Ninety-nine More Maggots, Mites, and Munchers

Library Journal praised May Berenbaum's first collection of insect cameos, Ninety-nine Gnats, Nits, and Nibblers as an "illuminating book that may turn the disgust with which many people greet these fascinating creatures to curiosity and admiration."

This companion volume runs the gamut from regrettably familiar pests like mosquitoes, ticks, cockroaches, and what the author describes as "other arthropodan indignities," to bizarre and obscure creatures such as sheep keds, mantispids, and reindeer throat bots.


May R. Berenbaum is Swanlund Professor of Entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A winner of the National Medal of Science in 2014, Berenbaum is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Her books include Ninety-Nine More Maggots, Mites, and Munchers and Honey, I'm Homemade: Sweet Treats from the Beehive across the Centuries and around the World.
