House Guests, House Pests
Available in Stock
However fond of wildlife the British are, we don’t want the birds, butterflies and bats in our houses, still less the beetles and clothes moths. Richard Jones starts his ‘natural history’ with a survey of how human homes evolved, from caves to the first houses, before describing how the hangers-on – from dogs and cats to dust mites – adapted to ‘the attractions of home’. The book ends with an identification guide to the animal life that shares our living space.
