For as long as humans have been on earth, we've coexisted with insects . . . for better or for worse. With ten quintillion insects in the world, there's no avoiding them! And once you start to look at human history through fly-specked glasses, you'll surely see how insects have left their mark at every turn, from transmitting diseases to building empires.

Unbelievable details about the down-and-dirty facts on bugs will reveal the answers to questions you've never even thought to ask, like:
How did insects lead to the Louisiana purchase?
How have bugs killed more soldiers than weapons have?
Is silk really made from caterpillar spit?
Were British soldiers' red coats dyed with smooshed bugs?
How do insects help detectives solve murder mysteries?

The world's most dangerous, coolest, and disgusting bugs are featured in this exploration of how bugs have changed history. You've been warned!
