MOSQUITOES by Charles L. Ripper


Email this review


Know your enemy--typically thorough, precise scrutiny by a master of mini-studies. The ubiquitous mosquito is dissected, his distinguishing characteristics are pinpointed (although she is the only one who bites), his common habitats identified; then the three most significant groups--the common house mosquito, the yellow fever and malaria carriers--are examined separately (with particular on controlling them). It's the first swat at mosquotoes alone, and right on the mark.
