing beetle is so small you can hardly see it, but the bird-eating tarantula is as big as a dinner plate (imagine meeting that in the jungle!). Some bugs drink blood; others eat dead skin or cow poo. Some are complete pests (or dangerous); others are essential to our life on this planet. The bug world is full of surprises. Enter at your peril! Heather Catchpole and Vanessa Woods Excerpted from There Are Bugs in Your Bed by Heather Catchpole, Vanessa Woods All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
