Ninety-Nine More Maggots, Mites, and Munchers
By May R. Berenbaum. 1993.
University of Illinois Press, 1993

Berenbaum, M.R. 1993. Ninety-Nine More Maggots, Mites, and Munchers. University of Illinois Press, Champaign. 304 pp.

May R. Berenbaum's initial collection of insect cameos, Ninety-nine Gnats, Nits, and Nibblers, was praised by Library Journal 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 the regrettably familiar, including mosquitoes, ticks, cockroaches, and what the author describes as "other arthropodan indignities, " to the bizarre and obscure, creatures such as sheep keds, mantispids, and reindeer throat bots.
