Domestic Pests

Nature volume 143, page 662 (22 April 1939) | Download Citation



THIS little book is intended to give information regarding the various kinds of animals—from mites and insects to rats and mice—which invade human dwellings. Besides giving accounts of preventive and remedial measures, something is also said about the life-histories of the various creatures likely to be met with. In addition to animal invaders, a short account of the common domestic moulds is also included. The book has been well planned, and its subject-matter is scientifically accurate and well adapted for the purposes intended.
