The bedbug, flea, louse, mosquito, cockroach and other pests which carry disease and are a nuisance to man are discussed in detail in this book. The second edition is even better than the first, with new chapters on mosquitoes and moths and on DDT. Methods for insect control are discussed in full, with educational measures for the public, including leaflets, articles for the press, exhibits, motion pictures and other demonstrations. Chapters on infestation of foodstuffs and human toxicology will be of interest to the physician.
