Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mites and lice, fleas, ticks, and tapeworms — most living creatures that have a habitat also are a habitat, including you (are you itchy yet?).

Now an expert team returns for an in-depth look at how these insidious critters do it, whether its leaping aboard moving targets or morphing their body shapes, and what their unwitting hosts have learned to do to fight back and reclaim their space.
