Today we live in snug, well-furnished houses surrounded by the trappings of a civilized life. But we are not alone--we suffer a constant stream of unwanted visitors. Our houses, our food, our belongings, our very existence are under constant attack from a host of invaders eager to take advantage of our shelter, our food stores and our tasty soft furnishings.

From bats in the belfry to beetles in the cellar, moths in the wardrobe and mosquitoes in the bedroom, humans cannot escape the attentions of the animal kingdom. Nature may be red in tooth and claw, but when itís our blood the bedbugs are after, when itís our cereal bowl thatís littered with mouse droppings, and when itís our favorite chair that collapses due to woodworm in the legs, it really brings it home the fact that we and our homes are part of nature too.

This book represents a 21st century version of the classic Medieval bestiary. It poses questions such as where these animals came from, can we live with them, can we get rid of them, and should we? Written in Richard Jonesís engaging style and with a funky-retro design, House Guests, House Pests will be a book to treasure.
