2009, 376 pages, 8 color photos, 204 b/w photos & illustrations. Here is a comprehensive guide to the recognition, biology, importance, and control of insects and related arthropods that may be encountered in animal husbandry practices and with companion animals. Unlike similar books, this single-authored guide is focused exclusively on the veterinary aspects of entomology.

Richly illustrated with more than 200 figures and a four-page color insert, the book contains pertinent information about host–pest relationships, pest control methodology, identification, and biology of important pest groups, emphasizing those arthropods specifically associated with livestock and poultry production systems, domestic pets, horses, and those affecting companion animals. Paperback; 6-1/4 x 9-1/2″. About the Author – Ralph Williams is a Professor of Entomology Emeritus at Purdue University.
