Wicked Bugs: The Louse that Conquered Napoleon’s Army & Other Diabolical Insects

From the world’s most painful hornet, to the flies that transmit deadly diseases, to millipedes that stop traffic, to the “bookworms” that devour libraries, to the Japanese beetles munching on your roses, Wicked Bugs delves into the extraordinary powers of six and eight-legged creatures. 

With wit, style, and exacting research, Stewart has uncovered the most terrifying and titillating stories of bugs gone wild. It’s an A to Z of insect enemies, interspersed with sections that explore bugs with kinky sex lives, creatures lurking in the cupboard, insects eating your tomatoes, and phobias that feed our (sometimes) irrational responses to bugs.

Lavishly illustrated with frightfully fascinating etchings by Briony Morrow-Cribbs.
