Overview:House Guests, House Pests: A Natural History of Animals in the Home - Today we live in snug, well-furnished houses surrounded by the trappingsof a civilised life. But we are not alone - we suffer a constant streamof unwanted visitors. Our houses, our food, our belongings, our veryexistence are under constant attack from a host of invaders eager totake advantage of our shelter, our food stores and our tasty softfurnishings. From bats in the belfry to beetles in the cellar,moths in the wardrobe and mosquitoes in the bedroom, humans cannotescape the attentions of the animal kingdom. Nature may be red in toothand claw, but when it's our blood the bedbugs are after, when it's ourcereal bowl that's littered with mouse droppings, and when it's ourfavourite chair that collapses due to woodworm in the legs, it reallybrings it home the fact that we and our homes are part of nature too. Thisbook represents a 21st century version of the classic Mediaevalbestiary. It poses questions such as where these animals came from, canwe live with them, can we get rid of them, and should we? Written inRichard Jones's engaging style and with a funky-retro design, HouseGuests, House Pests will be a book to treasure.
