Living with Bugs answers every homeowner’s questions about the insects and related critters that share our homes and living spaces. Jack DeAngelis examines more than 50 of the most commonly encountered household pests, from ants to scabies to vinegar flies, and offers environmentally friendly solutions for managing them, distinguishing situations requiring immediate attention from those needing simple monitoring.

Living with Bugs is an essential guide for homeowners, master gardeners, and cooperative extension agents.

Includes more than ninety color and black-and-white photographs and drawings of the featured species; an identification guide to common pests; information about life history; and advice about control. Plus information on entomophobia and delusions; Internet and local resources; electronic pest control; biorational (“eco-friendly”) pesticides; buying pest control services; and simple “keys” to identification of an unknown bug.
