KIRKUS REVIEW

Nascent naturalists are sure to enjoy a highly interesting investigation of the strengths and weaknesses of the insect cosmos. He introduces us to pursuit planes of the insect world, wolves of the water world, spider robbers and vampire wasps. Sixty enlarged photographs give anatomical details of the firefly's lantern, the jaws of the tiger beetle, and the poison sting of the wasp --one of the most effective weapons ever invented by nature. Brief and vital introduction to man's insect friends and enemies, who used snares, traps and poisons for their internecine warfare long before homo sapiens did.
